Visions and Values

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


Be Ready Be Respectful Be Safe

Our vision

Through our moto of ‘Be ready Be Respectful, Be safe’, our vision is to empower students to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value knowledge and skills that will support them, as life-long learners, to participate in and contribute to the global world.


Our mission


  • We endeavour to provide a school day which excites, challenges and motivates each individual child, developing a love of life-long learning;


  • Children are taught in ways which promote excellence, enjoyment and independent learning;


  • The school climate encourages and gives opportunities for perseverance, self-discipline, caring and respect towards each other;


  • We foster a healthy living ethos in terms of mental, food and physical health across our whole community


  • The school promotes opportunities for spiritual and moral development reflecting its Christian foundation.



Our Ethos


Visitors to Gorsley Goffs frequently remark on the happy, industrious and well-ordered family atmosphere.  The size of the school means that every teacher knows every child.  Not only does that ensure continuity of academic progression, but also security and a strong sense of school community and ownership by the children.


At Gorsley Goffs we aim to encourage positive attitudes towards self-discipline and high standards of personal behaviour are expected at all times.  A great deal of time, thought and effort are spent on establishing an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect between adults and pupils.


We aim to make the school a place where pupils will feel safe and secure in an environment where they can work and play, sharing and co-operating with others.  Pupils are expected to show thoughtfulness and awareness of the needs and rights of others.  They are also encouraged to care for things they use and develop a responsible attitude towards their environment.


The children play a huge part in creating the school’s ethos.  They have many responsibilities such as being house captains, the school council and those who are monitors for milk, music and composting!
