Swanage Primary School: Vision, Ethos and Mission Statement


 ‘Enjoying learning together’


We are committed to being an outstanding, happy school where all children thrive.


Our school ethos

SPS is a highly inclusive school where every child is valued. We firmly believe that every child is unique and we celebrate the different experiences, skills and ideas they bring to our school.  We inspire, encourage and challenge our children to become confident, curious and successful learners for life. 


Mission statement

We will enable our children to enjoy school and be successful on each and every day they are with us. We simply ask in return that the children ‘do their best’ in all that they do, and, in turn, we will do our very best for them. Our goal is for our children to look back on their time with us, with both affection and many happy memories.


We are:

  • Inclusive
  • Happy
  • Kind
  • Confident
  • Collaborative

Our school is at the centre of our community. Excellent relationships, kindness and respect are at the heart of all we do. We value and know all of our children very well. Having fun and enjoying learning is hugely important to us and we believe that happy children become successful lifelong learners. We have high aspirations for our children and we want them to leave our school as confident, collaborative learners, ready for the next phase of their learning.




The school has developed a core value that threads through every class and aspect of school life. We have created a growth mindset culture which recognises 6 key skills that enable our children to become powerful, determined and successful learners.


This is known as              ASPIRE
