School Mission Statement and Vision


"Unlocking the potential..."

One of our parents said, "The Headteacher has a positive vision for the school and his energy and enthusiasm is felt within the whole school. Staff respect and value each other and the pupils. I have nothing but high praise for this school and feel very grateful as a parent for the continuing support my child receives."

Our School Vision

Our vision for Farndon Primary School reflects a passionate commitment to learning and recognition of the uniqueness of individual learners. It is driven by our desire to offer the best possible education for our pupils in partnership with parents and the local community. We believe our approach will inspire a love of learning and unlock the potential that lies within all of our children, preparing them to be happy, successful and responsible citizens in the future. Our aims and mission statement meet with Article 6 from the Rights of the child which states we must do all we can to ensure that children survive and develop to their full potential.
