School Motto: ‘In Discendo Gaudium’ – Joy in Learning

Mission Statement

Focussed on the principles of child-centred excellence and inclusivity, Roxeth Mead sets out to provide a broad educational experience in a nurturing setting where individual qualities are valued, enabling pupils to grow in confidence and reach their full potential.  The children are prepared for a successful, happy and healthy future founded on decency, mutual respect and a love of learning.

Essential Core Values: ‘Child-Centred Excellence’

Relationships: Great importance is placed on developing a sense of responsibility for oneself and others.  We have a consistent approach in our school rules and routines that fosters co-operation and empathy and provides a safe and happy community where all feel able to work together.

Inclusiveness: We are highly inclusive in our approach to all aspects of daily life.  Fairness and equality of opportunity are central to our ethos and each child is valued for his or her individual effort and contribution.

Excellence: Combined with the principle of inclusiveness is a commitment to excellence.  We believe in recognising each child’s abilities and talents fostering a pride in achievement.  Engendering an enduring enthusiasm to learn is paramount and the pursuit of excellence is perceived as an enjoyable experience.

Community: Close working relationships are developed with pupils and their parents so that the educational experience can be an effective partnership between school and home.

Sprituality: We are proud of our Christian heritage whilst embracing the religious and cultural differences of all children and parents who are part of our community.  We celebrate and respect diversity.
