Ethos and Values

Berwick Hills Primary is a happy, caring school, with relationships built on mutual respect. Our supportive pastoral systems help children to achieve their full potential and develop a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and the wider world.  Berwick Hills Primary children develop skills for lifelong learning.  Achievement and a 'can do' attitude are at the heart of our philosophy; we support this through nurturing pupils’ creativity, encouraging independent thinking and learning and showing that mistakes can be a learning opportunity

Our school firmly believes in making children’s learning relevant and we make great efforts to ensure that learning and teaching is linked to the world around us. We take the children out of school as much as possible so that the environment locally and further afield provides the inspiration for learning.


At Berwick Hills Primary School, we have high expectations of our children. We want them to work hard, enjoy school life, demonstrate good behaviour, show respect for others and take responsibility within the school.

Our aim is:

  • To nurture happy, confident and well-balanced children with active and enquiring minds.
  • To develop children’s love of learning
  • To foster tolerance, respect for others and increase awareness of moral and spiritual values.
  • To help children to become and responsible citizens
