Northgate Primary School

Our Vision

Vision Statement
At Northgate Community Primary School our Vision is for children to be proud of themselves and strive to be the best that they can; to feel understood and supported to achieve success; to be safe and happy; to learn the skills to give them confidence to face the future; to know how to behave well; to be treated equally and to feel important within their school, family and the wider community.


In order to achieve this Vision we promise to encourage the following in our pupils:



Motivation and enthusiasm for their learning and a desire to do their best.

Secure competency in the basic skills for learning.
To begin to take responsibility for aspects of their own learning and gain in confidence and self-esteem.
Respect for the feelings and property of others with appropriate behaviour and self-discipline.
Effective skills and progress in relation to their prior attainment and future potential.
Aspirations for the future in a nurturing, supportive environment where citizenship and its associated responsibilities are evident.

"We are proud of ourselves and want to be the best we can"

"I know that I need to work hard to learn skills that give me confidence to face the future"

"Everyone here behaves well and we are all treated equally."
