Ethos and Values

Our ethos and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.




Vision Statement


To give every pupil the opportunity of realising their full potential through high quality teaching and learning opportunities.


Mission Statement


‘Together we can make a difference.’


Through partnership The Hall School takes pride in nurturing and celebrating the development of children and their learning by providing a happy, caring and challenging environment.




The School promotes particularly, but not exclusively, the following character values in line with our focus on resilience:

  • That the children, their educational potential, progress and welfare are central to all our decision making, development planning, budget setting and the day to day life of the school.
  • That we put success and its celebration within the reach of all children.
  • That we offer a wide range of enhancing and enriching learning experiences which values all learners.
  • That staff, parents and governors work together to provide an effective, supportive and secure learning environment.
  • That each child will feel successful, eager to learn more and ready to meet effectively and confidently the challenges of their continuing education.

Everyone’s Welcome Approach


In line with our school ethos, we have taken on a whole school approach known simply as ‘Everyone’s Welcome’. The key idea is that every child, staff member, family, governor and member of our wider school community feels welcome here and proud to be part of our school. We also want to prepare our children to contribute to school life and life beyond school with respect, kindness and understanding. We want our children to be prepared for life within a diverse society and always to feel proud of who they are as an individual. We aim to challenge prejudice of any type.

 The approach uses assemblies and age appropriate story books to teach children about all aspects of difference and diversity. These principles are promoted in the Equality Act (2010) and are in line with British Values.

This sits within our school mission statement of ‘Together we can make a difference’, our vision statement of every pupil realising their full potential and our character value words such as kindness, respect, empathy, tolerance and listening.
