School Vision and Values



Our Barwell Infant School Vision 2023-2026


At Barwell Infant School we aim for all our school community to value themselves and each other. We create positive and nurturing learning environments where all children belong. Children are encouraged and challenged to achieve their very best in all aspects of their learning. Reading is a priority, as the ability to read and understand unlocks a world of imagination, creativity and new, powerful knowledge. Strong relationships are built between children and staff to enable our learners to feel happy, safe and secure.


We hold high expectations of all, including personal and social behaviours and positive behaviours for learning. Our wellbeing team ensure that we overcome any possible barriers to learning and development.


Our core values are at the heart of all learning experiences. As the children grow and develop throughout their infant years, they become confident, resilient and independent both academically and personally.


Please see our core values which the children develop throughout their time at Barwell Infant School.
