School ethos and learning values

Ethos and learning values


As a church school in the Diocese of Hereford Multi Academy Trust our Christian vision of “Be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love” (1 Corinthians 16:13-14) 

is central to all aspects of life at Bitterley School. We have a warm welcoming and family atmosphere evident in all aspects of school life.


At Bitterley Primary School our priority is to develop a love of learning, inspired by quality teaching by building and developing upon all of our individual talents. We work tirelessly to ensure that our children enjoy a stimulating and diverse education; children are happy, feel safe and are valued. Learning experiences are rich and enjoyable.


School Values

At Bitterley school, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Values support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school. We want these values to be  ‘living the values’. We believe that they are values which are important within the school community and which will also be important throughout life.


Pupils are encouraged to apply our learning values of:

  • Enthusiasm      
  • Determination  
  • Perseverance  
  • Creativity        
  • Collaboration   

in all of their lessons as well as the wider life of school.


Through values we aim to:

  • Improve behaviour, conduct and self confidence by developing strong values within the pupils at the school.
  • Encourage children to ‘live the values’ in all aspects of their lives both in school and out.
  • Promote values to pupils in every aspect of school life.
  • Promote values in the way in which adults interact with each other and with pupils
  • Display our school values 
  • Enable children to focus upon the positive aspects of themselves that they can value, thereby reminding them of their individual worth, their worth in the school and wider communities and the worth of those communities themselves.
  • To raise standards by promoting a school ethos and vision that is underpinned by core values which support the development of the whole child as a reflective learner within a calm, caring, happy and purposeful atmosphere
