At Little Digmoor we believe that education is a great leveller, where every child has the opportunity to thrive and succeed regardless of their background or circumstances.  We believe that, as a school, we must provide a nurturing and inclusive environment, where we do everything we can to remove any barriers to learning.  We also believe that our school should provide equality of valuable experiences and opportunities for growth. This, we feel, supports every child to make the most of their learning journey, and should be interwoven into a curriculum designed for and wherever possible, in collaboration with, our children.


At Little Digmoor, we aim to cultivate a culture grounded in our School Values of responsibility, resilience, and respect. These values are important to the whole school community (children, staff, parents and governors) who were all consulted before they were chosen.  Overwhelmingly we felt that these values would make school a better place and prepare our children for their role as future citizens.  However, the school values apply to every member of the school community and we expect everyone to demonstrate responsibility, resilience and respect.

Responsibility means taking ownership of what you do. It's about understanding that your choices and actions have consequences and being reliable in doing what you're supposed to do. It is also about doing your part to help others and make things better for everyone around you.

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from challenges, setbacks or difficult situations.  It means being able to handle problems or tough times without giving up.  Resilient people don’t give up easily; instead they find ways to keep going, learn from their experiences and grow stronger as a result.

Respect means treating others the way you want to be treated.  It’s about showing kindness, consideration and appreciation for people’s feelings, opinions and differences.  Respectful people recognise that everyone deserves to be treated fairly and are mindful of how their actions affect others.
