Our School

Our visions, values and ethos

Colton Vision

Colton Primary School is dedicated to achieving excellence, ensuring every child is happy, polite and ready to learn.

We share an ethos of kindness where everyone can be successful, and the needs of the whole child are at the centre of our inclusive environment. We aim to develop resilient, inquisitive learners who achieve their highest potential through an enriched, purposeful curriculum.

Our ‘Curriculum For Life’ aims to be relevant, exciting and memorable. We want the children to leave Colton Primary School as ambitious, independent learners who are confident enough to ask questions of themselves and others. Our pupils learn to be good citizens, to respect others and that they can make a valuable positive contribution in our rapidly changing world.

Colton Primary School chose to join the Red Kite Learning Trust in November 2018 and we enjoy working together to provide an outstanding education for all our children.

Colton Values

Colton Primary School fosters positive attitudes to learning, where children embrace their mistakes as the next steps along their educational journey.

We aim to develop children who love learning, who are intrinsically motivated and who leave our school confident in their abilities and eager to continue their education.

We value kindness, determination and good, honest hard work. The ‘Colton Code’ maintains and supports our ethos.

Care for each other; be kind 

Only move calmly around school; take care

Look after our school; be thoughtful

Try your best; work hard

Own your learning; it’s up to you

Never give up; together we can make a difference
