Vision and Values

The benefits of belonging to a small school are the strong feelings of loyalty, tolerance, and sensitivity that are developed, which create an extended family atmosphere.  We encourage this, and work hard to develop good team work amongst pupils and also between pupils and the adult population supporting the school.  We place emphasis on confidence building, active participation and developing a strong sense of individual contribution to school life. We encourage children to develop lively and enquiring minds, to question and discuss rationally, and apply their knowledge to new situations.

From our Mission Statement, we draw the following values which are fundamental to our life in school:

  • Imaginative
  • Kind
  • Joyful
  • Respectful
  • Inquisitive
  • Confident
  • Courageous
  • Independent


By the end of their time at St Bartholomew’s School, we expect our children to be active and responsible contributors, capable of coping with challenging and changing situations.
