Aims and Vision
“A small school with high expectations…”
Bishops Tawton Primary School and Pre-school is a place where…
  • Everyone is valued for who they are and what they do. We care about each other and do our best to help.
  • Everyone is a learner, whose achievements are praised, celebrated and rewarded at all levels.
  • Everyone has strengths, if one finds something challenging another will help and support; we always have a go and try our best! We are part of a team who support and respect each other.
  • We believe in ourselves and encourage each other to do well; we have high expectations of ourselves and each other. We develop into independent, confident and responsible learners.
Everyone is equal and yet unique, we are all special. We know that we can all do special things; we respect and protect each others talents, skills and capabilities. We make mistakes and we learn from them. We work hard, have fun and accept responsibilities; we trust, respect and rely upon each other to improve.
We promote fundamental British values in order to be prepared to live well in modern Britain and the wider world.
We are friendly, polite and welcoming; our school is vibrant, has energy and enthusiasm and is a safe and happy place to be.
