Our Vision and Values

Our vision at Griffin Primary School is to create a warm, supportive, nurturing, secure and happy learning environment where everyone feels valued and are encouraged to recognise and achieve their full potential.

At Griffin Primary School we have 8 core values which we want all pupils to master by the time they leave the school at the end of Year 6.  All staff model, praise successes, support and give feedback to help children work towards the next step in each of the 8 values.  The 8 values are:

  • Independence
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience
  • Co-operation
  • Respect
  • Enthusiasm

Our ambitions for all pupils are:

  • To encourage all members of the school community to aim high in all aspects of school life particularly attainment, attendance and behaviour.

  • To provide a creative curriculum, which develops the moral, spiritual, cultural and social understanding of each child; and is well-sequenced to enable pupils to make progress in all subject areas.

  • To develop cultural capital; with a focus on celebrating our local area and the city of Hull.

  • To promote positive behaviour through our positive ethos and support for all pupils and families.

  • To instill, within a safe environment, the desire to learn.

  • To employ highly skilled staff that are committed to achieving the best outcomes for every child.

  • To promote life skills so children are confident to take appropriate risks, welcome challenges in the school, wider community and the world around us.
