Here at Camp Hill Primary School, the views of all our Stakeholders are vital to us. All staff worked together to write a whole school ethos and principles for the school, which was then shared with parents, children and Governors.

Following this, the School Council met to write their own version of the school ethos and principles, from the children's perspective. This was also shared with children, staff, parents and Governors.


Written by all staff:

At Camp Hill Primary our ethos is to provide every individual child with rich, creative and inclusive experiences which prepare them for a lifetime of learning and challenges! Through our warm, caring and compassionate approach, we will support and nurture every unique and special member of the Camp Hill family.


The 6 Key Principles:

Written by all staff:

  1. To create a safe and secure environment where all stakeholders feel confident, valued and respected.

  4. For all stakeholders to be aware of and instrumental in promoting a shared ethos.
