Our School Values and Ethos

At Merrylands Primary School and Nursery, we believe passionately in the importance of recognising every child as a unique individual.

We nurture the growth of the whole child academically, socially, emotionally, morally and physically, celebrating all achievements in a safe, caring and creative environment.

We believe a happy child will be a successful child and work to ensure every child enjoys school and achieves.

The Core Values at Merrylands underpin all that we believe in:

  • to be inquisitive
  • to be open-minded
  • to never give up

This means that across the school, children will be encouraged to ask questions, maintain high expectations of themselves and one another, overcoming challenges with resilience and determination in a safe and stimulating setting.

Personal development is an essential part of any child’s education and at Merrylands Primary School the curriculum actively promotes ‘Growth Through Learning’.  This allows children to develop skills needed for tomorrow and a positive attitude to learning, preparing the children for their next steps in the world.  These include self-management, innovative thinking, and communication.
