Bloomsbury Ethos

Relationships are at the heart of all learning.

At Bloomsbury we are committed to working together to ensure that everyone feels welcome, safe, respected, included and valued.

Our Statement of School Values
Our values underpin our practice and we want them to run through every aspect of our curriculum. The best interests and welfare of children are at the forefront of all that we offer.It is about extending their joy, fascination and wonder at the world around them, about developing concentration, commitment and deep involvement. Encouraging them to reach for the stars!

Our provision is non-discriminatory, accessible and sensitive to race, gender, religion, culture, language, disability, sexuality and differing patterns of family life.

At a recent Staff Development Day , our team of Educators reflected on our vision/intention. We  considered our whole school community.
