Vision and Ethos

Our vision is that John Donne Primary School will act as a positive catalyst for change and improvement, working with all its parents.

The aims of our school are to enable all pupils:

  • To improve on their previous best.
  • To be happy in school and to find pleasure in learning.
  • To live in an ethos of fairness, honesty and mutual respect among all members of the school community.
  • To develop self-discipline and a positive self image.
  • To be prepared for the next stage in their academic career and for life.
John Donne Primary School will:
  • Become a Centre of Excellence.
  • Develop as a local 'Hub' that provides a range of extended and complimentary services to include health, art and culture;
  • Further extend its links and reputation locally, nationally and internationally as part of a network that shares and supports effective practice;
  • Develop as a 'training centre' in order to provide a range of educational training facilities;
  • Be developed as an 'environmentally friendly' enterprise and promote sustainability in all its work;
