Our School Aims

At Coton-in-the-Elms Primary School we have four simple aims for our children:

  • Learning to know
  • Learning to do
  • Learning to live together
  • Learning to be

These are adapted from UNESCO and we believe will prepare our children for life in the 21st century.

Our priorities to help our children achieve the above will be:

  • To enable our children to achieve their full potential
  • To provide excellent learning and teaching so that we raise standards and levels of achievement
  • To enable our children to be independent learners
  • To recognise that all people are equal and that we can care for and respect each other whilst celebrating differences between cultures
  • To help our children prepare for citizenship and equip them for their economic future
  • To support our children to be creative in their thinking and doing
  • To be able to have a healthy lifestyle
