Value and Ethos

Our Ethos:

At Perran-ar-Worthal School we aim to develop a shared culture where every child and adult feels valued, respected and recognised for their individual talents and the contribution they can make to each other, the school, the community and the wider world around them. We want our children to maintain high levels of self-esteem and feel confident in being the unique and special person they are.

We work tirelessly to promote the importance of children being happy, healthy and successful. We recognise how personal aspiration is encouraged through self-belief and purpose. Through our innovative and creative ‘Every Moment Matters’ curriculum, we recognise how purposeful learning drives a positive and thriving learning environment. We see every moment as an opportunity to learn new knowledge, develop a new skill and grow as an individual.

With the ever changing world around us, our community works together to prepare our Perran-ar-Worthal School children for the demands and expectations of becoming a 21st century global citizen, where they can continue to achieve their full potential, not only at school, but throughout their life. As such, we firmly believe it takes a whole community to educate a child.
