Each school has a vision that underpins everything they do.
It needs to be revisited so it reflects what is happening in the World and takes into account the children we have at our school.
The Pupils, Staff, parents and Governors have revisited our Vision and Values and thought about what is important to our community now.
This can be summed up in one sentence - ‘Happy in learning, success in life’.
This is our vision for Barley Close.
We asked our children want kind of person they want to be when they leave Barley Close. Staff , Parents and Governors also did the same.
Together we have come up with shared values that we can all strongly believe in and that we can all show everyday in our actions.
Our New Barley Close Values
· To show Respect
· To Aspire
· Be Resilient
· To Explore

To make our new values work, we all need to understand what they mean to us in everyday life both inside and outside school.

How are we going to promote our new Values?

We will support the children by having:
