School ethos and values

At Bellingham First School we aim to create a secure, stable, happy environment where children successfully acquire skills and knowledge in their development as individuals and as members of the community.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum across the age ranges to ensure a continuity of learning that is matched to differing educational needs, working in partnership with neighbouring schools.

We highly value the importance of English and Maths.

Our Healthy School Award demonstrates our committment to promoting healthy lifestyles amongst the whole school.

Children are encouraged to participate in all activities to learn and make progress, to have a greater understanding of themselves, other people and the world in which we live in.

We encourage children to become caring and considerate, to have respect for others and to be responsible for their own behaviour.
