On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Methley Primary School. We hope our school website gives you a flavour of our school and the Methley Magic!
On September 3rd 2018, the whole staff team spent the day revisiting the values that underpin the school, our ethos and what the School Development Plan should look like. What is very evident is that the staff are passionate about educating the 'whole child', finding their talents, ensuring they feel safe and happy and want to come to school so that they develop as well-rounded individuals, well prepared for their futures.
As a result, we agreed that our ethos statement would be:
Of course Methley Primary School, but also:
Motivation+Perseverance = Success
This reflects the fact that we want to inspire our children to believe in themselves, to be whatever they want to be. We also want them to understand that effort and resilience are the keys to this and so we will spend time ensuring we promote and develop these attitudes and personal qualities with the children. We will recognise and reward effort alongside achievement.
We are more than happy to discuss any aspect of our school with you and look forward to meeting prospective new famililes/visitors to our school.
