Values for life

The individual is at the heart of our ethos and this close school community is bound together by a strong set of values that lay the foundations for learning and life both behind and beyond the school gates. Our school motto, Light Work Life, reflects the principles that underpin the daily life of the school.



The classrooms and corridors are alive with the buzz of purposeful activity. In this optimistic and positive atmosphere where talents and individuality are nurtured and celebrated, the children grow in confidence, develop a sense of their own worth and raise their expectations.



Every pupil is challenged and inspired to be the best they can be and to seize the opportunities available to them. Supported by close and committed teaching, the children approach learning with enthusiasm and energy as they discover new talents and passions and develop an appetite for learning that will last for life.



Secure in their school family, the children feel safe and happy in an environment that embraces the value of community, respects differences and prizes kindness. Equipped with academic and social skills and eager to meet fresh challenges and embrace new ideas, the children move on to the next stage of their education with excitement and anticipation.

My daughters have always been taught respect and family values at Gidea Park College.
