Our Vision and Values

Buxton Junior School - Our Vision and Values

As a school we value ourselves, our environment and the wider community by;

  • nurturing and inspiring lifelong learners who strive to be their best
  • creating strong partnerships between the school, families and the wider community
  • encouraging our children to be kind, responsible and active citizens
  • ensuring wellbeing is at the heart of the curriculum
  • exploring every opportunity for outdoor learning.


Our Approach to Teaching and Learning


Teaching and learning are at the heart of what we do at Buxton Junior School. Our aim is to educate our children so they can make the world a better place. We are committed to ensuring that all children in our school receive high quality, inclusive learning experiences in every sense; academic, social, spiritual and physical. We hope our children leave our school with:

  • an ability to reflect, discuss, evaluate and think critically
  • an ability to be an engaged and effective life-long learner
  • respect and tolerance for themselves and others
  • enhanced understanding and knowledge of the world, both locally and globally
  • an understanding of how one’s own character and social, cultural, spiritual and moral development are key to becoming active and useful members of society.

Ready, Respectful, Safe

We expect these behaviours to be the norm in our school at all times and discuss our expectations regularly in assembly, on the playground and in class.

Our Awards and Rewards 

Our weekly award is given out in our Celebration Assembly on Fridays. Children will receive certificates for upholding our values, such as honesty, curiosity, politeness or friendship. The award is called V Squared and represents our Vision and Values.
