Evington Valley Primary School's vision statement is 'Caring and Learning Together'
We promote high achievement, fairness and equality of opportunity by working with children to:

*Develop social, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing
*Create a caring and respectful attitude and approach to others and the environment
*Develop independent and collaborative approaches to learning

We believe that each child will succeed through experiencing quality in:

*An enriched, stimulating and caring environment
*An appropriate, broad and challenging curriculum
*Effective learning partnerships between staff, pupils, parents and the community
*Motivational teaching and interactive learning

We show we care for others and care for ourselves when we try hard in our learning.
These are Evington Valley Primary's learning muscles that we use to help our brains to grow!
