School Vision & Values

‘Together, we will nurture, inspire, challenge and achieve’

At South Wonston Primary School our vision is to provide a safe and friendly school community where our children are encouraged to become curious, courageous and resilient learners.


We nurture our children, building an inclusive community based on respect, ambition and achievement.


We inspire our children to discover, develop and celebrate their unique talents and abilities.


We believe that every child can succeed.  We challenge and support our children to be resilient and to overcome obstacles, equipping them with the attitudes and skills that will enable them to achieve their personal best and prepare them for the future developing world.


Through both ambition and determination our children learn to achieve by respecting the beliefs, religions and cultures of others, celebrating diversity and supporting each other to be the best that we can be.
