Ethos and values


Recognising its historic foundation, St Aidan’s aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.

We warmly welcome children from all faiths, as well as those from non-faith backgrounds. Together, staff, children, parents and governors, endeavour to make our school a friendly place in which everybody feels valued.

Our approach is based on core values and we expect all children, staff and stakeholders (parents, carers and governing body members) to respect them.


Our values are:

  • community
  • sustainability
  • kindness
  • resilience
  • inclusiveness
  • peace
