Vision, Values & Ethos

Our pupils are the heart of everything we do: safeguarding is of paramount importance and children can expect to learn in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment. We are proud to be federated with Caddington Village School, with a highly-skilled staff team across the Federation, together with a joint Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body, dedicated to giving every child the best possible life chances.

Slip End Village School is a very caring place; high importance is placed on emotional wellbeing and children develop greater awareness of their strengths and needs through the school's bespoke 'SELF' initiative. This teaches them to become independent and resilient learners through developing their self-awareness, self-esteem, self-control, self-motivation, self-sufficiency and self-reflection. 

Slip End also has embedded 'Values Education' which underpins much of what we do. Each month we focus as a whole school on a specific value; all of the values are covered on a two-yearly cycle and, along with 'SELF', form the basis for many of our assemblies. Our values are: Respect, Responsibility, Peace, Appreciation, Commitment, Positivity, Co-operation, Caring, Politeness, Health, Independence, Truth, Harmony, Gratitude, Patience, Pride, Consideration, Sharing, Trust, Well-Being and Hope. 

Our school is at the heart of the community; we seek to establish genuine and effective relationships with our families and be an open and welcoming place, where staff and parents/carers work together to best meet the needs of the child.  We strive to deliver a wide and varied curriculum, making the most of the shared facilities across the Federation. Every child is recognised as an individual and is encouraged, impassioned and empowered to reach their potential and thrive, academically, emotionally and socially. Pupil behaviour is excellent and our results demonstrate high standards of academic achievement by the time pupils leave us at the end of Key Stage 2.

We look forward to sharing our school with you.
