Take Care, Be Proud

We are a happy school and we work hard to make sure our children feel valued, safe, secure and aware of the needs of others. At the heart of this lies the strength of relationships between both pupils and staff. A warm, supportive atmosphere permeates our school and this is evident in the outstanding behaviour of our children. All are encouraged to ‘take care and be proud’ – of each other as well as themselves; of the work they do and the school environment – and our dedicated staff team make the time to get the best from each child, ensuring individuality is nourished and nurtured.

Our teachers devote a great deal of energy to planning for the achievement of our children within a learning environment that is meaningful and fun and whilst we attain excellent examination results, they encounter far more than academic success. We want our children to discover new talents; to enjoy learning; to question and explore and to gain independence, enabling them to move on from here with confidence.

We very much value our excellent partnership with parents and carers and welcome their support and involvement. We know that by working together, we can enable every child to be the best that they can be.

Our ‘Take Care’ Code

At Abbey Road, we take care of:

  • each other by showing honesty, good manners, kindness and friendship
  • ourselves by following rules and instructions and sharing any worries with adults
  • our school and our community by looking after our school environment and everyone’s property
  • our work by trying our best so that we are proud of what we achieve
