The Hugo Meynell C of E (VC) Primary School

Aiming high; Supporting dreams

Our Vision

Our vision is for all children to leave Hugo Meynell C of E Primary School as independent learners with self-respect and abiding respect for others. We aim to instil a lifelong love of learning and a strong grounding for future success developed within the school’s Christian character.

The core values that underpin Hugo Meynell life are:

  1. Loving and caring – to each other and mindful of others’ needs
  2. Honest – in all we do
  3. Respectful – to each other and the environment in which we live
  4. Resilient – to persevere and not give up
  5. Forgiving – to both say and show we are sorry for angry words and actions
  6. Fair – to treat each other equally and respectfully.

It is our belief that, with these core values at the centre of all they do, our children will be well-rounded, values-based citizens, who are both kind and respectful with an empathy and understanding for others and who are able to celebrate similarities and differences in our diverse world.


We aim to achieve our vision with the children through:

Collaboration:Working together with all stakeholders for the common good.

High Quality Teaching: Securing the very best teachers who can ensure our children achieve all they are capable of.

Individuality:Each child is valued for their individuality and encouraged to develop their skills and interests to become the best versions of themselves.

Learning:Inspiring children so that they have a thirst for knowledge and understanding and for them to developa confidence and curiosity for learning.

Diversity:We are an inclusive school, welcoming of all, irrespective of our differences.

Resilience:Ensuring our learning environment encourages children to meet challenges with perseverance and determination.

Expectations:Hugo Meynell’s standards are high. We strive for excellence in all areas of school life.

Nurturing: Supporting children to grow up to respect themselves and each other in a safe and caring environment.
