Ethos, Aims & Values

At Shortlanesend Primary School we aim to develop responsible, co-operative and independent citizens who are able to fulfil their potential in the ever-changing and developing world.

Children will be supported to meet challenges with a positive attitude and to always strive for success. New technology will be approached with understanding and confidence and expectations of the world, each other and ourselves will be high. Aspirations, self-esteem and standards will be high and at all times respect for each other and the environment will be a priority.
Our school motto is:
Shine Learn Excel
Shine - because we want our children to have high aspirations and the confidence and belief in themselves that with hard work and determination anything is possible.

Learn - so that our children experience success and develop the knowledge and more importantly, the transferable skills that will equip them for the rapidly changing world in which they live.

Excel - because we aim for each child to reach their full potential in body,mind, heart and spirit- our pupils will be self aware, independently minded and confident citizens of the future.
