School Aims

At Hurworth our principal aim is to provide all pupils with an educational experience driven by the desire to “Achieve Excellence with Care”. Our overriding aim is to support all our students to become the very best version of themselves. 

Our values are based on the four key expectations within the school: 

  • Relationships 
  • Resilience 
  • Respect 
  • Responsibility 

We have called these our 4R Core Values.   

Our core values allow our students to be responsible and resilient lifelong learners who strive for excellence by developing positive relationships and learning to respect themselves and those around them. 

The warm and welcoming family feel to the school is an important part of its identity and we have high expectations of our students in all aspects of school life. We believe that the development of character is an essential part of learning and we will provide opportunities for all our students to experience success. The highest standards are expected from our students and we firmly believe that a strong parent/carer-school partnership is essential as we work together to meet the needs of each child, provide them with the very best education possible and celebrate their successes.
