Dear all

We are so pleased to welcome you to our Mortimer Primary School family. As an outstanding
school we pride ourselves on being welcoming and caring, putting the well-being and education of our pupils first and foremost. This website will provide you with lots of useful information and a good snapshot of school life.

Our vision for Mortimer Primary School is to provide an outstanding education for every
individual child. We strive to provide the very best, so that every single child reaches their full
potential and leaves Y6 completely prepared, confident and excited for the next phase in their
education.

We instil in our pupils our agreed Mortimer ethos:

  • Do your best and work with all your effort, as doing your best is more important than being the best.
  • Do something kind every day, as kind people are the best kind of people.
  • Be polite and always use your manners. Please and thank you are magic words.
  • We are all different. Our differences make us unique.

Mortimer (infant and junior), subsequently Mortimer Primary, is extremely proud of its history
in serving the community for over 100 years. We are a family – the Mortimer family – where
everyone, whether child or adult, feels safe, welcome and that they belong. Because of this,
they are willing to give and do their best. As a result, we create robust, trusting, honest and
respectful relationships.

We want to give our children cultural capital on which to build, so every child, regardless of
race, gender, socio -economic background or ability, partakes in experiences which will enable them to take a lead role in society in later life.

We promote an understanding of fundamental British values and what it means to be part of
modern British society, alongside celebrating the diversity of everyone at Mortimer Primary
School.

We are forward thinking and with that we consider current global issues. We explore ways we
can contribute to looking after our planet: protecting not only our Mortimer family, but every
family wherever they are, for the future.

Above all, we believe our school gives every individual child an absolute firm foundation for lifeand wings for which to fly.

We believe the partnership between home and school to be crucial and fundamental to the
successful education of your child. We have found that the stronger the relationship between
parents and teachers, the more secure, confident and successful experience your child will
have.

You can find more information across our website. If there is anything
else you wish to know, or simply want to have your mind put at rest, please do not hesitate to
contact us.

We all look forward to our next journey together.
