School Values

Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


Our school is a calm, secure and happy place. Every child is different and unique. Every child is valued and given the opportunity to succeed and maximise their full potential.


We want everyone in the school to enjoy their work and play without fear of disruption or bullying.  Our expectations are high and we insist on extremely high standards of behaviour and attitude from every pupil.

All pupils have contributed to our ‘Statement of Shared Values’ and the agreed supporting School Rules.  Our ethos is underpinned by our 5 values - PRIDE.  At Snape Wood, we take 'PRIDE' in everything we do..
