Our School Aims

Working Together, Learning Together and Growing Together

At Ardleigh Green Junior School we value every individual and the contribution they have to make to
our school community.

Our aim is for staff and children to reach their full potential within a caring, supportive and

opportunities for all children.

and numerate with a high level of computing capability.

· Develop spiritual, moral, social and cultural values. Maintain a school ethos based on mutual
trust, respect and understanding.

the fundamental British Values of Democracy, The Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual
Respect and Understanding of different faiths and beliefs.

our children.
