School Values and Ethos

Our School Expectations

The children of The Drive Primary can expect to:

  • Develop a love for learning.
  • Be the best they can be in all areas of school life: academic, social, emotional and physical development.
  • Make excellent progress in everything they do so that they can grow and develop to their full potential.
  • To continually celebrate and feel proud of their achievements.
  • Feel happy, safe and healthy.


The staff of The Drive Primary aim to:

  • Develop enquiring and creative minds.
  • Provide a nurturing and friendly ethos where children are respected and valued and where individual needs are recognised and supported.
  • Provide a high quality, challenging, stimulating and personalised education for all of its pupils.
  • Provide a broad, balanced, creative and innovative curriculum that inspires, challenges and develops a love of learning and one which meets individual needs.
  • Foster a climate within which pupils’ spiritual and moral development will form the basis by which they will mature into responsible citizens.
  • Build a strong sense of community through sharing and living out a set of values, encouraging all involved in the school to be caring, tolerant, honest, hardworking and self-disciplined.


We would like parents and carers to:

  • Ensure that children attend school regularly and on time.
  • Become actively involved in their child’s learning, both at home and at school.
