Values and Ethos

Dear Parents and Carers,
There is something really special about Priory Primary School that is embedded in our values
and ethos of hard work, honesty, mutual respect and care for each other. Every child is seen
and nurtured as an individual, and that is how we can encourage them to fulfil their
personal potential.
We are a small but thriving multicultural school in the heart of Bedford and in the heart of
our community. We care equally about our pupils’ physical, mental, social and emotional
health, as well as their progress in learning and skills. Families are asked to be involved in
their children’s learning, to support from home and to come into school for our special
events so we can celebrate children’s successes together.
The staff team are amazing! They have boundless imagination and energy to make
children’s learning fun and full of experiences that help the learning to ‘stick’ in their
Our wish is that our pupils will join the Priory Family, work hard, be useful and kind in all
they do, and when they leave us, take their place, contribute and care for their world.
Welcome to our wonderful school!

Mrs Fraser

Head Teacher
