Our Vision, Values and Aims

Our Vision, Values and Aims were updated once again last session.

Our newly formed Clan Committees worked together to ensure our VVA was child-friendly. Our pupils have decided that the vision for Park Primary School was to be an excellent school.

In consultation with our committee members, a Primary 7 pupil created a visual representation of our VVA so that it is accessible to all. Our Acting DHT then turned her drawing into a digital drawing which will be sent home to parents next session to ask for feedback. Once approved, the plan at the beginning of next session is to have our VVA poster printed and displayed in all classes, the ELCC and our school foyer. This will ensure that all our pupils and families are aware of our VVA and what it means for them.

Our visual representation shows our Vision in the distance (something we’re working towards), our Values are printed on our uniforms (as they’re close to our hearts, the things that are important to us), and our Aims are the obstacles/hurdles we need to work through in order to reach our Vision (represented as playground obstacles).
