Our Aims & Values

Cherry Tree Primary School was founded in 1974, and is a highly regarded local primary school with an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating and a caring, family atmosphere.

Our vision is for all children to love coming to school and to be excited by their learning. We want all our children to flourish and to have their individual talents recognised and celebrated. Our staff are passionate about providing an education that equips our children for the challenges of a fast-paced, ever-changing world. We also believe that building self-confidence, independence, tolerance and resilience are crucial life skills that need to be fostered from an early age, and we focus on these areas in addition to the National Curriculum.

We have established a set of core values that are central to our school:

ASPIRATIONAL - We reach for the stars

COMPASSIONATE - We care about others

RESILIENT - We have a go and keep trying

INDEPENDENT - We can do it!

OPEN-MINDED - We try new things

HAPPY - We have a positive outlook


Cherry Tree School has a positive behaviour policy. We feel we are providing clear guidelines and boundaries to support each child in making the right decisions when choosing how they behave. Our Golden Rules represent our expected code of behaviour and are displayed around school for the children to see at all times.
