At the heart of everything we do is a belief that everyone is unique, everyone is valued and everyone is loved.
"Love each other as I have loved you." John 15:12
Our vision statement for the school is:-
“Valuing all children within an inclusive community.”
This is a happy, family school in which we encourage pupils and adults to have a caring and considerate attitude towards one another. There is a strong Christian ethos of acceptance within the school. We recognise and value the uniqueness of every child, helping all to achieve their best within a safe, secure and creative environment.
We aim to enable children to learn skills, knowledge and develop concepts that will help them grow into positive, responsible people who can work and co-operate with others and hopefully be better equipped for life in today’s ever changing society.

A People Place
If this is not the place where tears are understood,
Where do I go to cry?
If this is not a place where my spirits can take wing,
Where do I go to fly?
If this is not a place where my questions can be asked,
Where do I go to seek?
If this is not a place where my feelings can be heard,
Where do I go to speak?
If this is not a place where you can accept me as I am,
Where can I go to be?
If this is not a place where I can try and learn to grow,
Where can I just be me?"
The school is sited in attractive grounds, with mature trees and planting. The conservation area and wildlife pond

Beyond the Classroom......
So much of the learning and development at primary school comes from outside the core curriculum. The fantastic atmosphere and attitudes at the school are also greatly supported by the clubs, regular trips and sporting events that children enjoy. We have a School Council, where children represent their classmates to bring about changes in how the school is run and the equipment and facilities available to them outside the classroom. Please get in touch and we’ll be happy to tell you more about what we’ve been doing most recently.
Parents....... Get involved?
We have a thriving PTA here at High Littleton Primary School and hold a variety of social events for both
children and parents throughout the year . The funds raised by the PTA make an important contribution to
resources which enhance the learning experiences and environment for all our children beyond those funded by the school. The Parent Council has been running for over a year at school. We discuss a wide range of issues including school dinners, uniform and reporting procedures and after-school clubs.
