About us

Creating Excellence


At Van Gogh Primary, we believe education should be a joyful journey, fostering a love of learning within a warm and nurturing environment. We are more than just a school; we are a vibrant community where pupils, staff and families feel valued and connected.

One of our pupils perfectly captured the essence of Van Gogh Primary: “We are like a family at this school, with multiple adults and multiple children” This strong sense of community is central to all we do.

Our dedicated staff believes in the potential of every pupil, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). We hold high expectations for all and strive to create an inclusive learning environment. Our curriculum is designed to be both engaging and effective, helping students not only gain meaningful knowledge, but also develop a deeper understanding that they can retain.

Staff report that they feel well supported by leadership and other colleagues. Wellbeing for all is consistently promoted and staff enjoy coming to work.

Our leadership team, including trustees and governors, share a clear vision for the success of all students. Their commitment and dedication have resulted in significant improvements in the quality of education we offer.

Our Aims

We have five key values that underpin everything that we do:

Respect - I can create excellence by respecting myself, others and the world around me

Collaboration - I can create excellence by learning from and with my family, teachers, peers and community

Integrity - I can create excellence by developing integrity; doing the right thing, even when nobody is watching!

Drive - I can create excellence by working hard and putting effort into everything I do

Exploration - I can create excellence by exploring facts, ideas and concepts
