School Ethos

School Ethos

We have a very strong ethos here at Cherry Fold. We developed our School Values by asking children what they thought of when they heard our school motto. Here are the responses:

Our ethos and values banner was unveiled and signed by local MP Julie Cooper, our Chair of Governors Chris Keene and our Headteacher along with members of the school council.


Fostering a lifelong passion for learning.



Our aims are to develop a thirst for learning in all members of the school community, developing pride, intellectual ability, skills, knowledge and personal responsibility which benefits the person, the school and the wider community.

We will develop:

  • Confident Learners – growing in self esteem.

  • Collaborative Learners – creating positive and effective learning communities.
