Vision and Values

At Garfield, we believe that it is essential that all of our children, parents , staff and governors play a part in writing our vision statement. It is also important to us that all our school community fully understand our vision for Garfield and know how we each play a vital role in translating the vision into an every day reality. We recognised as a school that our current vision statement needed to be revaluated with this goal in mind.

We worked hard last year to produce a new vision statement for Garfield; one that captures all we stand for and aspire to be. Our staff, parents , pupils and governors all played a part in shaping our new vision and values statement.

We decided that our vision statement should be presented in the form of an acrostic poem using the letters of “G A R F I E L D”. We then spent time having many lively discussions in order to choose the right words and their meaning.

We are delighted with our final version and are confident that it is one that we can all understand and live by every day at Garfield.

You can see posters and wall stickers around the school  that remind us all of our vision and values. Our next step is to look at what each of our values would look like to an outstanding standard and to ensure that any visitors to our school would be able to see how we live out our vision and values in practice , each and every day at Garfield.
