Vision and Values

As part of the federation the schools share a vision and set of values. These are very important to us and set the direction for the schools’ journey over the coming years. Our values are the key attitudes we want the children to cherish and develop; we discuss these often as part of our school life.

In the attached document at the bottom of the page is an explanation of how Crossways encourages and promotes the British Values to help prepare our children for life in modern Britain.
