Cotmanhay Junior School

Safe, Happy Learning

Our Ethos and Values


At Cotmanhay Junior School we aim to ensure that our pupils are safe, happy learners. All staff at Cotmanhay Junior School are committed to developing our pupils so that they are:

  • kind, tolerant and respectful of others,

  • honest and hard working,

and that they:

  • demonstrate self-discipline, good behaviour and a positive attitude to learning,

  • have empathy for others and have a clear sense of right and wrong.


We encourage our children to have a positive view of their own self-worth, enabling them to feel secure and valued as individuals within the school community. We provide an inspiring environment and curriculum for all children so that they can become highly motivated learners.


All our pupils are aware of their place in British society and they understand, respect and value other cultures.


Every member of the school community is valued. Staff and pupils demonstrate this by showing mutual respect and courtesy towards each another at all times.
