Welcome to

Stalyhill Infant School

Inspiring young minds, creating learners for life


Mission Statement, Vision and Values



All the Staff have been working hard over the last half term to set the direction of the school and to really understand and encapsulate who we are and what we are about.  We have put together a new Mission Statement for our school:


Inspiring young minds, creating learners for life


We felt that this summed up what we are aiming to do in school every day and we hope that you feel it is a fitting statement for us.


Alongside this we have developed a clear vision for the future of the school and a set of values and behaviours that we will aim to demonstrate in order to achieve our vision. These are also on display in the entrance of school.



At Stalyhill Infant School our vision is to be a school that has the confidence, ambition and support to challenge our own boundaries and…


  • Has a clear focus on learning without limits

  • Promotes a safe, nurturing environment that enables children to take calculated risks, make decisions, ask questions and be independent

  • Seizes every opportunity as a learning opportunity

  • Provides a stimulating environment for enquiring minds

  • Recognises that learning is not confined to the classroom

  • Values and celebrates the contribution and skills of all stakeholders and every small step taken along a child’s learning journey

  • Values the process of learning, not just the outcome

  • Actively teaches learning ’behaviours’ to

  • Encourages new ideas
