Alderley Edge Community Primary School

Mission and Aims

Every school must publish their ethos and values on their website.  At Alderley Edge Community Primary School we see our ethos and values as our Mission, Aims and School Essentials which were agreed at a joint meeting with staff,  parents, governors and members of the local community

Mission Statement - An Inclusive Community Inspiring Lifelong Learners

Our Aims

Academic Excellence

We aspire to deliver an outstanding education for all our children regardless of need.

We will provide a broad and balanced curriculum to inspire all our children to maximise their potential.


Life-long Learning

We will deliver an enriching curriculum to enable all our children to continuously learn and succeed in an increasingly technological world.

We will strive to foster an ethos of teamwork to ensure continuous improvement and the highest standards of achievement and behaviour.


Possibilities and Risks

We will nurture the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of all the members of our school community in a safe environment in which our children can feel happy.

We seek to enable all our children to develop independence, self-confidence and resilience and to be adaptable to meet the challenges of an evolving world.


Social Intelligence

We will promote mutual respect and compassion to enable our school community to embrace diversity and to ensure the wellbeing of every member of the community.

We intend to keep our school at the heart of our local community, collaborating with the community stakeholders to create and sustain involvement and opportunities for all.


Core Drivers - ALPS

Our core drivers underpin our curriculum and are our intent that will enable us to shape the curriculum around the needs and wants of our school and the children.

  • Academic Excellence – our curriculum strives for excellence. We know that only our best is good enough and we work hard to maximise progress in learning for all children regardless of their starting points— academic, social and emotional, so that they can be the best they can be and make a positive difference to themselves and others in their community.
  • Life Long Learning – our curriculum allows children to develop learning skills: readiness to learn, resilience, reflectiveness and resourcefulness to be the best learners they can be so that they are prepared for the challenges we will face.
  • Possibilities and Risks – our curriculum allows children to explore what is possible to be achieved when they identify goals based on consideration of people as unique individuals, with their own passions and ideas. We challenge children to extend their boundaries and develop independence.
  • Social Intelligence – our children learn how to appreciate and respect differences and celebrate the richness of the diversity in our community and beyond, recognising all the benefits that this brings.
