Vision and Values
Our children join Mesne Lea with varied barriers to learning. Many of our pupils arrive below national expectations for their age and a high proportion come from disadvantaged backgrounds and with varied complex needs. Therefore our curriculum consists of many planned experiences in school and out of school to further enhance children’s cultural capital beyond the academic curriculum such as: sporting tournaments, educational visits and visitors linked to the curriculum, fundraising events, residentials and a range of experiences and life skills in each year group that we as a school organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Mesne Lea Primary School is a diverse and inclusive school, which consists of a range of pupils from different cultures, speaking different languages and from different family backgrounds. We encourage our pupils to develop a strong sense of self, whilst celebrating the similarities that unite us. At Mesne Lea, pupils are valued and their voice is recognised.
Our Pupil Voice Team identified five values which reflect us as a school, these are:
Our rigorous, well planned curriculum combined with quality first teaching ensures that we develop our children's knowledge and skills across all primary subjects with the aim that our children are kind, honest, respectful, resilient and determined life-long learners who are great thinkers, problem solvers and who are fully prepared for further learning and life events ahead of them. At Mesne Lea our values permeate all areas of school life and are reflected by the school’s motto:
Working Together for Individual Excellence.
