We are passionate about achieving the best for our children. As a small village school we strive to create a happy, nurturing environment with a caring ethos and a friendly, family atmosphere.
Visitors to Wymondley comment on the friendly, family atmosphere and on our well-mannered, purposeful children. John Schaar an American writer and professor at the University of California said:
“The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths to it are not found, but made and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.”
We believe that a nurturing environment and positive partnerships help to shape the future for us all.
At Wymondley we are trying to create children that are prepared as they can be for the world that they will face when they leave our school. We believe that through our school values, which are underpinned by our British Values we will be able to help our children to become global citizens and be prepared for jobs that do not yet exist in a world we do not yet know.

We aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
Democracy can be seen as a state of society characterised by equality of rights and privileges. It can also refer to our nation's electoral systems.
Rule of Law
All people and institutions are subject to and accountable to law that is fairly applied and enforced.
Individual liberty suggests the free exercise of rights generally seen as outside Government control.
The proper regard for an individual's dignity, which is reciprocated.
Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs
A fair, objective and permissive attitude to those whose faith and beliefs may differ from one's own.
