All of our staff are dedicated and passionate about raising standards and improving the life chances for our children.  We value each and every member of our school community, treating each other with respect and encouraging all staff and children to ‘SHINE’.


Our aim is to provide our children with an engaging and empowering curriculum that equips them for life and future success.  At Glebefields Primary School we enable this by providing our children with a safe, positive place where children can grow socially and academically.


At Glebefields Primary School the breadth of our curriculum is designed based on the particular needs of our community to: allow enrichment of language opportunities, open up the breadth of possibilities and aspirations available to our children and allow the children to develop effective learning and interpersonal behaviours.  

The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values with a vision to prepare them for life beyond primary school.   Through our school values we promote: Resilience, Empathy, Self-Awareness, Passion, Excellence, Communication and Teamwork.

We celebrate and teach the diversity of the world our children are part of, developing responsible citizens who have respect for others.  This is enhanced by the provision of trips and visits for real-life experiences, which engage children in current and future learning.


We want children to leave Glebefields with a sense/understanding of:

  • knowing right from wrong
  • aspirations for their futures
  • their own potential
  • being good role models who understand the law
  • being confident, respectful, well-rounded, happy and tolerant young people
  • having a strong work ethic
  • pride in their achievements
  • learning from their mistakes
  • the world around them cultural capital
  • effective learning
  • dealing with conflict appropriately
