Our Core Values

We hope you enjoy our jingle about our Core Values


The oak tree is our school symbol of choice.  We chose the oak as its properties best represented the qualities we cherish.  The oak tree stands tall, broad, sturdy and strong; it takes a long, long time to grow and its stature is all the more awesome on realising that its seed is a tiny acorn.  The oak is resilient, useful and stands strong due to the firm roots which hold it in place.  At Stirchley Primary School, we teach and demonstrate the core values that we believe everyone needs to develop in order to become successful people.


We are life-long learners who:  like to get involved in our learning; think creatively to solve problems; set goals to achieve our personal best.


We are confident communicators who:  communicate effectively our thoughts and feelings in a variety of ways; listen carefully and respond appropriately; feel confident that our views will be listened to respectfully.


We are accepting individuals who:  welcome diversity; are open to new opportunities and challenges; understand the importance of teamwork.


We are accountable citizens who:  take responsibility for our own conduct; care about our school and the people in it; support the needs of others both

near and far.


We are compassionate people who:  strive to be kind, thoughtful and caring; care for our bodies and minds; look after, respect and protect the environment.


 We are successful people who:  set ourselves targets and persevere to achieve them.
