School Ethos

Through cooperation between families and school we have developed a good working model for ensuring excellent standards of behaviour both in and out of the classroom. The children in the form of the School Council have been directly involved with this development. The basis of our core values is that everyone has the right to feel safe, happy and confident in our school.



These values underpin all that we do at Ley Hill School, preparing everyone for life as compassionate, respectful and confident individuals.


We welcome everyone into a safe and secure environment where everyone is nurtured, encouraged to achieve their full potential and to flourish in all areas of life. By growing together we inspire each other to achieve our potential as lifelong learners.

At Ley Hill School our aims are:

Class Expectations Contract

In collaboration with the whole school we have distilled our values into school expectations.

These are:

  • Be kind, polite and truthful
  • Work hard, make progress and enjoy
  • Get Involved!
Our core values make it easy for the pupils to make the most of their educational experience at the school.  They also provide a powerful tool for the adults to ensure the best possible learning and social behaviour.
