Values and Mission Statement

Mission Statement

All decisions made by those engaged with the learning of the pupils at Vigo Village School are guided by two core principles:

  1. To promote the highest level of academic attainment for each pupil
  2. To prepare them for the challenges they will face in their future lives.


An environment which promotes the highest level of academic attainment for each pupil is one which is:
  • Safe: where pupils feel protected from outside intervention and within the school grounds.
  • Relevant: where the curriculum makes practical links with itself and the experiences of children’s lives and surroundings, and learning is aligned to each child’s specific needs.
  • Enjoyable: where pupils can flourish in a happy, respectful environment.
  • Challenging: where progress is both celebrated and expected, where regression is addressed.


An environment which prepares children for the challenges they will face in their future lives is one which is:

  • Realistic: where tasks and activities will teach the skills that will be required in later years.
  • Respectful: where people treat each other in an appropriate manner.
  • Appropriate: where children are exposed to the skills that will enable them to make choices with regard to health and well-being.

At Vigo Village School, every child matters; progress is our pupils’ prerogative.
