Mission Statement


At Green Lane Primary Academy we work very hard to create an atmosphere where children can feel welcome and secure.

We are “A Big School with a Big Heart”

 We value the individuality of all of our children and we are committed to giving them every opportunity to achieve the highest possible academic standards.  Everyone is challenged and encouraged to thrive and achieve as individuals, preparing them for their role as caring and active citizens in modern Britain. Our children work hard and play hard!


We are passionate about bringing learning to life for all children and engaging them academically, emotionally, physically and socially in contexts which are creative and have a real meaning and purpose. Our expectation is that pupils will make significant academic progress but also develop a passion for learning, discovering their own individual strengths and talents through the opportunities that we provide.

To achieve this vision our aims are:

  • To ensure equality of opportunity for girls and boys from all cultural backgrounds and opportunities for achievement and success for all children including those with special needs and talents
  • To provide a wide range of experiences that offer challenge appropriate to the age and ability of individual children
  • To provide an outstanding workforce committed to promote purposeful teaching and learning that develops lively and enquiring minds
  • To build on the strengths, needs, expectations, attitudes and interests that individual children bring from home to school and to encourage and build on the home/school partnership
  • To develop in each child the ability to relate and co-operate with others in the process of learning; to foster respect for religious and moral values, and tolerance of other races, religions and ways of life
  • To provide a broad-based creative curriculum that provides practice, enrichment and progression and makes full use of first hand experiences
  • To ensure a match between the abilities of individual children and their learning activities
  • To provide the opportunity for children to imagine, question, reason, choose, observe, experience, explain, test, estimate, problem-solve, deduce, hypothesise, evaluate and record
  • To encourage children to become confident, independent learners (able to recognise and value their mistakes and to pursue knowledge, understanding and skills through their own efforts and interests


In the heel of my thumb

Are whorls, whirls, and wheels

In a unique design:

Mine alone.

What a treasure to own!

My own flesh, my own feelings.

No other, however grand or base,

Can ever contain the same.

My signature,

Thumbing the pages of my time.

My universe key,

My singularity.

Impress, implant,

I am myself,

Of all my atom parts I am the sum.

And out of my blood and my brain

I make my own interior weather,

My own sun and rain.

Imprint my mark upon the world,

Whatever I shall become.

(Eve Merriam)
