Our well-being strategy is driven by our mission statement, vision and values:

Our Mission Statement

At Cononley Primary School we are committed to inspiring and challenging our children:

  • To become independent lifelong learners and thinkers.
  • To value and respect themselves and others.
  • To reach their full potential and become the best possible citizens of tomorrow.

Our Vision and Values

Our curriculum is rich and stimulating: we provide learning experiences which are challenging and inspiring for our children so that they become creative, independent learners. Everyone is motivated to achieve and achievement is celebrated. 

Our children are provided with the tools to succeed at the next stage of their education and throughout their lives through experiences which develop character, cultural understanding, curiosity, resilience and confidence.  

Our children know how to be happy, healthy and safe; they are kind, polite and work cooperatively, recognising that everyone can make a worthwhile contribution. 

We set high standards for our pupils and expect them to work to the best of their ability at all times. Our children enjoy taking responsibility; they respect others and their surroundings and work hard to make positive changes within our school community and the wider world.

Wellbeing Support for All Children

We aim to meet the needs of all out pupils through our the Personal Health Social and Economic curriculum (Personal Social and Emotional Development in EYFS), through the Co-operative Learning Programme and the wider school curriculum (extra-curricular clubs, activities and opportunities). Further information can be found using the link to the Personal Development section of the website at the bottom of this page. 

Additional support can be provided in school for children who may have short term specific wellbeing needs. Children can be referred for specialist support if necessary.
