Vision and Values

At Cottons Farm Primary Academy, we have the highest aspirations for our children. 

Our primary belief is that every child is an individual with limitless potential and, working in partnership with parents, it’s up to us to unlock those talents and confidence. Put simply, our vision is to achieve true potential for all. Nurturing our children to ensure their happiness and well-being is vital to enable our children to progress. 

We have key areas that encompass our vision and steer our moral compass for the next generation we support: 

  • Our pupils are to enjoy a relevant, rich and creative curriculum and become life-long learners. 
  • Well-rounded skills development ensures our children are confident, aspirational, future-ready individuals. 
  • We provide a nurturing, secure environment, where children feel secure and happy to thrive through their educational journey at Cottons. 
  • Through the celebration and appreciation of diversity, children have strong global awareness. 


Determined that our pupils leave Cottons Farm, as confident, responsible, life-long learners able to make a positive contribution to society, we strive to create a learning community. One which is rich in opportunity, where everyone is valued, empowered and challenged to achieve their potential and excel in their achievements. 

Through our caring and inclusive learning environment, we aim to nurture and develop mutual respect, tolerance and teamwork - encouraging pupils to embrace diversity and value one another equally. 

In partnership with parents, we aim to communicate well, and develop a shared understanding of how best to support your child. Their happiness and recognition of their success will always be at the centre of everything we aim to do.
