Our Mission, Vision and Aims

Drake Primary School and Little Pirates Childcare, where a world of opportunities awaits

Our school and curriculum must reflect the world: past, present and future, in all its diversity.

                        We unlock opportunity and inspire everyone.          


We aim to provide:

  • a school where learning is visible and children are safeguarded and nurtured
  • a rigorous assessment system to ensure no pupil falls behind
  • a diverse learning community where pupils, families and staff collaborate to refine practice and develop positive and rewarding relationships
  • a workplace where staff contribute to professional learning communities; locally, nationally and globally.

So our mission is to:

  • inspire the poets, geneticists and astronauts of the future
  • ensure children are happy and healthy through our values and play
  • develop a culture where reading for pleasure is for everyone
  • make the arts a central component for children’s lifelong learning 
  • build a curriculum of joy and curiosity
