Vision and Values

Our School Values were chosen by the team, parents and children and form the heart of everything we do here at The Barnehurst Federation. 

We display our values on a compass as they guide us all in making the right decisions and showing us the right direction.

The Value of Courage

At Barnehurst, our community has the courage to overcome our fears and challenges through a growth mindset.  We have the courage to be honest and to be the voice of change.

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear but the triumph over it."  Nelson Mandela

The Value of KIndness

At Barnehurst, we know that kindness costs nothing and know that our actions can impact others positively.  We show compassion and thoughtfulness to make the world a happier place for everyone.

"When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind."  R.J. Palacio

The Value Equality  At Barnehurst, we ensure that everyone is treated equally and fairly and are respectful of the things that make us all individuals and unique.  We strive to create a world that is more equal allowing everyone to fulfill their dreams

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.  Always remember that you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world."  Harriet Tubman

The Value of Resilience 

At Barnehurst, we welcome challenges as we know that this is how we learn and grow.  We learn from our mistakes and use feedback to improve.  When things are tough we bounce back up again.

"Some people want it to be happen, some people wish it would happen and some people make it happen."  Michael Jordan
