Visions and Values

At Thomas Jolyffe Primary School, we promote a shared love of learning and pride in our achievements and celebration of each others', fostering real enjoyment of our similarities and our differences and, in doing so, showing curiosity, interest and respect for each other. We follow 'No Outsiders' and align this to our welcoming school community where we lay the foundations for learning and opportunity so that everyone can achieve their goals and celebrate success along the way. We promote individuality and inclusion in our school and ensure that every member of our community has the opportunity to shine and to be the best that they can be!


We promote traditional British values in our teaching:


  • Respect for democracy and support or participation in the democratic process

  • Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England

  • Support for equality of opportunity for all

  • Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law

  • Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs


These naturally complement our school values of:





     Kindness and care




We work together to follow three simple rules in all aspects of school life - We are ready; we are respectful; we are safe - to ensure that all members of our school community feel happy in school. Our community has chosen these as being the keys to successful learning at our school and we build these into our daily routines. These form the basis of our behaviour curriculum where we aim to be consistently over and above the expectations set out in 'The TJ Way', which is shown below.


Thomas Jolyffe Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all governors, staff, parents and volunteers to share and respect these commitments.



‘Children are captivated by their learning’, ‘The well-being of pupils is at the heart of the school’, ‘School is a calm place - pupils are polite, courteous and well-mannered.'
