Vision and Values

At Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale Schools we are KIND:

Kind and accepting

Independent learners

Never giving up

Determined to be our personal best

Under God’s guidance, we teach children the importance of kindness towards others, tolerance and mutual respect.  This empowers children to have the courage to achieve their personal best.

Psalm 145:17

‘The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works’

Luke 2:40

‘And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom…’

We uphold these values through our golden rules:

  • Be ready
  • Be respectful
  • Be safe

Our curriculum aims

At Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale schools, we meet and exceed the requirements of the National Curriculum.  It is our aim, through our curriculum delivery, to equip children to:

  • Understand and welcome diversity
  • Have a love of learning with a thirst for knowledge
  • Be fluent, enthusiastic readers
  • Have competent (and confident) maths skills
  • Be ambitious, inspired, articulate and curious
  • Have opportunities to be explorers
  • Be ready for the next step in their education, and later life

  • Perform on a stage
  • Visit a city
