Bernard Gilpin Primary School is the ‘heart of the community.’ Our school has a caring, family atmosphere where everyone feels safe and welcome. We believe that education is a joint venture between children, parents/carers, staff, governors and the wider community, united in the aim for nurturing confident, responsible, happy and well-rounded children who are celebrated and realise their potential.
We believe in encouraging our children to become ethical and democratic citizens, who contribute positively to their community. Our Ten Virtues: Wisdom, Justice, Fortitude, Self-Control, Love, Positive Attitude, Hard Work, Integrity, Gratitude and Humility place the importance of possessing a good character at the heart of school life.
Our school is a place where every person has the right to be themselves, to be included and to be educated in a safe, secure and caring environment free from harassment and discrimination. Everyone at our school is equal and treats each other with respect and kindness.
