Ethos and Values

We, at Minsterley Primary School, aim to provide a positive, safe and stimulating learning environment. We value all and they are encouraged to reach their full potential, become independent and confident life-long learners, at the same time developing self belief in their own abilities and achievements. We maintain an inclusive environment which acknowledges and respects children from all diverse family and cultural backgrounds.

Curriculum Aims

Children at work

At Minsterley Primary School we believe that learning is a change to long term memory. We intend to create knowledge through spaced repetition and backwards and forwards learning. Our curriculum is built around repeated opportunities to strengthen key concepts.

British Values

As part of our curriculum we teach our children about British Values

The Department for Education have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

Omushana: Shropshire Schools Supporting Bwindi Schools

Minsterley School is proud to be supporting the Omushana Charity to help a group of schools in Uganda.  We have been finding out about the schools from Jenny and Mark and the newsletters we have received from the schools.  In the last few weeks we have raised nearly £500 thanks to some of our Year 5 and 6 girls organising a sponsored walk.  The children in the Bwindi Schools want to learn about Minsterley School so we have written a booklet full of information which we hope they will find interesting.
