Ethos and Values

At Minsterley Primary School we believe children learn best when they feel safe and secure. We aim to offer an outstanding education that encourages each child to be the best they can be. We recognise individual talents and develop confidence so every child is motivated, inspired and enjoys learning.

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.
