Vision and Values

Our Vision: Learning for Life

At Halling, we all passionately hold the belief that every child is able to achieve. Learning is specifically tailored to meet each child’s individual needs. As a school, we ensure all our children – regardless of economic well-being, cultural background, special need or disability – are able to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, as well as make a positive contribution to Halling, the wider community and society as a whole.

Through a rich, engaging, broad and balanced curriculum, all children are given the very best possible learning opportunities. Our children are curious in their day-to-day learning and, during their time at Halling, they develop a real thirst for, ‘Learning for Life’.

Our Core Values

At Halling, we are proud of the responsible and respectful young people we are helping to create. Our Core Values can be clearly seen throughout Halling in the way children move around the school and treat one another. We encourage our children to be resilient, show respect, be thankful and compassionate and, act with integrity. Our children are curious and engaged. They take responsibility for their own learning in a calm, purposeful atmosphere which permeates throughout our school.
