School Ethos and Vision Statement

At the heart of our learning at Ordsall Primary School is the ancient proverb I hear things, and I forget them. I see things, and I remember them. I do things, and I understand them. This ancient proverb is demonstrated no more clearly than in the words Play, Learn and Grow Together and it is our aim that by focussing on each key part our children will learn to: 


Develop curiosity of mind and spirit

Create, explore and discover

Adapt and cooperate

Learn, practice and master skills AND

Achieve and Aspire to be the “best that they can be”

By Playing Together


Experience wider opportunities beyond the school

Develop essential skills, knowledge and understanding

Build character, resilience, confidence and independence

Communicate and collaborate as part of a team

Apply learning across a broad, balanced, rich and exciting curriculum AND

Achieve and Aspire to be the “best that they can be”

By Learning Together


Know that we all have the same rights and needs

Know what is right and wrong

Develop tolerance, acceptance and integrity

Inspire others and celebrate every achievement

Work together, in partnership, as a wider community of learners AND

Achieve and Aspire to be the “best that they can be”

By Growing Together 


The phrase "Play, Learn and Grow Together" is the heartbeat of our school and through it, it is our mission to ensure that our children are well-rounded, caring, resilient, respectful and resourceful learners who will develop interpersonal skills, cognitive skills and system skills so that they can be the best that they can be and are well equipped for the 21st century.
