Visions and Values

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.  We aim for our children to leave Hopton with:


  • Strong personal, social and communication skills
  • A knowledge of themselves and an understanding of others
  • An enthusiasm for learning
  • Resilience, confidence, independence and determination
  • To champion tolerance, acceptance and a care for others
  • Understand and adopt the principles of society
  • With personally successful academic results 

We have established expected behaviour and conduct in school, which our children adhere to, both in the classroom and outside.


We have  three Golden Principles which underpin our commitment to the children and our values.


These are:

  • Respect:          Of ourselves, towards others and of our environment
  • Honesty:          With each other and with ourselves
  • Effort:              Trying our hardest to be the best we can be


The children respond to these principles and we aim to apply them across everything we do in school.
