Morton CE Primary School

Our Vision and Values

As a Church School, we are distinctively Christian in our ethos and outlook, and are inclusive to all. Our Vision and Values were created by children, staff and our Academy Committee. 


Learning at Morton C of E Primary School

We believe school is a place where children enjoy the challenge of learning. For our school community to thrive and grow we provide a stimulating and supportive environment that encourages all individuals to use their abilities to the full. Our school develops the whole child, academically, socially and spiritually, to enable them to progress with confidence. This all occurs within the framework of our Christian ethos which underpins and identifies our school as a Church of England School.
