School Values and Ethos

Our Values and Ethos

Northern Primary School is located in the rural village of Weir, close to Bacup in the Rossendale Valley. We believe that the special ‘feel’ at Northern Primary is to do with our caring, friendly atmosphere. Under the guidance of the senior leadership team and governors, our school continues to develop in many exciting ways, providing a rich and quality experience for our pupils. 


At Northern, our aim is for all children to learn and be happy. We strive to develop resilient, caring and confident children through our fantastic learning environments. This was the vision behind working towards becoming a 'Right's Respecting School'. At Northern, we are a Rights Respecting School and support the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This is a set of 54 Articles that cover all aspects of a child’s life – civil, political, economical, social and cultural rights, all of which, children everywhere are entitled to.

.     * Friendship     * Forgiveness      * Collaboration    * Self-belief     *Perseverance 

 * Responsibility      * Respect          * Honesty              * Compassion     * Fairness                                

I am extremely proud to be the new Head Teacher as we embark on this new exciting chapter at Northern Primary School.
