Mission statement

At Berry Pomeroy Parochial CE Primary School we aim to provide each child with the opportunity to fulfil and achieve his or her potential within a stable, safe and caring Christian environment. We endeavour to do this by promoting a curriculum that inspires the love of learning by developing a sense of purpose and enjoyment. We encourage each child to develop as a responsible individual and show respect for others and the environment. The school welcomes children from all faiths and backgrounds.

Our mission statement, ‘Learning together’ reflects the importance we place on the many relationships within our school community. Working alongside parents and the community, we aim to prepare children for a happy and successful future in a welcoming environment where everyone is valued as part of our school community
