We aim for a culture based on aspirations where every child achieves their highest potential in an inclusive and irresistible learning environment. We will provide a place of growth and change to develop resilient and confident children prepared and inspired for life in the modern world.

Fleet Infant School Aims


At Fleet Infant School we aim to:

  • create a culture of achievement by celebrating the personal, social and academic success of everyone in the school community
  • focus on continuous improvement in all aspects of school life through a balance of self-evaluation and external verification
  • embrace new ideas, research and initiatives and manage change effectively
  • value the contributions of everyone in the school community
  • nurture a love of learning through developing creative, enquiring, independent minds
  • develop the skills knowledge and understanding to be healthy, safe and successful in a changing world
  • instil a culture of rights, respect and responsibilities
  • develop tolerance, empathy, consideration and respect for others within the local and global community

School Values

At Fleet Infant School we have thought about the importance of our children being prepared and inspired for life in the modern world.  To support this we have developed six core values. 


These are:

  • Resilience - Resilient children are more likely to take healthy risks because they don't fear falling short of expectations. They are curious, brave, and trusting of their instincts. They know their limits and they push themselves to step outside of their comfort zones. 
  • Kindness -  When we teach kindness, children experience increased self-esteem, increased motivation to learn, improved attendance, and decreased bullying and unkindness. Children who engage in acts of kindness are more likely to be accepted by their peers. Good deeds improve children's well-being and help them develop positive perceptions of their world.
  • Gratitude - Gratitude is linked to happiness in children by age 5. This means that by instilling gratitude in our children at a young age we can help them grow up to be happier people.
  • Honesty - We teach our children to tell the truth, even when it's hard.  This helps to build a community where mutual trust and respect is valued.
  • Courage - Courage means you take the risk to raise your hand and ask questions, to share your thinking with others, to take critique from peers. It means having the courage to choose difficult problems and risk mistakes.
  • Respect - We teach our children to treat other people with courtesy, politeness and kindness and to look after our resources.

Each value has a half termly focus through assemblies, classroom practice and are embedded through every day life in school.  

Promoting Fundamental British Values

In accordance with the Department for Education we aim to actively promote British Values in school to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that whilst different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.

The Key Values are:

  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs


British Values at Fleet Infant School

The Department for Education states that there is a need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”


Our carefully planned curriculum, and fantastic grounds and environment strongly support the children's Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Development (SMSC Development).


We have four delightful characters; Sophie the Social Squirrel, Maisy the Moral Mouse, Spike the Spiritual Spider and Colin the Cultural Caterpillar to help the children understand how their learning and aspects of school life contribute to their SMSC Development.


Many displays in school are clearly labelled so everyone understands how learning and activities support children's SMSC Development.
