Values & Ethos

At Robin Hood our school culture and ethos is: Inspiring individuals aged 3-11 to learn well and thrive.

Our school values are at the core of everything we do:

Ready, Resilient and Responsible

They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an inclusive environment which prepares our pupils as confident and happy citizens.  All children are encouraged to succeed and be the best they can be, they take pride in developing their knowledge and skills, talents and a love of learning.

We pride ourselves in being a Happy Centred School, thanks to Laughology.

The Happy-Centred School (HCS) programme enhances the personal, social, emotional and economic wellbeing and happiness of our whole school community, and support children's mental health.

There are five core happiness themes:

  • Achievement & success
  • Support
  • Coping Skills
  • Self-confidence
  • Positive Relationships

The children use the knowledge, skills and language learnt within the HCS programme throughout our curriculum offer and in all aspects of Robin Hood life.  As a result the lived experience at Robin Hood is extremely positive.
