Vision and Values

Our mission is 'All Will Succeed'.

We strive for all children at Essa Primary to achieve their full potential and reach their goals. We strive for all children to become the best people they can be, rising to personal and professional challenges and achieving 'success' in their lives.

Through carrying out and embodying our core values every day, and displaying the Essa characteristics and behaviours in all they do, we believe that 'All Will Succeed':

We believe that effort is a key component to success and achievement. To be able to be resilient and overcome adversity enables students and staff to exceed expectations and overcome any challenges they may face in their academic, personal and professional journey.

What 'effort' means to us:

  • To put 100% into everything we do.

  • To have a growth mindset.

  • To be resilient.

  • To never give up.


Our standards represent who we are as professionals and people. At Essa Primary we place a great deal of emphasis on punctuality, attendance and uniform, as we believe that students who are on time with the correct attitude and ready to learn are much more likely to succeed.

What 'standards' means to us:

  • To always be on time and ready to learn.

  • To always demonstrate excellent behaviour.

  • To achieve above 96% attendance.

  • To always have the correct uniform and equipment.


Our character, our personality, our heart. At Essa Primary, the development of soft skills and character building is just as important to us as academic success. We want our children to be great people who respect the local community, each other and demonstrate the British Values. Our Extra Curricular programme enables students to go above and beyond within particular subject areas, developing skills and hobbies for life.

What 'spirit' means to us:

  • To always do the right thing.

  • To go above and beyond.

  • To demonstrate energy and enthusiasm.


The ultimate goal which underpins our mission that 'All Will Succeed', is that every student achieves what they need to be successful in the future. We expect all children to aim high and set challenging short- and long-term goals and targets for themselves.  

What 'achievement' means to us:

  • To strive to achieve your potential.

  • To always make at least expected progress.

  • To set high aspirations and goals.
