Vision and Values

Morton Trentside Primary School

At Morton Trentside we provide a caring environment where we deliver an inspirational curriculum that promotes the development of the whole child so they can thrive in an ever-changing world.

We are a vibrant, innovative, and inclusive school with four strong values: Care, Inspire, Thrive and Achieve  These core values are at the centre of all that we do to support and nurture the whole child. We believe an inspirational, bespoke curriculum with an enriched programme of physical activity leads to the best outcomes for our children.



The Mental Health and well-being of pupils is very important to us at Morton Trentside and is at the heart of our ethos. Barney the Wellbeing dog is a positive addition to the Morton journey of finding innovative but researched based practices to support our children to develop the resilience and life skills needed to be successful in an ever-changing world.



At Morton we strive to inspire our children to believe in themselves and develop interests that may not be available to them out of school. We are proud of achieving the Schools Games Award 3 years running and the wide range of opportunities and experiences on offer to our children.


Our curriculum provides children with opportunities that they may not get at home. We promote the great outdoors and our ‘fifty things to do’ programme has encouraged many families to try new experiences.



Pupils’ behaviour is a strength of the school and is built around the restorative approach. Pupils are encouraged to seek resolutions and take responsibility for their own behaviour choices.  Our pupils are very well-mannered and courteous and know the importance of small gestures such as holding doors open for one another and offering greetings as they pass in the corridor. They listen to the views of others in a polite and considered way. Pupils are encouraged to voice their opinions and take responsibility for changing and improving their school.



Our curriculum is research based, progressive, relevant and vocabulary rich. Alongside our inspirational curriculum we provide a caring and nurturing environment that promotes the development of the whole child so they can thrive and achieve in an ever-changing world. Morton Trentside prepares children to be well-rounded individuals ready to take their next steps in life’s journey.
