Aims of our School

At Buxworth School, we want children to reach their full potential in physical, intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, social and spiritual growth. 


These are our aims:


  • Create an environment for work which is friendly, happy and secure, and contains bright, lively and stimulating environment


  • Provide equality of opportunity for everyone in the school community and recognise each child as an individual


  • Foster high standards of social behaviour as well as personal and academic achievement


  • Promote self-confidence and independence whilst respecting and appreciating the needs and differences of others


  • Encourage a spirit of co-operation by working and performing together


  • Equip children with skills and knowledge necessary to function within the village community as well as within a fast changing world


  • Develop lively enquiring minds together with a sense of fun and good humour


  • Establish close links between school, parents and the wider community including our pre-school


How we achieve this


We achieve this by following the project 25 values. After consulting stakeholders, local businesses and community partners, the school look to develop the whole child and set and inbed characteristics that the child can use as lifelong learning. Hence- Project 25 development for when the individual is 25 years old.

These characteristics (Golden Threads) include:

  • Compassion
  • Friendship
  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Thankfulness
  • Resilience
  • Entrepreneurial skills
  • Keeping themselves safe
  • Being environmentally aware
  • STEM development
