Ethos and Values

Preparing our children for a life of learning…

New Islington Free School is a vibrant and creative learning community where learning comes to life.

We provide educational experiences in real contexts and for real purposes, to enable our pupils to seek new possibilities and find new solutions. The positive and productive atmosphere throughout school sets the tone for learning and creates an environment where pupils can thrive. Our staff have the highest aspirations for each child’s learning and personal development, and have created a culture in which all achievements are valued and celebrated, and all needs are supported.

Our school curriculum draws on the best of the National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum. We want to equip all our pupils with the skills they need to embrace the new opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they will encounter during their lives in modern Britain and in the wider world. For this reason, our curriculum includes strong society and international elements, and we continually promote our school personal goals: enquiry, adaptability, resilience, morality, communication, cooperation, thoughtfulness and respect. These are eight key personal attributes which are essential in adult life and work, whatever the future holds.

New Islington pupils leave primary school well-equipped for the next stage of their education, with a firm foundation of knowledge, understanding and skills, and a love of learning.
