Our Mission, Vision and Values



Beaufort School aims to provide all children with an immersive, exciting and collaborative quality of education, which leads to successful outcomes for every child.  We aim for our pupils to leave at the end of year 6 equipped with a toolkit of skills to continue their learning journey successfully, both at secondary school and beyond.


Please feel free to get in touch - we'll be happy to help.



Our Vision for the school is identified below, in areas under each value heading. Please also see the About Us page for more information on our school, and our Blog page for information on the latest events occurring.
