Children leading

Children in our school hold a variety of roles that help them make a contribution to our community. These

roles include acting as School Councillors and Sports Leaders and we are developing our digital leaders.

Every child and adult in the community thinks of themselves as a citizen of Furzeham Primary School, and

every citizen is equally valued and respected; participates in their own and others’ learning; feels safe and

protected from harm; and has their voice heard. As citizens of Furzeham Primary we recognise our

responsibility to be positive role models and to demonstrate through our words and actions that we are

proud of ourselves, proud of each other and proud of our school.


Our school motto; ‘Treat others as you would like to be treated’
