Vision and Values

You are here:

At Upper Wharfedale School, we aim to develop:

SUCCESSFUL, LIFELONG LEARNERS who enjoy learning, make good progress and achieve their full potential, regardless of ability, gender, social/economic background or ethnicity - “Excellence for All”

CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives, with confidence in their own abilities and how to use and apply them.

ACTIVE AND RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS who make a positive contribution to society. We value and respect all members of the school community and we demonstrate that every child really does matter by teaching them well and expecting the very best from them

In the Upper Wharfedale Federation of Schools we actively promote Fundamental British Values. These are incorporated into our vision and include:


The rule of law

Individual liberty

Mutual respect for and Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

We place great emphasis on building positive relationships in school and believe that these values should not just be taught but thoroughly embedded into school life.

We actively support our students to develop into active, responsible citizens who have empathy towards others.


Visits from representatives from those of different faiths or none
