School Values

At East Herrington Primary Academy we aim to:

  • Nourish the talents of our children, widen their horizons and develop their appetite for learning, enabling them to live life to the full.
  • Give children the feeling that they can cope with their environment with a sense of confidence in themselves as a significant, competent person.
  • Encourage children to feel capable of handling situations which challenge their intellectual, personal, spiritual and moral values, showing tolerance of others and ultimately to be equipped for life in a fast-changing society.
  • Provide a clear moral code as a basis for behaviour which is promoted consistently through all aspects of school life. We expect children to take responsibility for their actions, to respect property, take care of each other and the environment. Pupils are given opportunities to explore their own values and beliefs whilst gaining an understanding of other cultures and considering the impact that this has on people’s lives.

Our Ethos

Our ethos promotes a strong atmosphere of care and support for all pupils. We have high expectations both in behaviour and academic achievement.  The pupils are offered a range of curricular and extra-curricular experiences that enhance learning, develop self esteem and independence. 


Parents should be aware that the school would take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils/students.

In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to significant harm, ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow SSCB (Sunderland Safeguarding Board Procedures) and inform Children Services Social Care of their concern.
