Edith Moorhouse Primary School Reach For The Stars


Vision & Values

Reach for the stars


At Edith Moorhouse Primary School our vision and ethos is driven by our ten core Values. These values were chosen by the School Community: pupils, all staff, parents and governors contributed their ideas, as well as visitors and members of the local community.


We firmly believe that all members of our School Community should feel listened to, feel important and be able to contribute to the day to day life of the school.
