Ethos, Aims and Values

Dream, Believe, Achieve. These three words are at the heart of everything at Roydon Primary Academy.

Roydon is a place where children experience an enjoyable, creative and safe environment; this inspires and encourages children to dream big and achieve their full potential. We have a passionate and supportive community which is mirrored in our school, with strong relationships between staff and children built on respect and trust. We believe wholeheartedly that a ‘can do’ attitude leads to our children achieving their goals through hard work and perseverance. We believe that our impressive outdoor spaces which are utilised regularly, promotes creativity, well-being, respect for the environment and fuels imaginative learning.

We believe that a happy school is a successful school.


Together, we seek to develop children to become:

  • Keen to  learn and achieve
  • Confident, hard working and motivated
  • Independent and self-disciplined
  • Happy, co-operative and responsible
  • Healthy and safe
  • Good communicators and responsible citizens

We do this by:

  • Providing a secure environment which encourages thinking, learning and caring
  • Setting clear and high expectations about standards of work
  • Promoting high standards of behaviour based on self respect and respect for others within and beyond the school community
  • Involving children in decision making
  • Motivating and encouraging
  • Celebrating and rewarding succes, both inside and outside of school
  • Valuing the individual
  • Involving families in their child’s education
