Visions and Values

 Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. At Wirksworth we want to create lasting, happy memories which will nurture your child in becoming a successful and happy individual.


We try to create this ethos through our six core values:

  • Togetherness
  • Fairness
  • Respect
  • Perseverance 
  • Aspiration
  • Trust  

These school values and with the British Values are what we use to develop the whole child through our assemblies and school ethos. Over the four years your child will attend our school, we want to work alongside you to support your child to grow to be independent, confident pupils as they leave for secondary school.


Our vision for the future is to develop more links with Wirksworth community. We will start by being part of the Wirksworth Festival in September and wish to develop further our curiosity and wonder of the world by developing forest schools for all pupils and improving our provision of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM.) If you feel you can help develop these areas please come into school and share your ideas and thoughts- no idea is too small- from knitting to building a spaceship- let’s think anything is possible to create the best education we can for the children at Wirksworth Junior School.
