At Sicklinghall, our motto is 'to achieve the best we can'. In order to achieve the best we can:

  • we include.


These are the values that we live by and work towards at Sicklinghall CP School. Each value is underpinned by four key aims which are described below. 

We aspire by: 

  1. putting maximum effort into all that we do. 
  2. knowing how we can make positive contributions as learners and as people. 
  3. recognising our own skills and talents and working hard to build upon them.
  4. always seeking to improve. 


We are resilient by:

  1. embracing mistakes as an important part of the learning process.
  2. not expecting to succeed first time every time.
  3. tackling our next steps with openness and a positive desire to improve.

  2. recognising and celebrating individual achievements and milestones, both our own and others’. 
  3. supporting and nurturing whilst promoting independence.
