Our Ethos & Values

At St. Gabriel’s C of E Primary School, we believe that excellence can only be achieved together and excellence is an attitude, not a skill. Our intention is to build character through our character gateways. Through fulfilling our mission of excellence in character education this will catapult our children to success, ensuring that they are secondary ready and prepared for continued success in higher education, work and life. The character values will help pupils develop learning habits that will prepare them for a lifetime of learning in school and in life outside and beyond.


Here are our 5 character gateways with the character values that outline what the gateway means:


This means helping young people build up the mental, emotional, and social resources to enjoy challenge and cope well with uncertainty and complexity. We believe that all young people are capable of developing this confidence, capability, passion and pride to serve their community.
