Our mission statement was put together by a consensus of pupils, parents, staff and governors of the school.

There was a meeting in the school hall of Head, Staff,  Governors, Pupils & Parents on 30th June 2016 to discuss and determine the new school mission statement and ethos. The children in Years 5 anad 6  had been thinking about their vision, values and skills and what they think they gained from their time at Great Orton Primary School.

The different year groups gave a presentation to staff, parents and governors about what they hope to gain from their time here at Great Orton. The year 5 and 6 children spent some time chatting with parents, staff and governors about their views and ideas.  These were then written on the strips of card and placed on our 'model children'.

The comments and views of the children, staff and governors were later combined to provide us with an ethos and school motto.
