Vision and Values

Our School Motto 

Be the Best You Can Be 

Our Vision 

At Gosbecks Primary school, the dedicated staff and leadership team strive to enable our children to ‘Be The Best You Can Be’ whatever their background or starting points. 

Our motivating and enriching Golden Goals Curriculum, empowers children to discover their full potential by offering a wealth of experiences and the knowledge and skills to prepare them for a happy, successful life in a dynamic, diverse and multi-cultural world. 

We provide a nurturing, caring learning community that values each unique child. Our school culture is based on kindness and respect for others. 

When children reach the next stage in their education, they are confident, independent and resilient individuals. They are ready to learn more and are determined to make a positive contribution to their community and society. 

Our Golden Goals and School Values 

Our curriculum is based on our Golden Goals and School Values. These run through everything that we do and will support our children to ‘Be The Best You Can Be.’ 

Our Golden Goals are: Be Kind, Show Respect and Make Good Choices.  

Our School Values are: Curious, Cooperative, Resilient, Responsible, Courageous and Aspirational.  


There are 9 classes within the school, 3 in EYFS/KS1 and 6 in KS2.

All classes are supported by Learning Support Assistants.

Gosbecks Primary School was opened in 1957. The school has its own playing fields and a large playground. The grounds have a variety of wild life habitats including a pond and a Forest School, all of which are used by the children for their learning.  Within the school there is a modern well equipped kitchen where hot meals are prepared and served daily by the school's catering team.
