Our Mission, Vision and Values
Our mission is at the heart of everything that we do and part of our daily life at St Basil's. We regularly review with children our mission statement.
Staff and Governors have worked together to develop our shared, vision and values for St Basil’s. These have been shared with families and children too.
Our vision statement describes what we hope to achieve if we all, (children, parents, carers, staff and Governors) successfully live out our mission.
