Our schools ‘Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Ready' ethos underpins everything that we do at Ethelbert Road Primary School.

- Develop a clear understanding of how to look after themselves physically, mentally and educationally.
- Learn how to display a positive attitude towards others in terms of their inclusive, respectful behaviours.
- Nurture a responsibility for caring for our environment locally, nationally and across the whole planet.

- Develop the skills and knowledge they require in order to keep themselves and others safe in school, our community and online.
