Middleton Cheney Primary Academy
Values and Ethos
Here at MCPA, we want our children to become confident in their own abilities and to reach their fullest potential in all areas of life and development. We nurture a supportive community where every child and adult is worthy of understanding and respect. Embedded into all of our teaching and activities are our School Values and the Key Skills for Learning:
Respect, Friendship, Honesty, Trust, Teamwork, Resilience, Kindness, Empathy
Leadership, Independence, Risk-taking, Questioning, Challenge, Responsibility, Creativity
We are very proud of our school. Please call to arrange a visit if you would like to see why.
Middleton Cheney Primary Academy is part of the PRIME7 Multi Academy Trust.
