In addition, our vision for each and every child at Muxton is embodied in our school logo. We want every child to be:


Muxton is a safe place for everyone.
Our children’s safeguarding board – Muxton Safeguarding Voice (MSV) – and team of ‘e-cadets’ help to drive and embed a strong culture of safeguarding throughout the school. Our curriculum ensures that children understand how to keep themselves and others safe and have an excellent understanding of issues relating to bullying, extremism and e-safety.


We believe that a child’s time in primary school should be the happiest and most memorable time of their lives. We want every child to come to school with a smile and enjoy the learning and experiences which we provide. We have access to a wide network of support and expertise to ensure that children are well supported in their emotional and mental health and well-being.


Children express themselves creatively through the wide range of creative and artistic opportunities which our curriculum provides. They thrive on the exciting and purposeful contexts for learning which promote creative thinking and enhance their problem-solving and reasoning abilities.


Every child at Muxton learns about the importance of being a responsible member of our school, local and global community. There is a strong emphasis on making safe and responsible choices. There are many opportunities for children to develop leadership skills and talents including taking on roles such as prefects, school councillors, librarians, monitors, e-cadets, our children’s safeguarding board (MSV), play leaders and house captains.

At the heart of school life and throughout our curriculum, we want to nurture every child’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development whilst being successful in their learning at Muxton, children will also be:
¨ Reflecting on beliefs and values, being creative and imaginative and enjoying the world around them!
¨ Learning to take responsibility and make choices about what’s right and wrong.
¨ Learning to be positive and active citizens in the community and preparing for life in modern Britain.
¨ Enjoying a range of artistic, sporting and musical experiences and learning to value and appreciate the richness and diversity of different cultures.
