Gawber School Values

For information about our Gawber values please follow the link below.


Welcome from Mrs Dawn Bradshaw- Headteacher


Gawber Primary School is a small school with a unique ethos. Our children created our motto: A Caring Family School and we feel that it accurately reflects who we are. At Gawber, we believe that children learn best when they feel safe and looked after and this is what you will see in action, if you visit our school.


We have high expectations for the achievement of all children. Our curriculum is  rich, varied and exciting and we take account of our children's wider interests, when planning the delivery of each subject.. Reading, language and vocabulary are at the heart of everything we do and our children leave with a love of both the written and spoken language. We seek to foster an enthusiasm for learning and for life, ensuring each child's potential is developed within the security of our school family. Our secondary school partners tell us that they can tell when a child is from Gawber because of the positive attitudes they have towards learning and life in general.


Wellbeing and emotional resilience has long been valued at Gawber and all members of our community are encouraged to support each other with these key values. The high level of care for each individual is very much in line with the school's motto: "A Caring Family School".


This website will tell you a little more about what we consider to be special about Gawber School.
