Vision and Values

The vision and values of Faringdon Infant School are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and guide our provision of an environment that nurtures our pupils to be confident, happy citizens.

FIS Vision

Future of Faringdon

Including all

Supporting everyone to grow


At Faringdon Infant School, we believe the children in our care are the future of Faringdon.  We want all of our children to have the best possible start to their education and to develop a life-long love of learning. We aim to achieve this through having fully engaged pupils, parents, staff and local community who join our school family from the age of 3 onwards.  It is a place where children can enjoy learning, and feel safe and secure to grow and reach their potential.  It is our determination to strive for the best for each individual child, with no pupil left behind.


At Faringdon Infant School, we believe in an accessible and inclusive education for all children, to stimulate and encourage inquisitive minds.  This is driven by our vibrant and passionate staff who create a climate of nurture and support for the emotional, behavioural, mental and physical well-being and development of all members of the school community.


We are a hardworking school which celebrates its successes, recognising effort and progress as just as important as overall attainment.  We are proud of our Learning Muscles which are helping to embed the desired behaviours in all of our children.  We hope these desired behaviours become second nature and are taken on by the children in both home and school life.  This is a place where children of all social backgrounds are free to learn and are encouraged to acknowledge their differences whilst celebrating our British values.

FIS Values
