Our Vision and Values

Our Vision


‘If you’re ready to try, you’re ready to fly.’


At Amble First School, we strive to create a safe, happy and inclusive community in which all members aspire to be the best they can be. With the support and encouragement of our whole school community, we want our children to become confident, resilient and independent learners who are ready and excited for each stage of their learning journey. Through excellent teaching and a positive, nurturing environment we aim to give our children the skills they need to learn to fly.



Our Core Values


Respect          We show respect towards all members of our school and the wider community.              

Happiness      We find happiness in our learning and encourage the happiness of those around us.

Growth           We work hard to grow our learning and ourselves.



Our Mission


 'Learn to Fly.'


Every year, thousands of unique, colourful puffins return to Coquet Island, Amble to nest. Each year, baby pufflings take their first flight from this very island to brave the Atlantic Ocean. That is why we are proud to wear the puffin on our jumper and use this magnificent bird as the symbol of our school. Our school mission ‘Learn to fly’ reflects the brave and independent journey our pufflings make. We use this mission to encourage all members of our school community to reach their full potential in everything they do and to prepare our children for life beyond Amble First.
