The Governors and Staff of Victoria Road Primary School have agreed that the ethos and aims of the school are reflected in the above Mission Statement:

Children’s Mission Statement: Agreed by School Parliament-

Our School is a happy place because the children have decided to listen carefully to others, to take care of each other, to try hard in their learning and behaviour, share their skills, include others and respect each other and take care of their surroundings.

The School Parliament is elected by their peers from the body of children and there are representatives from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. They have discussed many matters and had an influence on and impact around concerns such as- unsafe places in the playground, decisions on outdoor play equipment, healthy lunches and choices, quality of home-learning and the class learning walls and environments. They have reported directly in person to the Full Board of Governors. The children have an input on school decisions which have a direct impact on their lives and environment. The children elect a Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition and Ministers. They meet at least once a new term, and run and minute their meetings under the supervision of Miss Riddell and Mrs Collins.
