Merryhills Primary School


We inspire children and foster curiosity; together we create a better future with values at the heart of everything we do.


Merryhills is a values education based school. A value is a principle that guides our thinking and behaviour. We initially achieved our Values-Based accreditation in 2013, we then achieved the Enhanced Values Certification in 2019.



Our 12 values are:

  • Collaboration, Courage, Creativity, Curiosity, Equality, Inclusivity, Integrity, Kindness, Positivity, Resilience, Respect and Responsibility.
