"The quality of pastoral care in the school is very good. The school’s motto, “We are all different, unique and special,” is evident throughout the school. A strong sense of family exists in the school underpinned by a caring, supportive and inclusive ethos. A very effective, whole school approach to promoting and rewarding positive behaviour encourages the children to develop their talents as well as raising their confidence and self-esteem. In addition, the extensive range of extra curricular activities enriches the learning experiences for the children."

At The Diamond Primary School we are committed to the education of the children regardless of race, religion, sex or status. Our ethos is founded on Christian principles where tolerance and respect for others is paramount. This ethos reflects and dovetails into our RE curriculum which uses the Christian Bible as its core text. It is our intention that everyone feels valued and our pupils are encouraged to develop their full potential in a caring, secure and supportive environment. We believe that all children are ‘different, unique and special’ as our school motto states.

- To provide a positive school atmosphere in which each pupil is not only preparing for the next stage in his/her education, but is enjoying to the full the one through he/she is passing.
