Our Mission Statement & Ethos

Princethorpe Infant and Nursery School is part of the drb Ignite Trust, which currently has 9 schools in the family. Our approach is simple. We work together as a unique family of primary schools with one vision. 

Our mission is to motivate people to learn.  

We will foster a love of learning and ensure that everyone’s skills and talents are well-developed so that they can choose to enjoy life to the full, both now and in the future.


We aspire for each and every child, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, to be the best that they can be; to be afforded the opportunities to surprise us and to go into the world ready to make it a better place.
