Vision & Values

At Millside Spencer we work together to enable pupils to achieve academically; to reach their full potential, and to become responsible and thoughtful citizens.

Our school ethos is expressed in our SHINE values.


What do we mean by SHINE?

The word SHINE summarises our school vision because we aim to develop a community that, regardless of age strives to

  • Be aspirational and celebrate the success of everyone
  • Promote happiness through being kind, supportive and empathetic towards others
  • Work together to achieve independent, life long learners
  • Promote a nurturing environment which develops positive, tolerant, resilient citizens
  • Be Enthusiastic learners, everyday!


We want our community to leave Millside as better people than when they arrived and carry their SHINE out into the world to make it a better place.
