Our Values

Our values guide our actions in the way we relate to others and
the world around us, and are infused throughout our whole curriculum.

Our vision

Moriah children value themselves,

others, and the environment.

Our purpose

Children are inspired to become active and

engaged learners through high quality education,

an outstanding curriculum and our

ongoing commitment to sustainability.

Weaving the mat

The teachers at Moriah follow children’s individual interests and our programme is based around a

woven mat of three areas: Moriah values, Enviroschools guiding principles and the  strands of
