Creating a culture of curiosity where children, who feel healthy, happy and safe, thrive.
Values and Ethos
Our school community uphold six whole school values, to help to ensure our children feel healthy, happy and safe. These are promoted through the code of conduct which we expect everyone to follow:
Be Responsible. Be Respectful. Be Ready.
Our school values are fundamental to our PSHE curriculum, but are also promoted through our wider curriculum work. These values are:
These six school values underpin our whole school vision (below). If children and adults in our school are upholding these values, children can feel healthy, happy and safe. Once these conditions are in place, the lightbulb is lit and learning is optimised. A culture and ethos is created where children are curious learners, encouraged and supported by adults who are curious too, which optimises the attainment and progress that children make. The well planned and sequenced knowledge-rich curriculum supports children to ignite their curiosity for learning, in order to know more and remember more. It builds on previous knowledge so that children can link their learning together and see the big picture, being well prepared for the next stage in their school journey.Our behaviour expectations are encapsulated in our three school rules, “the three Rs”: Be responsible. Be respectful. Be ready. Once these conditions are in place, the lightbulb is lit and learning is optimised.
