Our Values:
We offer a rich and stimulating learning environment where everyone is valued. Our school
is welcoming and happy and we foster a close partnership between school, parents, carers,
governors and the community.
Children are at the heart of all we do. The school believes that every child has a right to have
a say and receive a good education.
We promote the values necessary to enable the children to develop emotionally, socially,
intellectually, morally and physically and enable them to become self confident and
responsible members of society.
We require staff and pupils to demonstrate the values we have established as the core of
Values Education programme to support our inclusive school ethos, raise attainment and
guide our behaviour. The values we focus on are: respect, friendship, appreciation, honesty,
courage, co-operation, happiness, responsibility, tolerance, peace and thoughtfulness.
We value and respect people from all backgrounds, we celebrate our differences and expect
children and adults to work and co-operate with each other. We expect everyone in the
school community to treat each other with respect, regardless of gender, faith, ethnicity or
ability.
We recognise that everyone in our school community has a role to play ensuring a
supportive, inclusive ethos is developed and maintained so that the best possible education
can be provided to cater for the needs of all its pupils.
