School Values

Our school values have been drawn together by the staff, children and governors:

  • Respect

  • Friendship

  • Excellence

  • Positivity

  • Courage

We believe that in engaging children in their learning they will have a stronger desire to want to learn and make greater progress as a result. We do this by:

  • Selecting inspiring topics linked to the New National Curriculum
  • Linking subjects together where possible within topics studied
  • Using a variety of different learning styles: visual, auditory and kinaesthetic
  • Teaching and learning in different ways: independently, in pairs, in small groups and as a class
  • Encouraging children to share their own/their group learning with others and presenting their learning in a variety of ways
  • Expecting that children have ownership of their learning and independently use appropriate apparatus and tools to maximise their learning
  • Expecting that children mark their learning and that of their peers against success criteria, enabling them to identify next steps for their learning
  • Expecting effort and high standards in all areas of learning and praising children for enthusiasm and personal progress
