School Ethos

Our Vision

Growing Together, Learning Forever!

Together We Reach for Our Personal Best.

Our Ethos

Our ethos is to create a Federation of schools where children succeed and are proud of their achievements. We strive to actively promote British values and prepare our children to become role models, thus preparing them for life in modern Britain. To do this, we create a respectful, inclusive atmosphere that is welcoming, fun, friendly and safe. We are a federation that nurtures curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, challenging and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where success is celebrated.

Our ethos is delivered through these aims for our children:

  • To teach tolerance and respect to all children. All children are valued individuals and should be respected.
  • To encourage everyone to have high expectations of themselves in an environment where they can reach their personal best.
  • To promote equality of opportunity and aim to develop the children’s awareness of moral cultural, social and spiritual issues.
  • To have engaging and challenging opportunities through a creative and inclusive curriculum within the school and beyond into the local community.
  • To encourage excellence by sharing successes and supporting the children to reach their full potential.

Through the aims of the Federation, we actively promote lifelong learning whilst ensuring the children respect one another, enjoy their school experiences and achieve their personal best.

 

The ethos of the school is best expressed in the following poem:

 

            If a child lives with criticism

                        She learns to condemn

 

            If a child lives with hostility

                        He learns to fight

 

            If a child lives with ridicule

                        She learns to be shy

 

            If a child lives with shame

                        He learns to feel guilt

 

            If a child lives with tolerance

                        She learns to be patient

 

            If a child lives with encouragement

                        He learns confidence

 

            If a child lives with praise

                        She learns to appreciate

 

            If a child lives with fairness

                        He learns justice

 

            If a child lives with security

                        She learns to have faith

 

            If a child lives with approval

                        He learns to like himself

 

            If a child lives with warmth and discipline

                        She learns to like others

 

            If a child lives with acceptance and friendship

                        He or she learns to find love in the world
