More than a Motto ...
Live - Preparing children for life.
We believe in preparing children for life, helping them to find their place in the world.
We do this by ensuring the things we do have a purpose beyond our school boundaries and ensure we keep things relevant.
Love - Love ourselves, learning, our community, and each other.
We want children to love themselves, being confident, proud and happy individuals.
We want children to love learning, finding something that they have passion for and excites them.
We want children to love where they live, taking care of their environment and people around them.
Laugh - At themselves and with each other
We want to develop children who have a sense of humour, can be confident to laugh at themselves, the staff and with others.
We want learning to be fun - hands-on and inspiring.
Sometimes we even do things just for fun, to make lasting positive memories.
Learn - More than you ever thought was possible
We want learning that focuses on developing children who are confident readers, writers and mathematicians.
We want learning that extends beyond the academic and truly values a wide range of subjects.
We want children to learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think.
Where did it come from?
Which value do you value the most?
Our values are best viewed as a diagram, rather than a list, as we believe these values are as important as each other but are most effective when combined.
Who was included when developing these?
These values were developed over the course of the academic year 2019 - 2020 in consultation with families, children and staff building on the 'learning for life' motto from the Local Governing Body to help us define what our school is about.
What's the difference between your vision and values?
Our vision is to bring all children into the centre of the diagram so that they leave us with a balance of each value.
👨💻How are we going to get there?
Our model for improvement is based on phrase "forming, storming, norming, and performing" which we use to drive forward improvements. You can find out more about our plans by visiting our school improvement page.
Psychologist Bruce Tuckman first came up with the memorable phrase "forming, storming, norming, and performing" in his 1965 article, "Developmental Sequence in Small Groups." He used it to describe the path that most teams follow on their way to high performance.
