SCHOOL ETHOS

In our school we are committed to providing appropriate opportunities for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural values through both the ethos and the curriculum.  This will be undertaken in partnership with parents/carers and will take account of the individual needs of pupils and the views of parents/carers.

 

Our school welcomes and encourages diversity and individuality, while emphasizing our common commitment to moral values such as honesty, respect for others, compassion and justice.  Fundamental principles of our school are that all who are involved in the life of our school have the right to be respected as individuals and carry the responsibility to act in a considerate and respectful manner towards others.  We are firmly committed to the elimination of any form of discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, gender or disability.

Promoting Positive Behaviour

 

Good behaviour is essential for good learning to take place.  The general aim of the school is to provide an atmosphere of mutual respect and collective responsibility.  Pupils, parents and staff all have an important part to play in producing and sustaining this positive ethos.  The rules of the school are of a common sense nature, bearing in mind the interest and safety of all concerned.

 

Our school rules are:-

 

1.   Speak and listen respectfully to others.

2 .  Act kindly towards others.

3 .  Look after everyone’s property.

4 .  Be responsible inside the school and in the playground.
