At our village school and Early Years Centre we aim to provide a welcoming atmosphere where staff and children work together to create a happy, calm, caring and purposeful environment.
This will be achieved through a broad and balanced creative curriculum with high quality teaching and learning experiences. This will be provided in a well-resourced school that promotes creativity, inclusion, cooperation and where individual talents and efforts are valued and celebrated. We encourage all pupils to wear our school uniform so that they feel an integral part of the school and are able to show pride in belonging to it.
British Values are at the core of our staff and pupil development and tie in closely with our values-based curriculum. This promotes our vision of ‘Growing together’.
We are committed to developing and promoting the British Values. We believe that the British Values play a role in children’s upbringing and development, by guiding behaviour and promoting good citizenship so that all children achieve their full potential, as well as developing a full understanding of their role within their community. Our assembly programme and wider curricular teaching are key ways in which we develop our key values, including British values with our children, meaning that our children leave the school at the end of Year 4 as well-rounded young people who are ready to take the next step into their Education and into Society.
The five British Values as set out in the 2011 Government’s Prevent Strategy are:
|The Rule of Law||Our Golden Rules at School
Rewards for following our Golden Rules are Team Points, Finer Diner Tokens and Golden Tickets
Our Golden Rules at Pre-school
|Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs||
The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish specific and measurable equality objectives. Our equality objectives are based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages.
We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.
Equality Objective 1:To gather information to monitor whether extracurricular opportunities, enrichment activities and parental support arrangements are accessed equally by all groups.
Equality Objective 2: To further enhance information provided to Governors to ensure that they are fully aware about the relative attainment and progress of different groups of pupils in order to monitor their performance.
Equality Objective 3 (added in July 2018): Efforts are made to ensure that all learners encounter a wide variety of role models, including those who do not conform to stereotypes and those who the pupils do not regularly encounter in the local community, thereby ensuring the school develops a dynamic, relevant and inclusive curriculum.
