Wellstead Primary School

Sowing the Seeds of Success

Our Learning Values

British Values, Ethos & Aims


Wellstead Primary School aims to provide:

  • A caring, family ethos in which all children can flourish. 
  • Excellent standards of teaching which enable all children to achieve their full potential. 
  • A curriculum which builds enthusiasm for learning and equips children for the next stage of their education.

Within our happy, caring environment we aim to develop in the children positive self respect and respect for others around them. We hope they will be sensible, considerate, honest, polite and helpful, and that they will respect their own, the school’s and other people’s property. We encourage them to be responsible and a high standard of discipline is achieved. In order to maintain these aims, we provide our pupils with caring, appropriate and knowledgeable support.



Wellstead Primary School


Wellstead Primary School, actively promotes the fundamental British Values and will challenge pupils, staff or parents who express opinions that may be contrary to these.

We encourage learning through the process of exploring, ‘what it means to be British’ and by enabling our pupils to:

• describe their own identities and the groups that they feel they belong to;

• recognising different identities and experiences;

• appreciating that identity consists of many factors;

• recognising that each person’s identity is unique and can change; and

• beginning to understand the idea of stereotypes.


We aim to develop a belief in freedom and equality, a respect for the law and for British institutions, tolerance, a belief in personal and social responsibility and a wish to resolve conflict through discussion and democratic procedures.

 Our plans for learning, collective worship and other activities, encompass religious tolerance, taking a zero tolerance approach to bullying and violence and the pursuit of excellence in academic and non academic subjects and pupil wellbeing.

As a school we aim to find that spark, that enthusiasm for learning and for achievement that stays with the individual as they move on to new challenges and into adulthood.


Underpinning this ethos is a range of curriculum learning that include links to British Values. We celebrate British sports men and women, authors, actors, engineers, artists, designers and scientists and their achievements

Behaviour Principles



“Pupils behave very well throughout the school. They show great respect and understanding towards each other. They follow ‘The Wellstead Way’, treating all with friendliness and care”

Ofsted (Inspection, Feb 2020)



At Wellstead Primary School, we know that good behaviour is based on mutual respect between all members of the community.  Our shared vision of ‘sowing the seeds of success’ based on clearly defined learning values, supports an environment in which everyone feels secure, valued and respected. 


We recognise that all behaviour has a communicative function and strive to understand the nature of behaviour.  We value our school community as individuals with their own unique set of needs, this informs our understanding of behaviour and associated behaviour strategies that are employed to meet these needs.  We encourage children to take responsibility for their behaviour, working alongside them and their parents to develop strategies to understand that all behaviour has a consequence.  We support children to develop the skills to self-regulate and to rectify the actions of their behaviour. This fosters an inclusive school community where all children can learn and develop as confident young people as they journey into adulthood.


Good relationships matter to us.  It is important that staff know the children well and cultivate positive relationships with children and their families.


We teach learning behaviours.  Our school values are fundamental to what we believe children need in order to learn effectively now and in the future.  They represent positive behaviour.


Effective classroom management and provision promotes positive behaviour and good engagement leading to better outcomes for all children.


Clear, positive rules and restorative practices are part of our regular routine.  


Consistency and coherence are paramount across the whole school.  Any member of staff witnessing a poor choice of behaviour, from any child, has a responsibility to address that behaviour.
