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
