Wellbeing Pioneer School
As a school, we have officially been recognised as a Wellbeing Pioneer School and were awarded the Gold Award: National Whole School Wellbeing. During 2023, we worked on many areas of wellbeing and have implemented the following areas:
Our focus is on developing the whole child, giving them the best possible chance of realising their true potential. We support our children in being healthy and happy, with a keen sense of who they are and where they might go in life.
Our values of Respect, Responsibility, Wisdom and Courage act as a compass. They help us navigate the big decisions and guide our everyday actions - throughout the good and the tough times. They are an integral part of our DNA and help all those connected to the school know what is expected of them and what they can expect of us.
Children that are happy, confident and have a sense of where they are going in life and how they will get there.
Staff that feel valued, happy and inspired to work as part of a team with the kudos and rewards that it brings to their work and home life. They feel a strong sense of well-being – both towards themselves and their colleagues.
A ‘community of practice’ - pooling resources, knowledge and experience to ensure parents and our local community thrive.
We provide an environment that is stimulating, challenging and a place where children feel it is safe to learn from their mistakes.
Our approach to learning is child-centred, inclusive and is focused on the development of the whole child, both socially and academically. It is incredibly important to offer an enriching learning experience for the children through a broad and balanced curriculum. Our learning culture is one of pride, self-motivation and resilience. From their start in Reception, we encourage the children to develop enquiring minds with the independence and determination to succeed at all they set their minds to.
We want our children to be happy in their learning and to take pride in their achievements. We expect our children to make a positive contribution to our school community by being responsible, polite, compassionate and respectful.
We believe in a curriculum that develops the whole child, as independent, confident learners that are resilient, cope with failure and are not afraid of making mistakes but understand and embrace the value of learning through mistakes. The children are at the centre of our decision making.
Respect – A welcoming environment that celebrates diversity
Responsibility– For each other, the School and the community
Courage – Being brave and confident to take on new challenges
Wisdom - Making good choices and reflecting upon them
