We are part of a British society, and it is important to us that children learn the universal principles of:
- Social responsibility
- Caring for others
We achieve these values, for all staff and pupils, by:
- Creating an open, inclusive ethos where children and adults can be themselves, develop courtesy, respect and tolerance for others.
- Promoting mental health and wellbeing through our curriculum as well as using in house and external agency support.
- Promoting equality of opportunity outlined in our policies
- Having a clear code of conduct, where children are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions
- Encouraging the use of our ‘collaborative cow’ learning muscle
- Supporting and promoting leadership skills and responsibilities within the school
- Taking an active interest in our service and more vulnerable families
Our broad and balanced Curriculum promotes these values by providing opportunities:
- to celebrate diversity, different festivals and key celebrations in the year
- to learn about our nation and its heritage, for example, Plymouth in the Blitz, the First World War topic and Remembrance service
- to learn about Key British leaders, explorers and inventors
- to use of our local area
- that encourage a sense of community responsibility; the local Church, co-operative, garden centre, police and fire services etc..
- to learn about cultures and faiths; how are we different from one another, and how are we the same?
- to understand Plymouth as part of a global community; learning about and communicating with children from across the world
