Ethos and Values
Explore. Be Inspired. Learn
This is our school motto. We want our children to explore concepts, ideas and the world around them. We want them to have access to a curriculum that inspires them and encourages them to strive for excellence. Most of all, we want every member of our community to be a learner and we seek to encourage learners to become reflective so they are able to recognise the value of resilience and determination. We are proud to be one of the founding member schools of Whitewoods Primary Academy Trust
The Whitewoods Way . . .
Our 4 C’s;
Child-centred – Our children are at the heart of all we do.
Collaboration – We work collaboratively, learning and supporting each other to maximise the achievement of our children and adults across the trust.
Curiosity – We embrace new learning and promote curiosity in all, always striving to improve, keeping ‘the main thing the main thing’.
Challenge – We set ourselves and our children aspirational targets and are open to professional challenge and support.
The Trust was founded on, and is guided by, a strong ethos centred on improving the life chances of ALL children regardless of background or ability. We aim to deliver high standards of teaching and learning through developing a culture of high expectation and high aspiration, providing a rich broad balanced curriculum and ensuring all learners have equality of opportunity.
At the very forefront of our drive for improved educational standards is the determination to work together in partnership to enable the Trust to offer the best possible educational experience to all children in our local communities. It is our aspiration to become a hub of excellence, helping to promote the life chances of all children in our Trust.
All of our children, from any background, will be supported to excel both academically and socially, developing the skills of lifelong learners.
Our schools will be exceptional and provide children and adults with a breadth of exciting opportunities promoting curiosity and broadening the mind.
We will build positive, challenging partnerships with each other and the wider community promoting aspiration and ambition.
