Statement of Values
Our values underpin our practice. We believe that high quality early years care and education is about supporting and developing strong, curious, confident children.
The best interests and welfare of children are at the forefront of all that we offer.
Our provision is non-discriminatory, accessible and sensitive to race, gender, religion, culture, language, disability, sexuality and differing patterns of family life.
Creativity is at the heart of our school and is used everyday to provide purposeful learning opportunities taking into consideration the rhythm, space and time needed for every type of learner.
We want our children to be: Valued, Confident, Curious, Communicative, Independent and Secure.
In our school we promote and reinforce these values to all of the children and families we work with.
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
We are committed to serving our community and recognise the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. We understand the vital role we have in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
Six articles from UNICEF - Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) form our School Charter. These are an important part of us being a Rights Respecting School and support our equality objectives.
