Our Values and Ethos
As a Creative, Cooperative Community we aim to work together as a team, to provide inspirational and challenging learning opportunities for all our children, embedding basic skills and motivating them so that they can achieve their full potential. We also aim to develop skills for life, based on our core values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. We also believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others, which are crucial to ensure our children develop into responsible and articulate citizens who are ready for the future.
We will achieve this by:
Promoting the highest academic standards possible and ensuring an enriched, bespoke and active curriculum
All children are challenged suited to their needs
All pupils feel valued, safe and secure in an environment which is respectful and honest
Children will become resilient learners through a growth mind-set approach
Provide positive role models, recognising success through practice and perseverance and with the support of learning partners
Ensuring a well-resourced, calm and stimulating environment, where everybody is respected and valued
Supporting pupils and their families
At Chiltern Primary School we believe that a child’s early education is formative and enduring. The lessons we teach give the knowledge, skills, beliefs and attitudes that inform future choices and life’s direction. They enable children to begin to discover who they are and what their place in a rapidly changing world might be. Our work is to provide children with a caring and safe environment in which to discover the adventure that is life.
We will deliver our mission by teaching the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum as our core curriculum which has been carefully crafted to create a bespoke, progressive curriculum for our children. We always actively encourage a growth mindset approach with everything we do.
