Our Ethos, Vision, Values and Aims
At East Preston Infant School we believe that children learn best when they enjoy what they are doing. We believe in enriching and supporting learning through first hand and practical experiences and we use our knowledge of how children learn to ensure that excellence is achieved through enjoyment.
We are a Rights Respecting School and as such, this underpins our Vision, Values and Aims. These direct our thinking and are at the heart of all our policies and practice.
At East Preston Infant School active involvement leads children to become independent and creative, achieving high standards. We believe that learning should be fun and we want every child to do and be the very best they can. We have a strong commitment to providing a broad and balanced education as we want our children to be ‘well rounded’, caring and responsible citizens, with a strong sense of self worth and the confidence to succeed.
The Values that the children are taught underpin our Rights Respecting Ethos:
We work hard – We don’t waste our own or others’ time (we have the right to be educated)
We listen – We don’t interrupt (we have the right to be listened to)
We are honest – We don’t cover up the truth (we have the right to be listened to)
We are kind and helpful – We don’t hurt anybody’s feelings (we have the right to be safe)
We are gentle – We don’t hurt others with our words or actions (we have the right to be safe)
We take care of property – We don’t waste or damage things (we have the right to be safe/healthy)
