Vision and Values of the School
Our core values of Resilience, Perseverance, Curiosity and Kindness underpin all that we do. Our vision is for our children to develop these values, and grow as learners, to celebrate challenge and learn from mistakes together.
Our pupils are encouraged to be
Good Thinkers and Good Learners
by developing the key values of:
Perseverance…. Helps us to keep doing something even when it is difficult.
Resilience…. Helps us to feel OK about making mistakes.
Kindness…. Makes us friendly and considerate of other people’s feelings.
Curiosity …… Makes us eager to learn and ask questions.
At Village Infants we believe that children learn best when
They feel good about themselves. This will happen when they feel safe to make mistakes and learn from them. They need to perceive difficulty not as a failure but as an opportunity to embrace challenge and learn something new. This allows them to develop Perseverance and Resilience so that they are eager to learn and willing to try new things and not give up when ‘the going gets tough!’
At Village we promote the fundamental British Values of:
Democracy by making decisions together
Rule of Law by understanding that rules matter, that our own and others behaviour has consequences and learning to distinguish between right and wrong
Individual Liberty by developing a positive sense of self and understanding that others may have different opinions
Mutual Respect by caring, sharing and listening to others, developing a respect for our own and other cultures
Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
