Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. Through our values and dedication we seek to:
¨ nurture children in a secure, creative learning environment with Christian values and well-being at its heart.
¨ enable all to flourish in an atmosphere of warmth and trust where everyone feels valued and confident.
¨ aim to grow together as a community while embracing difference and diversity.
We do this, knowing that ‘With God all things are possible.’
At Sheepy Magna CE Primary, we actively promote British Values through our curriculum. These are: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values.
Sheepy Magna CE Primary is an inclusive school where all are welcome. Everybody who enters our school is to behave in a way which respects the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010. We are an inclusive school where we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and where all members of our community are of equal worth.
We believe that everyone is entitled to be treated with respect. We teach our learners to understand that being different is a good thing, something to take pride in and value.
We explain in an age appropriate way, using picture books, that people are different. They have different religions, languages, customs and beliefs. We use simple stories to understand that some people might want to be different and that we should respect the right to be different. We help our learners to understand those characteristics which are protected by law.
Our approach to equality is based on the following key principles:
1. All learners are of equal value
2. We recognise and respect difference
3. We foster positive attitudes and relationships and a sense of cohesion and belonging
4. We aim to reduce and remove inequalities and barriers that already exist.
5. We have the highest expectations of all our children.
We have set the following objectives for 2020 - 2023:
