Our Vision and Values
At Greens Norton Primary School we aim to educate, inspire and nurture every child, staff member, parent and governor in a loving Christian environment, so we have the confidence and skills to excel in our achievements and flourish as fair and kind children of God.
Be fair, be kind and trust in God. Micah 6:8
In the words of one of our Year 6 pupils:
'A pupil leaving Greens Norton Primary School will be inquisitive about what will be next for them and what they will come across. They will have hope - hope that they will do well in the challenges they come across, and perseverance when it gets tough. They will show wisdom, not just knowing what they should do but doing what they should do. They will be safe, both in the real world and online, and will know what to do if something goes wrong. They will be kind and help others when they need it. They will show strong independence even when it is very difficult and will have a good attitude towards small or large obstacles.'
Our school values have been agreed in consultation with all stakeholders and describe simply what we hold as important in our school. Pupils can easily recognise these values and identify how they contribute and influence their daily lives and achievements in a positive way.
In addition to these values we uphold and teach pupils about the British Values which are defined as:
Respect, Democracy, Rule of law, Individual liberty, Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
These British Values are taught explicitly through our broad and balanced curriculum and also implicitly through our daily actions and shared expectations in school. The school takes opportunities to actively promote British Values through our collective worship and whole school practices, systems and structures.
