At Streetsbrook Infant & Early Years Academy we recognise that our values and ethos are central to the development of the whole child and are at the heart of our school's purpose and the educational process. Our values are embedded in the life of our school and reflected through its character and spirit. We recognise that these values are central to the development of positive attitudes and behaviour.
We believe that nurturing good learning behaviours in children at an early age impacts positively on the standard of behaviour in school and with parental support, this will extend beyond the school gate.
Children, staff, parents and governors have agreed the following five core values as being integral to our school:
Developing successful relationships where individuals can build and follow their dreams.
Desire to learn
To enjoy the lifelong process and challenge of learning; alone and with others.
Having the self-belief to embrace and follow your own choices.
Love and Respect
To have respect for ourselves, others and the environment, recognising and celebrating individual lifestyles, cultures and faiths.
Being a good citizen
Making a positive contribution to communities on a local and global scale.
These shared ideals have given us a collective set of values and beliefs; they are made explicit to everyone in our school community and displayed around the school, including in classrooms.
To help our children aspire to these values, all staff demonstrate positive models of behaviour at all times and share a common expectation regarding the behaviour and attitudes of the children in school. A consistent approach to behaviour and discipline is the key to a successful, happy school.
