Vision and Ethos

Governor Statement - School Ethos and Discipline

It is the stated aim of this school, that we wish to create a happy and caring atmosphere, where pupils will develop and grow to realise their full potential socially emotionally and academically.

The overall ethos of the school reflects this aim. The values of care, consideration for others, friendship and trust, are positively encouraged at every opportunity by staff and children alike. When these values become a part of the child’s own personal code, it affects their outlook on the way they conduct themselves.

The aims of the schools’ Behaviour Management Policy reflect the above and recognises that children should accept the views and values of others while still having the right to their own beliefs.

To ensure the children fulfil their academic potential work is matched to different abilities within each class. If the need arises Individual Education Plans will be established to enable children with SEND to access their full entitlement.

Shute Ethos and Values

Shute Primary School seeks to ‘Transform Learning’ to ensure that every child achieves the highest possible outcomes.

We are proud of our broad and rich curriculum which is aligned to our school’s vision and values. It engages and excites all learners and provides opportunities for deeper learning, understanding and knowledge.

The values of the curriculum directly relate to the school’s own values which are the values of care, consideration for others, friendship and trust. These are positively encouraged at every opportunity by staff and children alike. When these values become a part of the child’s own personal code, it affects their outlook on the way they conduct themselves.

We aim to provide a curriculum for pupils to enjoy, learn and gain knowledge, skills and attributes from which will enable them to lead happy, fulfilling and successful lives in the future.

We live in an ever changing world and it is our aim to ensure that our pupils are ready to face these challenges and succeed in whatever they do. We do this by providing a curriculum that develops the whole child – academic, emotional, physical and social development.

We aim to offer every child the very best start to their education by providing exemplary learning and care in a calm, friendly and dynamic environment. We have a very high expectation of our pupils’ progress and achievement. To help the children reach their potential, our curriculum is broad, balanced and stimulating and we remain focused on each child throughout their time here.

We take every opportunity to enrich the curriculum with visits, outside providers, celebration days, whole school themed weeks and a wide range of extra–curricular opportunities.
