Our school values:
Our School Values were chosen following consultation with different stakeholders. The school children (during a family group assembly), parents and members of the church community all contributed towards deciding the following as our school values:
Confidence - Creativity - Respect – Peace – Perseverance - Collaboration
Love is the over-arching value.
These six values, with love as the over-arching value, underpin daily life at Newton Ferrers C of E Primary School. They encompass characteristics that we all aim to foster and they are celebrated by both children and staff. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
We also promote British Values throughout school life to prepare children for their role in society. Using democracy through fair voting systems and promoting diversity and acceptance in all areas of the school day from class time to play and lunchtimes. Staff role model these values and support children in learning about individual liberty, the rule of law and mutual respect.
As a small village school, at Newton Ferrers we are able to celebrate each pupil’s uniqueness. We aim to create a safe and stimulating environment whereby our children experience challenging, creative and exciting learning opportunities; raising our communities’ aspirations for all. Pupils learn of their place in their rural and coastal setting and comparatively the wider world.
We aim to strengthen our community and church links for the benefit of all.
Our unique outdoor environment including an enhanced play area, pond and forest school, enables children to explore their physical and social capabilities. Our indoor learning environment challenges pupil’s personal academic growth and aims to promote a love of learning. Our Christian distinctiveness is based upon our school values encompasses by an ethos of love – Collaboration, Confidence, Peace, Creativity, Respect and Perseverance which underpins how we aim to nurture the whole child’s personal growth whilst striving to Flourish, Aspire and Achieve academically.
Children are inspired and enthused to achieve their full potential in a stimulating, caring and supportive environment. We are a learning community, building on success. Our children are enabled to meet life's challenges with confidence, becoming valued and respected members of society. We share our god given gifts through the concept of 'service' and 'personal responsibility' to improve and support our school, local community, country and the world that we are all a part of.
