Ethos and Values

A Place with Children at the Centre

We aspire for the children at Park to: 

Feel Safe to Take Risks and Learn from Mistakes: We believe that true learning occurs when children have the confidence to take risks, make mistakes, and learn from them. Our school is a safe space where exploration and growth are encouraged. 

Enjoy Coming to School: We strive to create an engaging and joyful learning environment where children look forward to each school day with excitement and anticipation. 

Be Enthusiastic About Learning: We aim to ignite a lifelong passion for learning in our students, fostering curiosity and enthusiasm for acquiring and use the knowledge they have learned. 

Develop a Sense of Pride and Self-Esteem: Our students will develop a strong sense of pride in themselves, their community, and each other. We endeavour to nurture their self-esteem by regularly celebrating their individuality and accomplishments. 

Be Accepting, Tolerant, and Non-Judgmental: We teach our children the values of acceptance, tolerance, and open-mindedness so that they learn to embrace diversity, respect different cultures and beliefs, and become non-judgmental citizens of the world. 

Embed Integrity and Moral Compass: Integrity is at the core of our education. We guide our students in developing a strong moral compass, helping them to make ethical decisions as the grow and mature. 

Be Effective Communicators: Through cooperative learning and active listening, our students become proficient communicators, capable of expressing themselves and understanding others effectively. 

Create a Culture of Kindness: We foster a culture of kindness towards others and oneself by embedding empathy, compassion, and humility into daily interactions. 

Build an Environment of Trust and Respect: Our school is founded on principles of trust and respect, where every individual feels valued, heard, and appreciated. 

Foster a Collaborative, Inclusive, and Diverse Community: We strive to create a diverse and inclusive community where children are not only accepted but celebrated for their uniqueness. We believe that a diverse environment enriches our learning experiences. 

Commit to Effective Partnerships: We are committed to working closely with parents, carers and governors, recognising that the education of our children is a collaborative effort that requires the involvement of the entire community and beyond. 

We are dedicated to realising this vision, shaping our students into well-rounded, compassionate, and empowered individuals who are equipped to thrive in an ever-changing world. Together, we build a brighter future for our children and our community.
