The values of the former Infant and Junior Schools are below for your perusal.
Whitefriars Infant School
~ Educating, Caring and Inspiring ~
Whitefriars Infant School considers spiritual, moral, social and cultural development to be crucial for individual pupils and for society as a whole. It sees it as the heart of what education is all about - helping pupils grow and develop as people. At Whitefriars Infant School we strive to create a learning environment which promotes respect, diversity and self- awareness and equips all of our pupils with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values they will need to succeed in their future lives.
Junior School Mission Statement
Whitefriars Junior School seeks to develop the full potential of each child in its care, within a Christian community, growing in an awareness of the interdependence of its members - children, parents, governors, staff, and others.
In pursuing our primary purpose of educating children, we strive in all our work to affirm one another, children and staff alike.
Consideration for others.
We aim to promote a moral outlook which engenders self-esteem and respect for the individual.
We encourage a spirit of co-operation and provide occasions for children to take responsibility for the care of others and contribute to their environment. They are given opportunities to act independently in order to promote the qualities of leadership and self reliance.
We aim to provide a challenging, broad-based education, encompassing the National Curriculum. We respect children’s individuality and do our best to develop their talents as well as our own.
We aim to work for a happy, caring, stimulating and safe environment in which all those, pupils and staff alike, engaged in the teaching/learning process can see their positive qualities recognised.
the pursuit of Excellence for all.’
The way we all treat each other and our standards of expectation and behaviour spring from the belief that the very best is to be found in ourselves as well as others.
