Aims and purposes of learning in our schools.
- Provide all our children with a safe and happy school in which learning is valued as an enjoyable experience.
- Provide a stimulating and well resourced environment so that high standards can be reached.
- Offer children an environment where they are able to be healthy and have a good sense of well being, promoted through all aspects of the curriculum as well as designated programmes.
- Create an environment where children appreciate the satisfaction to be gained from attending school regularly, hard work, persistence, and personal and class and whole school achievement.
- Help children to further develop moral values, and the confidence to make considered decisions, developing habits of self-discipline and acceptable behaviour.
- Help children develop the social skills and empathy required to establish good relationships with other children and adults, in work and play situations, working co-operatively together
- Work with children to develop an awareness of self, sensitivity and tolerance towards others, respecting and appreciating each other's feelings, views and capabilities.
- Encourage a sense of community within the school, which promotes mutual responsibility, further developed by involvement in the wider community.
- Encourage children to extend their range of interests and natural enthusiasm, allowing them to develop as individuals, with confidence and self-esteem.
- Nurture the partnership role between Governors, School, and Home believing that close co-operation between these parties is for the absolute benefit of the children for whom we are jointly responsible.
Inclusive – Imaginative – Innovative
Our logo was designed with our vision in mind. We are proud that it reflects the Saltergate ethos. Take a close look – it can be viewed in so many ways.
· The ‘gate’ remains - it’s a piece of our history
· The ‘gate’ also represents children holding hands - our vision for being ‘as one’
· The image of the children is also our three ‘I’ words – inclusive, imaginative and innovative
We live by our strengths
- Inclusive – everyone counts – everyone is equal and our commitment is to each and every child
- Imaginative – in a changing world, we work hard to bring new opportunities in the most creative ways to prepare our children for their future
- Innovative – we lead the way with our trailblazing plans, offering children unique experiences to enhance their early and primary years – only the best is good enough for Saltergate children.
