Values and Ethos
Statement of Intent
The pupils at Greenlands are easily distinguished by the personal qualities they present. They are happy, articulate and hard-working children who celebrate their own uniqueness and that of others. At Greenlands Community Primary School, our aim is to achieve the highest possible standards for all pupils; we aspire to ensure every pupil experiences opportunities to develop as independent, resilient and collaborative learners. Not only will they be equipped with the skills necessary to become successful, moral adults who live a healthy lifestyle, they will have the confidence, knowledge and passion to follow their dreams. Within school, we care deeply about the whole child and their emotional health and we believe that childhood should be a happy and investigative time, where there are no limits to curiosity. Staff and pupils have a thirst for new experiences and knowledge and we consider curiosity to be the engine of achievement. With this in mind, at the heart of our bespoke and child-centred curriculum, are questions designed to nurture the children’s natural inquisitiveness and ignite a love of lifelong learning.
Permeating our curriculum are our core values of respect, compassion, trust, resilience, perseverance and ambition. We recognise that parental and community involvement is an integral part of our curriculum and that these values can but be strengthened through collaboration with the parents and carers of the pupils at our school. By knowing our pupils well, every child, regardless of their circumstances, are supported to achieve the very best of their potential in all aspects of the curriculum.
