Ethos and Values
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions any parent has to undertake. At Coston Primary School we believe passionately in providing the correct blend of academic challenge, moral development and enrichment that allows for the holistic development of each child in our care. Your child is as special to us as they are to you and our aim is not to limit, but rather liberate, their potential.
At Coston Primary School the children are at the centre of all decision making and our priority is to deliver high quality teaching and learning whilst at the same time providing rich and truly enjoyable learning experiences for all children.
We believe passionately in the importance of recognising every pupil as a unique individual, each with their own gifts and talents. Our work as teachers begins by building upon the numerous skills you have fostered in your child at home. It is our aim to develop a successful partnership with you so that your child is given every possible opportunity to flourish.
We want every child to be successful; to reach for success from the very first day they join us and throughout their school lives so that when they leave us, they have a love of learning for the rest of their lives.
At Coston Primary School we will strive to:-
- Provide a secure and stimulating environment that will provide all children the opportunity to reach their full potential;
- Have regard and respect for the experiences, knowledge and cultural diversity that every child brings to school;
- Value the achievements of all children, both in and out of school and provide opportunities to develop self-confidence and a positive self image;
- Provide a supportive culture in which all staff are encouraged to extend, develop and share their expertise;
- Ensure that issues of equal opportunities are considered in all our work;
- Provide a curriculum based on the National Curriculum and Foundation Stage Curriculum that is broad, balanced, relevant, progressive and appropriately differentiated;
- Offer all children equal access to the curriculum and school life in the community where individual differences are appreciated, celebrated, understood and accepted;
- Encourage children to become good citizens, by developing caring attitudes and respect towards themselves, other children, adults, their school and their community;
- Recognise that children are constantly developing and ensure that the curriculum offered to them is appropriate to that development;
- Encourage each individual to take responsibility for his/her behaviour and to act as a good role model to others.
