Ethos & Values
At Stourport Primary Academy we strive to:
- Provide a secure and stimulating environment that is conducive to all children having the opportunity to reach their full potential
- Have regard and respect for the experiences, knowledge and cultural diversity that every child brings to our school and to use this as a foundation for improving standards and ensuring equal opportunities
- Value the achievements of all children, both inside and outside 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
- Provide an inspiring and engaging curriculum based on the National Curriculum and Foundation Stage Curriculum that has a clear intent and is implemented effectively for maximum impact
- Offer all children equal access to a broad, balanced, relevant and progressive curriculum that is carefully and meticulously planned and executed by talented staff. The curriculum recognises that children are individuals who are constantly developing and caters for every child
- Maximise every opportunity to incorporate a diverse range of learning opportunities to explore life beyond the classroom and provide a greater understanding of the world around us
- Encourage all children to become good citizens by developing caring attitudes and respect towards themselves, other children, adults, their school and the community. Individual differences are appreciated, accepted, celebrated, respected
- Encourage each individual to take responsibility for their own behaviour and to act as a good role model to others
The Department for Education has introduced a statutory duty for schools to promote British Values more actively and to ensure they are taught in schools. Stourport Primary Academy fully supports and endorses the DfE’s reinforcement of the need ‘to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs’.
Actively promoting the values means everyone challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. Stourport Primary Academy is committed to serving its community and we recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. Collectively, we understand the vital role we have ensuring that any member of our school community is not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
At Stourport Primary Academy, we are dedicated to preparing our children for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum, ensuring the we promote and reinforce British values with all our pupils. You can find out more on our Curriculum page in our School Policies.
