Wroughton Infant School

Vision and Values

Vision

When pupils join our community of learners, they are at a critical stage in their development as young people. Each child brings with them a unique and complex web of skills and needs. As passionate educators, we seek to enhance these skills and respond to these needs so that they feel confident in aspiring to a positive future. We strongly believe that whilst in our care, every child deserves the opportunity to realise their fullest potential. By promoting an environment which seeks to remove barriers to learning and nurture individuals, we encourage the very best from our pupils. Wroughton Infant School is committed to helping children recognise and develop their many talents and, at all times, be ‘Proud to Belong’.

Aims of our School

Our aim is to provide a safe, caring and inspirational environment conducive to learning.

  • Where all adults work in close collaboration to ensure that children are happy, safe and can achieve.
  • Where learning is recognised as a valued and lifelong experience.
  • Where every child is recognised and valued as an individual.
  • Where the learning and developmental experience is stimulating and varied, memorable and meaningful.
  • Where children develop a sense of self-worth through their confidence, creativity, social skills and interests.
  • Where children are encouraged to develop their intellect and academic potential.
  • Where children are encouraged to reflect on their accountabilities as learners and have ownership of the process.
  • Where an awareness of citizenship and their role within the local and wider communities is fostered in each child.
  • Where parents, staff, pupils and governors are justifiably proud of the children and the school.

Values

At Wroughton Infant School, we want to ensure that no child is left behind and that the unique identity of both schools are protected, celebrated and valued for the contribution they make to ensuring children have the best education and experiences.

We passionately believe that by working together, the children are able to have a higher quality of education and that both schools will benefit from and reap the rewards of a values based organisation where no child is left behind.

British Values

At Wroughton we centre children’s education around not only their academic progress but their progress as individual people and citizens. We offer a wide range of experiences and activities that, combined with our general school policies, promote each child’s personal development of the core values needed to be a successful and valuable member of our society. We will:

  • enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England
  • encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely
  • enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England
  • further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation for and respect for their own and other cultures
  • encourage respect for other people, and
  • encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England
  • encourage respect for other people, paying particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.

We believe in educating the children in our care to be good citizens and to develop the skills they need to have a successful and productive life.

We provide a broad and balanced PSHE, Citizenship, RE and SMSC curriculum which explicitly teaches the children the importance of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths.
