Stithians Community Primary School Ethos and Vision

The school's governors are responsible for ensuring the school has a clear ethos, vision and strategic direction.  In order to do this we have adopted an ethos which will guide all strategy and activity in the school.  We have developed this ethos in consultation with the Senior Leadership Team and have consulted on it with the staff, children, parents and wider community.

        Our ethos is to develop:

       Inspiration

             Understanding

Value

             Responsibility

 

Our vision, strategy and actions will be guided by our ethos. Being motivated and guided by our ethos means that we will achieve a greater sense of meaning in our school life.

 

Our school vision for the next three to five years is:

Inspiration: We will ensure our teaching inspires our children to learn and create positive relationships that will last lifetimes.

·        We will use recruitment and development opportunities to build inspirational teaching. 

·        We will create an inspiring, broad and balanced curriculum across the school to embed motivation and ambition for life-long learning. 

We will measure this through surveys and engagement with the curriculum.

Understanding: Our children will build their understanding of their local place and environment, and their impact on the wider world. 

·        At our school children will learn how they can improve their lives and make a difference in the world.

We will measure this by looking at how our Pupil Voice develops over this time.

Value: Every individual in our school community is valued for who they are and shows that they value each other. 

·        We will celebrate children's and staff achievements and develop a tangible way in which we can demonstrate appreciation of their efforts.

We will measure this by talking to groups of children, staff retention levels and staff well-being survey

Responsibility: We will encourage responsible learning.

·        Children will be encouraged to be resilient in their learning, to take responsibility for their efforts; to be ambitious and to achieve their potential regardless of starting point.

·        Staff will take responsibility for providing excellent teaching across the whole curriculum.

We will measure this by monitoring progress against national targets

 

Our vision feeds into our School Development Plan which will provide the strategy and activities to achieve the vision.
