Ethos and Values

Ethos and Values

We are focused on giving every child the best teaching, environment, experiences and opportunities.
We are preparing children for life.
Our school values 'courage', 'collective responsibility', 'equality and inclusion' and a 'hard work' ethic.
We strive to work in an atmosphere of mutual respect for all.
We rely on parents taking an active interest in what their children do at school, helping them read, helping them to learn spellings and support homework. Above all, we rely on parents making sure our children get to bed on time, making sure children have a proper breakfast and make school important.

The children have a voice through our School Council which has achieved the Gold Standard mark from the local authority. The PTA is more than just a fund raising body, it helps us develop the school.

The safety and welfare of children is our first priority. No-one works at the school without demonstrating they are safe to work with children; all staff have child protection training, all staff have first aid training. We have filtered internet access, we carry out termly reviews of the safety of our site, our equipment is checked annually and no trips or activities take place without risk assessments being completed. 
At Nanstallon School we strive to:
 
  • Aspire to excellence in everything that we do.
  • Have a curriculum which encompasses our local culture and the wider world.
  • Have a curriculum that equips children with basic skills whilst developing creativity and curiosity.
  • Embrace new opportunities.
  • Provide an environment where children feel confident, safe, secure and are cared for and valued.
 
 
  • Recognise and celebrate effort, hard work and achievement.
  • Value both cooperation and competition.
  • Maintain a clear system of rules and strategies that are consistent throughout the school.
  • Promote a healthy and active lifestyle and care for our environment.
  • Promote and maintain good working partnerships in school, with parents and the wider community.
