Ethos and Values
We treat everyone with love and mutual respect.
We persevere, we challenge ourselves, we try our best.
We know our children as individuals.
"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."
Every child will experience a rich, aspirational curriculum that stimulates their curiosity, broadens their perceptions of the world and creates a thirst for learning.
They will be respectful, kind and responsible individuals who try their best through challenge and perseverance.
Welford and Wickham School Prayer
Bless our school
It is a special place to us
Keep us safe from harm here
Help us to care for one another here
Though we may stumble along the way
Guide us as we learn to learn and learn to love
Lord, make this school your home too
First and foremost, we are a school where everyone delivers the very best of what they have to offer, so that every child can be the best that they can be. We believe that children should take a lead in how they learn and have ownership of how their school is shaped on a daily basis:
'Teachers should see learning through the eyes of the children ... and children should see themselves as their own teachers'
John Hattie - Visible Learning 2009
As a Voluntary aided Church of England School we uphold our core Christian Values of love and mutual respect. We also explore other Christian values, such as tolerance, perseverance, courage, friendship, justice and forgiveness through collective worship with the whole school. Our Key Stage 2 Worship Team, take the lead in planning and delivering themes to the children in assembly time. Within our teaching of these values we also incorporate the teaching and understanding of British Values - democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty, by electing House Captains and School Eco Council members, having very clear rules for the children to follow and ensuring that children understand that they have rights and responsibilities within our school community and beyond.
