At Newlands Community Primary School we strongly believe that a happy, productive and successful school relies on core agreed values and high expectations of behaviour. Pupils are encouraged to be independent in making choices and are sensitively guided when problems arise. All achievements are celebrated and all pupils are made to feel valued. ‘Values are principles that drive behaviour. They influence our actions and attitudes, and become our framework for living. They influence our relationship with ourselves and others’ (Neil Hawkes - Values-based Education Limited).
Through promoting agreed core values, we aim to develop a positive learning culture and positive behaviour within the classroom, where pupils are enthusiastic and inspired to learn. The school aims to provide a caring, supportive, structured environment where children learn respect and kindness, independence, responsibility and become increasingly self-regulating.
Please do come and talk to any of us at Newlands if you have any further questions. Mrs Cooling and Mrs Henly are always around on the gates at the start and end of each day and class teachers are always available at the end of the day.
