Vision and Values
At Newlands Community Primary School we all ‘Shine Bright’
We hold our heads high and look towards the brightest of futures.
We have pride in ourselves; we ensure that our academic learning, physical health and mental wellbeing secure the highest levels of success for all.
We have pride in our school; we believe in our school and look outwards to find the best opportunities to support our children.
We have pride in our community; we care for one another as well as the world around us. We are inclusive, tolerant, respectful and welcoming to all.
We serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality, with exceptional experiences for every pupil, every day. This will be achieved by providing an exciting learning environment, which fosters a real love of learning and inspires our pupils to become confident, caring and responsible individuals who exemplify our school values.
Values-based Education is a philosophy which underpins all of our thoughts and actions. It creates a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and develops students' social and relationship skills that last throughout their lives. The positive learning environment is achieved through the positive values modelled by staff throughout the school. It quickly liberates teachers and students from the stress of confrontational relationships, which frees up substantial teaching and learning time. It also provides social capacity to students, equipping them with social and relationship skills, intelligences and attitudes to succeed at school and throughout their lives.
