Vision, Aims and Values
The aims, values and vision below have been written by the children, parents, governors and staff. We believe that a shared set of beliefs will ensure that all stakeholders join forces to ensure progression in all areas.
"Learning to Grow: Growing to Learn."
At Ormesby Village Infant and Junior Schools Federation we have a clear vision for the future. It is our vision that our Federation of schools will continue to be a nurturing environment underpinned by strong morals and British values. Embedded throughout our school from our logo to our playground, we are a family community where each child is treated as an individual, and the strongest and most exciting teaching helps them to discover and develop their unique talents and abilities.
We want each child to be happy, self-confident and fulfilled as individuals, as members of our school and as citizens of their home communities and the wider world. We want them to know that they are loved and valued and that they have voices which need to be heard and opinions that matter and will be sought. We want them to flourish in an atmosphere which respects and cherishes their uniqueness. We want them to love learning and to know that they are starting out on a journey full of excitement and possibilities which can last all their lives long.
We want them to find out who they are and what they are worth. Above all we want to make a difference to their lives so that they in turn can make a difference to the world in which they live. It is our privilege to send our children on to the next stage of their learning journey filled with a spirit of adventure, accomplishment and aspiration and the confidence to take actions and become the best that they can be!
The aim of Ormesby Village Infant & Junior Schools Federation is for every member of the school community to feel valued and respected, and for all persons to be treated fairly. We are a caring community, whose values are built on ethical and moral teaching and lead us to build a caring family. Our school aims to promote an environment where all feel happy, safe and secure. At our Infant school, all stakeholders are always learning to grow: growing to learn as they develop how they interact, learn and play together. At our Junior school, everyone aspires to be the best they can be, everyone acquires the knowledge and skills to be a valuable future citizen of the world and everyone achieves success from the many opportunities they are provided with no matter what their starting points.
By the time a child leaves Ormesby Village Infant and Junior Schools Federation they will have:
- Become a valued member of a diverse and accepting community;
- Experienced a rich and varied curriculum;
- Made progress in order to be the best they can be,
- Gained the skills needed to become a life-long learner,
- Celebrated success and been celebrated.
Our stakeholders at Ormesby Village Infant and Junior Schools Federation have decided upon the following set of core values (although we regularly include others) that underpin everything we do. These values will guide the children and adults through periods of change and development on our journey to being the best we can be.
Our Pledge to Flourish
We pledge to help everyone be the best that they can be and come to school every day with a smile.
