Core Values and School Ethos

At South Borough Primary School we strive for excellence for every child and they are at the centre of all we do. We aim, through our core values to instil a sense of pride, tolerance, determination, perseverance and support to help them have high aspirations in all aspects of life. We give children the opportunity to experience the joy of discovering new skills, whilst being creative, developing self-confidence and thus mature emotionally and socially as young citizens.

The aim of the South Borough Primary School core values is to ensure all children understand what is expected of them, inside and outside of school and to give them a visual reminder of what they can do to make South Borough Primary School a happy, safe and positive place to learn.  The core values allow children to develop skills to ‘learn how to learn things they do not yet know’.

The core values are for children to show:

  • Self-reflection
  • Bravery
  • Perseverance
  • Support

Children need to be taught and to learn how to behave appropriately. They need to know that mistakes can be made and learned from. Our success is measured not by the absence of problems but by the way in which we deal with them.

Each class will display the core values in their classroom on a display like this:

   

Stickers with these words on will be awarded to children who are showing the Core Values – Self-reflection, Bravery, Perseverance, Support.
