Vision & Values
“Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners.” – Laurence Sterne
Our vision is simple. We want all children, no matter who they are, to achieve well. To ensure they do this, we use the 4 I’s to drive our thinking throughout our whole curriculum, and maintain focus on what we believe is so important for our children:
To be able to achieve this, we command RESPECT. This is the underpinning expectation for everything we do at Valley Park, and without excuse. This applies to pupils, staff, parents, governors and the wider community.
Within the core theme of respect, we model, teach and learn the 7 family values:
Resilience – Keep going and recover quickly
Empathy – Understand and share the feeling of others.
Self-Respect – Have pride and confidence in yourself.
Punctuality – Be on time.
Enthusiasm – Show excitement for learning and a thirst for knowledge
Character – Use your positive personal traits to guide your actions.
Talk – Share your thoughts and ideas with others.
