Our Vision and Values

The Crescent Primary School is a values-based school because we believe in developing a set of skills and attitudes that prepare our children for the modern day world. Our children are guided by a set of school values that were chosen by parents, teachers and governors. These represent 6 values that the whole school community chose to be central to the education of our children:

Responsibility   Respect   Determination   Kindness   Honesty   Creativity

Our children then designed a character for each of our school values, and through some computer wizardry, they were graphically reproduced below:

 

all

Our school values are displayed prominently around the school, as well as in each classroom. They weave into the fabric of school life and provide a mirror for our decision-making. For example, are my actions respectful? Are they kind?

They provide a guide and a moral compass for our children’s actions and behaviour. In making choices about how to act and how to behave, children have become familiar with and guided by our school values.

We celebrate our values!

Each day, we acknowledge children who show our values. Values slips given out to acknowledge positive behaviour choices that our children make.

We also have Values Assemblies each week, which teach children about a chosen value, and Values Star of the Week certificates awarded to a child in each class every Friday.

The Pioneer Academy Vision

We put children first, pioneering excellence and championing each and every child. Safe - Happy - Learning

Educational Principles

The following principles, laid out by The Pioneer Academy are tried and tested in all of its schools and have been recognised as being highly successful by Ofsted.  These principles underpin The Pioneer Trust Mantra which promotes success for children and guarantees improved outcomes.

  • Promoting and achieving excellence - to inspire children and adults to achieve the extraordinary in dynamic learning environments that foster the development of independent learning.  Working in partnership across The Pioneer Academy to provide innovative opportunities for staff and children to raise aspirations
  • Recognising the importance of outstanding teaching and learning - to develop leaders of learning, create the reality and sustain high quality educational experiences and raise the self- esteem of all children enabling them to contribute positively to society
  • Actively encouraging creativity and innovation - giving opportunities for risk taking and the exploration of new knowledge and concepts to grow a ‘can do’ and ‘no excuses’ learning culture
  • Consistent high standards of behaviour and attendance - role modelled by all staff to shape the ethos and values of the school, support learning and promote achievement
  • Equality and diversity - to gain mutual respect through an understanding of the key values of justice and equality

This will be achieved by:

  • Securing outstanding leadership at all levels within the school and across The Trust
  • Developing excellent governance and strategic planning, including legal, promotional and financial management
  • Appointing and developing highly qualified, excellent Teachers, administrative and learning support staff
  • Establishing a regular forum for children and families to discuss views with school leaders and governors, contributing to our journey to excellence
