We wish that children in this school:
Enjoy education and perceive it as a lifelong process.
Achieve their maximum potential in all areas of the curriculum and school life.
Develop the attitude, understanding and skills necessary to exercise independence and initiative.
Develop lively, enquiring minds with the ability to question and reason.
Begin to appreciate the wide range of cultures and beliefs in the world and through this to develop the qualities of respect and tolerance.
Develop high standards of behaviour and a courteous manner.
Are encouraged to reflect on issues relating to their life and welfare, now and in the future.
To further these aims, it is the intent of staff and governors to maintain a school community where relationships between children, parents and staff are based on mutual trust and respect.
The school is committed to further raising standards of achievement for all pupils.
The aims of Gobowen Primary School have been discussed and agreed by staff and governors.
The school has adopted a positive approach to the management of pupils’ behaviour. In general, we believe that children should be praised for their efforts and achievements, as well as being given responsibilities commensurate with their age and development. This will create an atmosphere in which children know they are valued as individuals within a school that cares.
From September 2012, schools are required to publish online information about the use of their Pupil Premium. The Pupil Premium is specific, additional funding provided to support the education of pupils known to be eligible for Free School Meals, children in public care (Looked After Children) and children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces.
