Ethos and Values
Because we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we have become a wiser, more inclusive school. Diversity is about all of us, and about us having to find a way to walk through this world together.
We provide our pupils with the skills, empathy and integrity needed to thrive in our vibrant and ever-changing society.
At Hugh Gaitskell Primary School, our children are inquisitive, imaginative and ambitious. We teach them to debate, compromise, and think creatively. They are confident learners and articulate speakers who stand up for equality and fairness. We nurture pupils and empower them to use their initiative, take risks, be self-sufficient and self-motivated. Our children are enthusiastic about the community they live in. They have a voice- they are powerful and they are strong.
We raise aspirations, open children’s eyes to both their immediate environment and the world beyond and we enable our children to live happy, healthy and productive lives. We do this by supporting, nurturing and inspiring our children through quality-first teaching strategies and providing a wealth of opportunities to enrich their life experiences.
By working with our families, we create an inspirational environment where everyone is valued and successes are celebrated.
Together we will make the world a better place
Every child deserves a champion:
an adult who will not give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.
Alongside parents, we are that champion.
And it doesn’t matter how much it takes, how easy or hard it might be because our passion is to champion every child that comes here.
We are their cheerleaders, their coaches, their biggest fans.
Our children live in a diverse world, a more connected world where they will meet people from all over the globe and speak different languages.
That world lives in our school.
We champion that diversity, we celebrate it, because it makes us all richer through new experiences, new adventures, new friends,
but it also teaches tolerance, understanding and respect.
One world, one school.
Our children will have a voice and they will become the champions of others, their community and their world.
They will make the world a better place.
They will say:
I have things to do, people to impress and places to go.
I will be a better person when I leave-
I am powerful and I am strong.
