Vision, Aims and Values
At Felbridge Primary School, we aim to build a community with
challenge, curiosity, creativity, courage and compassion
at the heart of our school.
Through our five core values, we aim together to:
- develop a lifelong love for learning;
- be confident to try new things;
- have respect for others and ourselves;
- include, celebrate and nurture everyone;
- have joy and happiness at work and play;
- aspire to be the best we can be;
- live life to the full.
Each year we work towards specific actions outlined in our School Development Plan which is underpinned by the goals in our vision.
A summary of our current School Development Plan can be viewed or downloaded below once it has been approved each year.
In 2021-2022, we have five main areas which we are focusing on. In addition, each subject team also has their own plans which build out from the main plan, allowing us to keep building and improving our facilities, teaching practice and the experience our children receive.
Felbridge's vision and values as part of wider British values
All schools have a duty to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
At Felbridge, our chosen core values very much tie in with the core British values below, and all can be seen through the lens of our values and the ways we try to live them out. They are therefore embedded in the way we talk about and explore our values, although we may often talk about them explicitly in the context of school assemblies, PSHE lessons and circle time, or when discussing recent news and issues.
The Key Values are:
- rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
