BalksburyInfant SchoolWhere Care, Co-Operation and Challenge Really Count

Welcome toBalksburyInfant SchoolWhere Care, Co-Operation and Challenge Really Count

Vision and Values

Balksbury Federation Vision

 

 

At Balksbury Federation, we believe that education is a powerful gift and is ours to give.  We are committed to delivering inspirational teaching that develops well rounded and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential.

 

Throughout the federation, we respect and value each child.  Providing a safe, secure and welcoming learning environment, we will ensure that children gain a wealth of educational experiences as they move on their journey from Year R to Year 6.

 

 

Balksbury Federation Learning Values

 

Our federated learning values have been chosen because we believe they are at the heart of all that we do and are instrumental in the education of our children.

 

Perseverance

Within our learning environment we teach our children to persevere in doing something, despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. In the words of Stephen Hawking, we want our children to:

 

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.

 

Our children are encouraged to welcome challenge and have self-belief.  We want them to say:

 

I may not be there yet but I am closer than I was yesterday.’

 

Respect

We strongly believe that respect is a two way process and this is built into our Code of Conduct.   It is vital that our children embrace respect of differences and, other people’s views and opinions.  It is our belief that respect distinguishes from right and wrong, values all, and is a vital moral component of our federated community.

 

Collaboration

We strongly believe that by working together with others, children are enabled to solve future problems. Our curriculum fosters opportunities for children to collaborate.  Through this, children build self esteem, positive attitudes and see others’ point of view.

 

Our Motto

Learning and Growing Together
