Bere Alston Primary Academy
Vision and Values
At Bere Alston Primary Academy, we are embarking on a new journey with First Federation Trust. We have very recently consulted with the children, parents/ carers/, staff, governors and volunteers from the local community, and have agreed a set of new school values that reflect what we all aspire to for the children at Bere Alston Primary School.
We all pride ourselves in working together to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children. Our new school values of ‘Teamwork, Perseverance, Curiosity, Respect, Kindness, and Confidence’ are now a key focus. Working together on this project demonstrated how successful working collaboratively can be. These new values underpin our curriculum and we are passionate about promoting them through all that we offer.
As a village school in a close-knit community, we are committed to celebrating traditions and our beautiful locality. We also recognise the importance of learning about national and global issues and we do this in an age appropriate way so that the learning is meaningful.
We strongly believe in the importance of providing children with a range of rich learning opportunities and experiences, both in our local environment but also further afield. These opportunities promote enjoyment and engagement, whilst encouraging children to be curious to find out more. They also help to build aspirations for the future.
At Bere Alston Primary School we aim to nurture our children to become independent, healthy, tolerant individuals, who demonstrate consideration and respect for others. Compassion and ‘giving back’ is important; we do this is in a range of ways.
We all value the importance of perseverance in the face of challenge and we promote and model positive learning behaviours. Growing in confidence is also a focus. The children are encouraged to share their ideas with others and to speak out about what matters to them.
This is a shared responsibility and vision which involves children, staff, parents/carers, governors and the wider community.
