Our values - Our vision
Our vision is underpinned by an agreement between staff, Governors and members of the PTA who worked closely together to think about what we want for our children:
At Bawtry Mayflower this means that children develop the knowledge and skills to enable them to access their next stage of education and begin their journey to being good citizens. They do this in an environment which enables them to feel safe and secure; with strong trusting relationships with the adults and children around them.
We support children to foster lifelong learning skills through our Learning Powers which challenge children to:
We are committed to provide:
a welcoming, stimulating and safe learning environment
a broad, balanced curriculum which reflects the needs of our children
high expectations of our children AND ourselves
a range of resources that are used effectively to support learning
equal access to all areas of the curriculum and school life
support, guidance and relevant training for all who work with our children
links with our local community
Statement of British Values
The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
At Bawtry Mayflower Primary School we value the diversity and differences of all our pupils and celebrate this through our culture, ethos and the respectful relationships we promote. Our values are evident in and promoted through our school curriculum and our school learning powers:
- Be collaborative;
- Be courageous;
- Be determined;
- Be responsible.
Remembrance Day is commemorated annually and the children in Year 6 lead KS1 and KS2 in an act of remembrance. Significant National events such as the Royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Golden Jubilee and the Olympic Games were all celebrated in school. Within our curriculum children learn about the lives of some significant people and events in British history. We have very close links with the Church community in Bawtry and the whole school visits Church for special services at Christmas, Easter and harvest.
