School Motto, Aims and Values
Pupils, parents, staff and governors were all consulted when agreeing the school motto, aims and core values for Whiteheath Junior School. Our motto, aims and values are at the core of everything we do.
At Whiteheath Junior School our motto is ‘Opportunity, Confidence, Growth’.
Our aims are based on the 3 key words in our motto. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
- Opportunity - providing a range of experiences to enable children to gain in-depth knowledge and learn valuable skills
- Confidence - encouraging self-belief and self-worth by recognizing the unique qualities of each child
- Growth - helping our children to develop into mature, well-rounded young people who are prepared for their future in an ever changing world
Underpinning the aims are our core values. These instill an understanding in pupils about what they need to do to be a good member of our school community. The values are based on 4 respects - ‘respect for learning’, ‘respect for myself’, ‘respect for others’ and ‘respect for the school’. They are based on our strong belief of what we want every child in the school to be.
