Vision & Values
“The Best That We Can Be”
At Devonshire Primary Academy we regard each of the children in our care as special and unique individuals.
We recognise the entitlement of every child to have full access to a broad, balanced and enriching curriculum, irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, religion or particular needs; a curriculum that provides the stepping stones for a successful life for every child.
We aim to provide quality learning experiences within a happy, purposeful, stimulating environment, where each child is encouraged to continually strive to improve and be inspired to fulfil his or her potential.
Our aim is to develop the ‘Whole Child’ intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. We strive to foster a caring family atmosphere, where each child’s needs are taken into consideration.
We encourage the development of self-esteem and self-discipline where children take responsibility for their actions and we expect high standards of behaviour and respect for other people and their possessions.
We are committed to ensuring that every pupil leaves our Academy with high aspirations, an enduring enthusiasm for learning and the confidence to address the world on their own terms.
At Devonshire Primary Academy, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Values are intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school.
The whole staff team, parents and pupils are involved in promoting our School Values, which are:
Resilience, Respect, Pride, Integrity, Cooperation, Honesty
Through our School Values we aim to:
- Improve behaviour, conduct and self-confidence by developing strong values within our pupils.
- Develop pupils understanding of what values are and why they are important in life.
- Encourage children to ‘live the values’ in all aspects of their lives both in school and out.
- Promote values to pupils in every aspect of school life.
- Promote values in the way in which adults interact with each other and with pupils.
- Display our school values and encourage all visitors to take account of them in their time in the school.
- Encourage parents to support the programme at home by promoting the value through Star Assemblies and newsletters.
- Enable children to focus upon the positive aspects of themselves that they can value, thereby reminding them of their individual worth, their worth in the school and wider communities and the worth of those communities themselves.
- To raise standards by promoting a school ethos that is underpinned by core values which support the development of the whole child as a reflective learner within a calm, caring, happy and purposeful atmosphere.
