Gosbecks School Values
Gosbecks School values all people within and connected with it.
A School Values Working Party was established in December 2001. This featured a consultation process involving: children, parents, governors, learning support assistants and non-teaching staff. After collating all feedback it was evident Gosbecks School values:
• respect for the individual;
• communicating with each other;
• joining together with the wider community;
• the best from teaching and learning;
• celebrating success;
• a safe and exciting learning environment.
These values reflect our approach to all aspects of school life.
