Jotmans Hall will encourage children to strive for excellence in all aspects of their academic, personal and social development, in order to contribute positively to society.
To attain this, the whole school community will work together to achieve and maintain the right to learn in a safe environment with mutual respect for others.
All children should:
· Learn from a curriculum that is broad and balanced, as well as stimulating, effective and challenging.
· Have their work and contribution to the school recognised and valued.
· Have the right to enjoy and learn from a curriculum that fosters equal opportunities.
· Be encouraged to develop a sense of citizenship through learning about their own religion and culture, and through learning about those of others.
· Be helped to have respect for themselves and their environment and to develop respect for, and responsibility towards others in school and in the wider community.
As a school we also aim to:
Involve parents as partners in their child’s education and to foster links between school, home and the local community.
Through our teaching we aim to:
· enable children to become confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners;
· foster children’s self-esteem and help them build positive relationships with other people;
· develop children’s self-respect and encourage children to respect the ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others;
· show respect for all cultures and, in so doing, to promote positive attitudes towards other people;
· enable children to understand their community and help them feel valued as part of this community;
· help children grow into reliable, independent and positive citizens.
