Muscliff Ethos & Values: Our Mission Statement
Our Mission is to maximise the progress of all of our children so that they become positive, respecting, caring, competent citizens and lifelong learners.
Our aims are as described in the revised National Curriculum (2014).
Aim 1: The school offers a balanced and broadly based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
Aim 2: The school prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
To achieve our aims, we will:
* Strive to provide each child with a safe and well-managed school in which they feel secure, happy and well prepared for the challenges and opportunities that await them.
* Encourage each child as an individual to appreciate their own achievements and to increase their self-esteem.
We strive to ensure our children will:
We recognise the importance of children learning key values in life. Each month we focus on a different 'value', e.g. thoughtfulness, humility, trust, and through PSHE lessons, circle times and assemblies we discuss with the children how the value looks in every day life. We find examples of the children showing the values as they move, learn and play at school. In Good News Assemblies we celebrate a 'Values Champion' from each class every week.
There are five core values at the heart of the Muscliff ethos... represented by five Muscliff Mice. These are the house teams:
Caring Responsibility Courage Respect Resilience
The children can earn 'VIPs' (Values Incentive Points) for their behaviour around school; showing good Muscliff Manners. These are collected in a display outside the hall. The House with the most points at the end of the term has a reward, e.g House Mufti.
