Values and Ethos

Mission Statement

Wheatley Nursery School respects all children as individuals. We provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment which encourages children to value themselves and others by celebrating difference and diversity.

Our children will take with them a strong set of practical, educational, social and emotional life skills and a sense of personal achievement and pride in their school and community.

Values

ValueDescription (Currently Draft) 
PlayingChildren and adults playing together and alone. Following interest and developing learning through play.
InteractingModelling and Family Links ethos teaches children positive interactions and a sense of self. Families and other professionals interact to ensure the best possible outcomes. 
EngagingThe environment, curriculum, adults and other children are engaging and interesting. Learning is deep.

We will do this by: 

Staff will get to know children, find out how they learn best and adapt the curriculum to maximise their early learning experiences to provide foundations for life.

Governors will respond to national research and monitor and strategically plan for school development responding to the needs of the cohorts.

Parents will work in collaboration with the Nursery to support and develop their children as early learners in school and at home. Pupils will show enthusiasm and a love of learning and build strong relationships with staff and peers.
