School Aims & Values

As staff and Governors of Sladefield Infant School, we believe that our School Aims fully outline our commitment to delivering the best possible education for the children and community we serve here at Sladefield.  By consistently working towards these aims, we all believe that our children will be best placed to achieve and succeed in all aspects of life.

 

  • To be an integral part of a caring community – a happy, secure place where children want to learn.

  • To give every child the opportunity to develop his/her potential in all areas of education, taking into account their needs and the needs of the school statutory requirements, by offering a broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum.

  • To instil respect for moral values, for other people and for themselves, and to encourage tolerance towards other races, religions and ways of life.

  • To help children develop enquiring minds, encouraging them to think for themselves and apply themselves to tasks.

  • To enable our children to be confident in communicating with others; to take pleasure in reading; to be motivated to write; to enjoy mathematical challenges.

  • To encourage and support our children to follow the Sladefield values.

  • To equip learners to be responsible citizens of Birmingham, Britain and the world, and celebrate what it is to be British in today’s society.

  • To instil the best possible behaviour in our pupils so that they can distinguish between right and wrong, and be law-abiding citizens 

 

Achievement of our aims is underpinned by the strong set of values Sladefield has set out and which we expect all of our children, staff and families to demonstrate each and every day at school:

 

  • enjoyment – doing things you like to do.

  • friendship – being with someone you like – my friend.

  • respect – to treat people in a kind, well-mannered way.

  • equality – everybody is treated the same.

  • caring – to look after someone or something.

  • trust – people can rely on you to do something.

  • community – a group of people who all believe in the same thing.

  • achievement – something I have done successfully.

  • commitment – a job people ask me to do properly.

  • responsibility – being trusted to take care of things.

  • excellence – outstanding work and behaviour.
