At Nine Acres Primary School, we want every member of the school community to Positively Influence the world around them and their future success through being Articulate, Passionate and Persuasive individuals.
We want all pupils and staff to feel valued and respected every day and our aim is to make sure everyone is treated fairly and with dignity. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust, respect for all and with a clear focus on developing important life skills.
At Nine Acres, we want an environment where everyone feels safe and secure; where all of our learners show, through their actions, how to be positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.
Nine Acres values are not used for a reward system, they are embedded in everything we do.
In all areas of school life, we want all children to:
- Show their passion and love for learning, new experiences and new adventures
- Be articulate in order to share their views and opinions and to state how their learning makes them feel and act as responsible citizens
- Use their persuasive skills in order to debate, to have meaningful conversations and to make things happen!
- Positively influence their own lives by making decisions that will ensure they continue to make progress and be successful in school and beyond.
How our Values are Celebrated!
In every classroom and around school, our values are clearly displayed and are regularly referred to throughout the day by staff and children.
Each week, a pupil from each class will be awarded with one of our values certificates in recognition for upholding one of our schools values. How that value was demonstrated is shared with everyone so they can learn from one another.
Each half term, a pupil from each class will also be awarded with a 'Values Badge' that they can proudly display on their school lanyard.
