Parklands Community Primary School Values

At Parklands, we teach children to become successful, independent learners for life and the following core values are the foundations which underpin our school curriculum.

Independence – Autumn 1

We take responsibility for our own learning.

This means we will:

  • be self-motivated but know when to seek help
  • think deeply and work hard
  • take the initiative to solve problems.

Cooperation – Autumn 2

We will be active learners who engage and take part in all learning activities.

This means we will all:

  • take responsibility and ownership of our role within the group
  • actively listen and value the opinions of my peers
  • collaborate together to achieve a final goal.

Respect – Spring 1

We are respectful towards all people and property. We are tolerant, caring and considerate at all times.

This means we will all:

  • listen to others considering their views, feelings and opinions
  • look after our resources and the environment
  • appreciate our differences and show empathy.

Responsibility – Spring 2

We will take ownership and be accountable for our learning and behaviour.

This means we will all:

  • follow instructions to aim high and be the best we can.
  • be responsible for our own actions
  • accepting that we are in charge of our destiny.

Resilience – Summer 1

We will learn from our mistakes and persevere when challenges occur.

This means we will:

  • understand how to overcome barriers at home and in school using our relevant skills
  • value mistakes and use them as a learning platform to be inquisitive and have a positive attitude to learning
  • keep on trying, even when it is hard, by supporting and motivating ourselves and others.

Ambition – Summer 2

We will strive to do our best and have high expectations for ourselves and others.

This means we will:

  • take time to understand the opportunities that the world has to offer
  • aspire to work hard in school to give us the best opportunities for our future
  • learn the necessary skills and support one another to achieve individual goals.
