Values and Ethos
At Old Park Primary School we want to make a difference to the lives of our young people. We work hard to create a safe, caring and happy learning environment so that children are confident to take risks and comfortable in being challenged. We want learning to be enjoyable and fun so that our young people develop a thirst for knowledge and grow into life-long learners. It is important that children develop confidence and high self-esteem.
To help achieve this we offer a rich creative curriculum which nurtures independence, thinking skills, responsibility and high aspirations. We want our children to make a positive contribution to our school and local community so seeking their views is important to us. We view communication and social skills as vital to future success. We are proactive in encouraging healthy lifestyles through daily exercise, regular PE, healthy eating and specific courses about drugs, smoking and relationships. We are an inclusive school and provide learning opportunities for all whatever their learning needs. We embrace and value cultural diversity and reject intolerance in any form. We have high expectations for everyone involved in our school – our motto is “Reaching for success”
