Values

Mossgate Primary is a values school.  It is our values that determine our thinking and behaviour. Through a values based curriculum, a positive culture for teaching and learning is created which is based upon valuing ourselves, each other and the environment. Our school values support the development of the whole child.

The ethos of our school is built on a foundation of core values, including the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs .

Our values are addressed directly through lessons, assemblies and across the whole curriculum. Each half term we focus on a particular value. We learn to understand what the values looks like and how we can demonstrate the value, in the way we behave, in our attitude towards each other and in our learning. Parents are encouraged to develop the value at home.
