Our Vision & Values
At The Croft Primary School, we enhance our pupils’ learning experience by using a holistic, cross-curricular approach. We engage children through topics and questions that are designed in line with contexts they enjoy, e.g. dinosaurs, superheroes, pirates, lost worlds, and robots. We use our flexible, modern classrooms and shared learning spaces for maximum differentiation to support all learning needs, as well as arranging and funding shared learning visits and visitors to stimulate and celebrate the children’s learning. Our staff are energetic and dedicated to personalising the learning for all our pupils.
We actively practise values-based education (VbE) as it encourages and supports the moral, social, and cultural wellbeing of every child. These values are interwoven with every element of daily life at The Croft.
At The Croft, we actively promote British values through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum, and teaching. As such, we promote tolerance of, and respect for, people of all faiths (or those with no faith), cultures, and lifestyles.
We prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain by supporting them through our words, actions, and influence, not just within school, but also within the wider community.
Promoting Our Values
The government defines British values as:
- Rule of law.
- Individual liberty.
- Mutual respect.
- Tolerance of those of different faiths.
At The Croft, we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families, and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this is a range of curriculum topics that have strong links to the British Empire. We actively challenge children, staff, and parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values, including ‘extremist’ views.
As part of The White Horse Federation, we passionately believe that by working together, the children are able to have a higher quality of education, and that as colleagues, we will also benefit from and reap the rewards of a values-based organisation where no one is left behind.
