Values and Ethos

WORKING TOGETHER FOR SUCCESS

At Yarm Primary we believe in maximising the potential of all members of our learning community. Therefore as a school we develop collaborative working and provide a creative nurturing learning environment where quality first teaching empowers pupils to be life-long learners.

We are inclusive and promote a culture of mutual respect and high expectation.

Yarm Primary is based upon committed teamwork involving teachers, staff, parents, children and Governors.

We want our children to be happy, to have high self-esteem and to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities, so that they can learn to handle new situations and accept the challenges that life (in the outside world) has to offer, even when those challenges might seem unfair.

We see children as individuals with differing needs and strengths. Our aim is to challenge and support all children and help them to achieve their full potential. We have high but realistic expectations. We want children to give their best, appreciate what they can do well and what they could make better.

We work to make Yarm Primary a true community of Life Long Learners.

Values and Ambitions of the Enquire Learning Trust

We believe that all learners can be powerful learners given access to good learning experiences. We want children and the academies they attend to be confident, successful and ambitious.

We envisage a Trust where well led, highly skilled and committed professionals collaborate, learn and innovate together to ensure that all academies are successful and where all learners have access to effective and innovative provision that meets their needs and aspirations.

We want to add value to achievement and raise standards. We also want to change lives. We know this requires our provision and our practice to be world class – because of the distance we have to travel, we understand that good will not be good enough and that we need to develop a shared appreciation of excellence and then strive to enact this every day.

We need to show that we take learning seriously and work together to create a vibrant culture in which this can happen. We know that it’s what we do that counts and that our thinking must be visible in classrooms if it is to have leverage. Children are at the forefront of all that we do and aspire to do. We need to take serious steps to engage them, to hear their voice in authentic ways and then to use their insight and expertise to develop radical pedagogies that taps into their passions and interests and use the potential of emergent technologies.
