'The Gateway to Achievement'
We have 5 core school values, which underpin the behaviours we expect our children to demonstrate to everyone in The Gateway community. These values are promoted by all school staff and are displayed in the hall, where each class has created a school value display. Our assembly themes are often linked to these values.
Our values are very important to us. They ensure that pupils and staff alike are all striving towards the same goals. We celebrate pupils displaying these values during our whole school Celebration assembly on a Friday. The pupils are awarded stars which are displayed outside the hall to celebrate our school values in 'action'.
The DFE expects all schools to play a part in preparing pupils positively for life in modern Britain and promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and those without faith.
At The Gateway we actively promote the British values through our school ethos and culture, our curriculum (including RE and PSHE) and by engaging our pupils in wider curriculum events throughout the year.
What do the British values look like in our school?
Pupil voice is embedded in the life of the school.
Pupils are listened to and are expected to listen to and respect the views of others.
The Rule of Law
An understanding of British Law is developed through our curriculum and assemblies.
Our Golden Rules ensure our community is a safe and respectful environment for all, promotes positive relationships and excellent behaviour.
Individual Liberty and mutual respect
Our pupils are encouraged to make choices in a safe and supportive environment.
Respect and tolerance of different beliefs and faiths
Through our curriculum and special events children are taught to understand and appreciate the diverse culture in our society.
