Brave enough to tackle challenges

We BELIEVE learning takes place when challenges are presented.  We teach the skills of Minditude to enable children to tackle challenges and take risks positively.  We recognise that making a mistake is a fundamental part of the learning process.

Excited and motivated to achieve

We BELIEVE our school days should be filled with joy, excitement and fun.  A rich and relevant curriculum is designed to broaden the life experiences of our children.  We provide a safe environment that stimulates and excites, and promotes an ethos where children and adults are confident to smile ahead of challenges.

Leading a healthy, responsible lifestyle

We BELIEVE we should all be responsible citizens.  We endeavour to equip children with the knowledge and skills to enable them to make informed decisions and take responsibility for their own choices and actions in an ever changing society.

Individually contributing to make a difference

We BELIEVE everyone has a positive contribution to make to our school and community.  We support each child and family to make positive, individual choices in order to raise overall standards across school.  We celebrate significant personal achievements whilst enabling children to be important contributors within a successful team.

Excellent communicators

We BELIEVE communication is a crucial life skill which we embed in all areas of the curriculum.  Adults and children develop and share ideas, and listen to each other.  In learning and social time, the art of communicating effectively is of the upmost importance.  Children are encouraged to ask questions to become curious and independent learners.  Through listening to all stakeholders, we ensure that we provide the best for the children at William Booth.

Valued and respected members of our community

We BELIEVE every child and adult at William Booth is entitled to be respected.  We actively promote a culture of tolerance and respect, and celebrate diversity.  Every opportunity is taken to bring visitors into school and for our learning to support the local community.  We constantly strive to be a school that our community is proud to call its own.

Expected to aim high

We BELIEVE everyone has the potential for personal greatness.  It is our responsibility to ensure that every child at William Booth believes they have the ability to learn and the self-assurance to solve problems and overcome difficulties.  We teach the children that they can aspire to be anything that they want to be and that their future has no limits.

 

Together, we are William Booth!
