The school builds Christian values into its ethos and teaching in order to provide an excellent academic, social and spiritual education, preparing children for a responsive and contributive role in society.
We do this by
- Promoting and modelling Christian values within the school thereby encouraging personal integrity, consideration for others and understanding different viewpoints
- Offering an exciting curriculum, planned appropriately to be accessible to all, which enables all children to develop a positive self-image, achieve well and develop a love of learning
- Celebrating and valuing our school as a multi-cultural community
- Promoting effective problem-solving, communication and thinking skills
- Creating strong links between school, home, our parish church and the local community
Vision and Values
At Eltham Church of England Primary School, we strive to provide learning experiences that inspire a love of learning. We aim to make learning truly irresistible through developing an engaging, creative, active and investigative curriculum that meets all of the aspects of the National Curriculum and is made relevant with tasks and activities being planned through a central ‘core text’.
Through careful monitoring, feedback and assessments we develop a clear understanding of each child’s individual needs. We strive to ensure that every child achieves well and makes good progress throughout their time at Eltham Church of England Primary School. By personalising learning and responding to each child’s learning journey we enable each child to achieve well and feel successful. We work to identify and nurture talent in our children and our adults and develop a culture of striving to achieve the highest possible standards. As our children continually experience success, they develop self-confidence, enterprise and a “can-do” mentality. They enjoy being challenged and pushed to their limits as they make sense of the world around them. They are able to communicate effectively in a variety of contexts.
Each adult in the school strives for excellence by conveying a passion for learning and a dedication to the task of providing inspirational learning experiences. It is through this passion, commitment and expertise shown by staff that the children’s success will be assured. We believe that our children deserve the very best we can offer. We aim to improve and develop our facilities so that they promote learning. We understand that children learn better in a safe and stimulating environment and when they are provided with the best quality resources and equipment.
We nurture supportive and happy relationships throughout the school so that children look forward to coming to school and feel valued by those around them. Our Christian values underpin everything we do at Eltham Church of England Primary School and Prayer and reflection enhances the spiritual and moral development of our children. We strive to nurture an ethos that embodies the phrase, “Love thy neighbour.” Our School Values are:
