Aycliffe Community Primary School’s vision is to Make a Difference to Learning. The core purpose of our school is learning. We ensure learning behaviours are maximised so pupils are able to grow personally, emotionally and academically.
To fulfil our vision our school promotes the values of caring, tolerance, passion, reflection and innovation. We believe that these values are fundamental to the success of pupils and the school.
Through the promotion of our core values the school develops pupils that are collaborative, inquisitive, compassionate, creative, confident and eager.
Pupils who are collaborative can explain their meaning-making to others and engage in dialogue that involves asking and answering questions, challenging ideas in a way which remains collaborative. Pupils who collaborate, use language to communicate successfully so that learning is deeper and richer.
Pupils who are inquisitive are curious, engaged learners who ask questions, speculate and hypothesise. They work at higher levels of thinking and creativity.
Pupils who are compassionate show care and respect for others. They are willing and offer help when friends and peers feel sad or upset.
Pupils who are creative think and behave imaginatively. They take risks, are curious, motivated, open-minded and are effective problem-solvers. They are able to lead and work well with others, and apply a creative process to other contexts and situations.
Pupils who are confident have a positive self-image and regard challenges in learning as part of the learning process. They are competent and adopt a can-do attitude. Confident pupils demonstrate resilience under challenging conditions.
Pupils who are eager are willing, enthusiastic and motivated to learn. They participate in learning opportunities and persist in learning when it is challenging. Eager pupils engage in exploring the learning environment and are excited to interact with it and to lead their own learning.
