Vision, Values and Aims
At Floreat Montague Park Primary School children and adults work in a holistic way by integrating spiritual, moral, aesthetic, physical, social, emotional and intellectual strands into our everyday lives and practice.
Children are supported to achieve high standards of self-discipline, a strong work ethic, effective social skills and an accomplished intellect.
We aim to accomplish this by working on the following core areas:
To provide a nurturing environment which allows children to grow, learn and flourish in their personal and academic development based on the six principles of nurture:
- Children’s learning is understood developmentally
- The classroom offers a safe base
- The importance of nurture for the development of self-esteem
- Language is a vital means of communication
- All behaviour is communication and
- The importance of transition in children’s lives.
- Personal development
To promote children’s personal development enabling them to become motivated, inspired, self-disciplined and independent children who have a love of learning and want to make a positive difference to the world; joining UNICEF and their Rights Respecting Schools Programme.
To promote and develop the idea of sustainability at the school, in the community and globally through our own work and partnerships with the UN and Rights Respecting Schools
To provide and continually develop a thematic curriculum that is meaningful, purposeful and responsive to opportunities and developments.
To be an integral part of the community through the children, their families, neighbours and organisations.
To develop our school grounds and building to drive the curriculum and inspire us all in line with the principle of The Third Teacher.
Our Values, Philosophy, and Culture
We strongly encourage the children to be responsible for themselves: their conduct, their work; their time-keeping; their environment and their community. In order to engender this sense of responsibility, we constantly engage the children in matters relating to the running of the school, from educational matters to health and safety; from choosing which charities to support to managing the risks associated with an outdoor setting and encountering potentially harmful plants and insects. The children expect to be involved and this is evident in the day-to-day, ad hoc conversations as you walk through school as well as in the formal school meetings. Our expectation is that the character traits we foment have a significant impact on their learning.
This approach is underpinned by:
The GLF Motto - Grow, Learn, Flourish
The School Mantra - Kindness Matters
The School Values - Resilience, Love, Bravery, Optimism, Service, Honesty, Fairness, Trust, Teamwork, Gratitude
