Our Vision: We Care; Challenge; Achieve; and Open Minds.
Herbert Strutt Primary is:
“Full of exciting and challenging experiences, where pupils are helped to develop a love of learning and to be their best.
It is a caring and safe community, where everyone is respected and included.
Pupils' achievements are celebrated and the whole community is proud of themselves and of each other."
Aim high and be PROUD of yourself!
We want everyone involved with our school to make it a place where people are:
Persevering to achieve personal goals
Respectful, polite and well-mannered
Open-minded and tolerant of the views and beliefs of other people
Understanding of themselves and of others
Determined to make the most of every opportunity
At Herbert Strutt, we aim to ensure that all children are happy and challenged, enjoy learning and celebrate their achievement, in a safe and secure environment. We have high expectations for all our children in both learning and behaviour, these are reinforced though the use of a badge system: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Pupils review the rewards and expectations linked to this system each year through their class councils.
We encourage our children:
- to love learning and to do their very best
- to behave well at all times
- to respect themselves and others
- to be proud of themselves and their school environment
- to show tolerance and understanding to others
- to have positive attitudes to learning
Behaviour and discipline
We have high expectations for all our children, parents, governors and staff; in both learning and behaviour. As a school, we promote self–discipline and respect for authority, teaching children to make the right choice. We encourage and reward good behaviour at all times and aim to develop a sense of responsibility for self and others.
We have the following school rules:
- We respect each other
- We use kind words and actions
- We listen and learn
As well as these we have class rules, that have been agreed by the children. We need your support in maintaining our high standards of behaviour, and would like you to help us by teaching your child to understand and keep to the school rules.
We aim to deliver a curriculum that offers all pupils every opportunity to achieve their full potential; staff are skilled at involving pupils in the design of learning challenges for each topic and have high expectations of all their pupils.They do not set limits of achievement based on race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, disability or sexuality. Equally, all pupils are encouraged to develop their own talents and interests, are given the confidence to be themselves and protected from undue pressure from others. For further detail, see the Curriculum tab.
At Herbert Strutt Primary, we have a clear set of values that permeate everything we do. We work hard to develop these within our children, so that they will carry them forward into their adult lives, as part of the people they grow up to be.
