These are the beliefs and values that stimulate teaching and learning.

We believe:

  • Quality learning is a result of quality teaching, which is itself informed by regular assessment and oral and written feedback.
  • Quality learning is enhanced by a variety of teaching styles and strategies.
  • Children and teachers value learning, the development of learning skills and the acquisition of knowledge.
  • To learn children must be involved in their own learning and understand what they need to do to improve.
  • All staff have high expectations of children in terms of their learning.
  • All children should be encouraged to develop enquiring minds.
  • Children should be encouraged by all staff to become increasingly independent learners.
  • Parents and carers have a crucial and constructive role to play in developing their children’s learning.

At Mountbatten Primary School we endeavour to create a positive context for learning.

Our Ethos:

  • Fostering a caring and considerate environment where all children feel safe.
  • Providing good role models through the way that we interact with all adults and children, at all times, and in all places.
  • Developing classroom environments in which children feel valued, respected and safe.
  • Creating an environment where it is acceptable to make mistakes and be challenged by their learning.
  • Involving all pupils in the way the school is run, through class and school councils, in order to make them feel that their opinion is valued.
  • Providing exciting opportunities for learning, which enrich the curriculum and include after-school activities, visits and input from the wider community, including visiting speakers, arts performers and representatives from the sporting organisations.
