NEPS Learning ValuesNorth Ealing Primary School
Our four Core principles underpin the organisation of our curriculum:
Underpinned by our Learning Values, we develop every child so that they can experience life to the fullest and are ready for the next stage of their education
With big questions, big ideas and an investigative nature, we allow children to generate their own questions, think critically, forge and develop meaningful connections of the key concepts
We have an understanding of concepts we want children to know at the end of each year. And we believe in making all learning purposeful by making links, providing context and relevant enrichment.
A considered way of life – caring for the environment and each other is embedded across our curriculum with real-life implications being taught in many areas of the curriculum and addressed via SMSC, British Values and teaching of Unicef Rights.
- Lifelong Learners
- Determined to do our best
- Respectful and responsible
British Values at North Ealing Primary School
At North Ealing, we are developing our curriculum and in particular our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural programme in order to incorporate ‘British Values’. Alongside our school learning values we reinforce these values regularly in the following ways:
- The school council election follows a democratic process.
- Pupils having a voice through regular school council meetings and pupil questionnaires.
- Debates within lessons where children listen and respond to different points of views.
- Children voting on whole-class rewards linked to the behaviour for learning policy.
- The use of a restorative approach to resolving conflicts allowing the children to express their views and thoughts.
- Visits to Parliament and follow up discussion and assemblies.
- Engage with local councillors and MPs to learn more about local democracy, elections and their role.
The Rule of Law:
- Children learn what is right and wrong through classroom and whole school rules.
- Weekly awards for politeness, considerate behaviour and for championing the schools learning values are in place.
- Anti-bullying week and continued work across the year.
- The regular visits from the authorities e.g. Police, Fire service, Medical staff and MPs.
- We are also in the process of working towards becoming a ‘Rights Respecting School’.
- The children are encouraged to develop choices at school for example through our Online Safety and RSHE lessons.
- Children making the right decisions about their behaviour in class and around the school, being responsible for their actions.
- Linking the reward systems to the North Ealing learning values e.g. ‘Respectful and Responsible’ and ‘Harmonious’.
- The whole school code of conduct
- The Behaviour for learning policy clearly states that children need to take responsibility for their actions and embeds the idea of consequences.
- All incidents of racism/bullying are reported and acted upon immediately through the appropriate channels.
- Regular fundraising events are initiated by the school council and the pupil’s voice generally.
Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs:
- Our RE curriculum reflects all the world religion
- A regular celebration of religious differences and similarities is explored through learning about the different festivals.
- A range of resources and approaches are used to enhance the learning about different faiths and beliefs.
- Assemblies and discussions involving those about prejudices are a part of the schedule and are followed up by RE and RSHE lessons.
- The school has regular international events in order to enhance the children’s understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society. A range of languages, food and traditions from around the world are explored.
- Members of different faiths and religions are regularly invited to the school to share their knowledge and explore diversity with the children.
