At Waterfield we will strive to work together. We will promote positive team work and collaboration. We will adopt the ‘Working with Others’ program, which will teach children how to build positive relationships and communication skills.
Aspiring to be the best
All adults will recognise every child’s individual talents and needs. At Waterfield we will encourage a love for learning where each child is given opportunities to be the best they can be. Every child will be able to learn to the best of his/her ability and to develop whatever skills he/she possesses.
Trusting in each other
We will endeavour to be a community that is not afraid to be open and honest. Everyone will feel that that they have a voice and they have been heard and listened to. We will work as a whole community to trust in each other to make our school a success for the future.
Enjoying physical and healthy life choices
We will work hard to maintain our ‘Healthy Schools’ award. We want all children to be healthy at school and in life. We will provide opportunities at school for enhancing emotional, physical health and well-being.
Respecting each other
We will work hard to work in partnership with parents, carers and others to provide a school ethos where each child feels valued and respected and proud of themselves and their local community. Everyone will be treated equally irrespective of gender, race, physical characteristics or any other. We will ensure our children develop an understanding of their own and others feelings cultures and beliefs and become responsible citizens
Fun active Learning
At Waterfield we want this school to be a place where learning is fun! We want all children to be motivated in their learning. In order to achieve such a culture we focus on high standards, quality teaching and valuing children.
Inner belief – I can do!
All adults will have high expectations from our children. Teachers will set challenging targets for both their learning and behaviour and the children are clear because they know how to achieve. We will hold regular assemblies, where rewards are given for achieving targets and good behaviour. All our children will leave Waterfield as independent and confident learners.
Enrichment within the curriculum
Waterfield will enable all learners to develop confidence to be innovative and creative thinkers. We achieve this by providing children with a stimulating learning environment. It will be a school which will allow our children to explore new experiences beyond their own work. All our pupils will be equipped with the key skills for the unknown future.
Life Long Learners
We will endeavour to provide children with the skills and knowledge they need to never stop learning; to encourage children to never be afraid to try something new each day. We will motivate children to see problem solving as fun and a skill that that can use throughout their lifetimes.
Delivering first class education
We will have a motivated and skilful workforce that embraces change positively, thus equipping our School for learning in the 21st Century. We will develop the potential of all our staff by providing high quality training for teaching and all support staff.
