School Aims, Ethos and Values

Aims and Ethos
Our aims were established by parents, governors, staff and children. These aims, our Secrets of Success and our Golden Rules set out the principles and guidance through which we strive to make our school a place where everyone can thrive and learn together.
 
We believe that positive, caring and strong relationships underpin and set the ethos of the Broadway East First School family. We value every member and we work together to promote the values of respect, tolerance, understanding and cooperation. 
 
Everyone in our school family knows that we have to work hard if we want to improve our learning and our school, we want everyone to have the positivity and resilience to strive to get better and learn new things every day.
 
The full and detailed aims can be seen below.
 
 
Our Provision and Curriculum are built on our core values of:
 

Challenge, Equality & Opportunity

The Golden Rules
 
The Golden Rules underpin our behaviour policy and are used to help everyone to work together safely and to develop a sense of responsibility for our actions.
 
 
The Secrets of Success
 
The Secrets of Success help us to develop positive learning behaviours including perseverance, resilience, confidence, tenacity, questioning, reflection, collaboration, exploration... We talk about the Secrets of Success in assemblies and we link positive learning behaviours to rewards and targets.
