Reach for the Stars
To develop happy, confident and enthusiastic individuals, providing the children with skills to be lifelong learners
At Ombersley Endowed First School our children are happy, confident and enthusiastic. Throughout their time at our school we plant the seeds which blossom into a lifelong quest for learning. Our children are at the centre of everything we do. We recognise that all children are unique and we nurture their individual strengths so that everyone feels gifted and talented. We aim to provide a welcoming, safe, happy school where everyone is respected and listened to; a school where we take pride in ourselves and our achievements, enabling children to become confident and successful learners.
But we are more than just a school, we are a family. Children, staff, parents, governors and the local community all have a valued role in the school’s success. We work together to provide our children with the skills and knowledge that are necessary to give them the very best start in life. We expect that they will have pride in their success and find their school life a lasting inspiration.
Our Key Skills, Commitments and Values
At Ombersley Endowed First School we aim to give our pupils the best start in life. We want them to be happy, independent learners, motivated by their natural curiosity of the world. We will know when we have achieved our aim because our children will have developed the five key skills for life:
• Problem solving • Teamwork • Self-management (initiative, organisation, accountability)
• Self-belief (confidence, resilience, positive attitude) • Communication
We believe that our pupils have the right to learn in a safe environment and believe they should feel and be safe at all times. To enable this to happen we work together with all members of the school community, children, staff, parents/carers and governors to promote:
‘Treat others as you would wish them to treat you!’
The teaching of these commitments underpin the day to day values we promote:
• We show respect and have empathy • We are compassionate, forgiving and tolerant
• We are resilient and persevere • We are patient and kind • We are developing independence and responsibility •We have aspiration
