Our particular aim is to be found in the following statement:
`At Broadmeadow Junior School we aim to create an environment where children can work purposefully; feel secure, happy and confident; and where relationships are based on trust, respect and tolerance.’
We strive to know more, remember more and are able to do more.
We gain new experiences and opportunities which challenge, develop and prepare us for our next steps.
We do the right thing because we know it is the right thing to do and build positive, supportive relationships.
We recognise our strengths and use these to make a positive impact on life at Broadmeadow Junior and our
We encourage all of our pupils to demonstrate that they are:
Ready to Learn
Respectful of everyone and everything
Safe - Keeping themselves and others safe
Each year the children decide upon their class charter and how these protect our rights and ensure that we are ready, respectful and safe. All the children contribute to the drawing up of the charter. We have a school council who are democratically elected by their peers. The council is able to effect change within the school.
The Rule of Law
The importance of laws, whether they are those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced. Pupils are taught the rules of the school. They are taught the value and reasons behind rules and laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service help reinforce this message.
Pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for our pupils to make informed choices, through a safe environment and an empowering education. Pupils are advised how to exercise their rights safely, for example through our and PSHE and RSE lessons.
Mutual respect is at the heart of our values. Children learn to treat other people with dignity and recognising their value.
Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs
We promote diversity through our celebrations of different faiths and cultures. Religious Education lessons, RSE and PSHE lessons reinforce messages of tolerance and respect for others. Members of all faiths and religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school.
