Vision and Values
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
From the moment that each and every child is welcomed into Hugo Meynell for the first time, right up to the day they leave us, we want their primary school days to be both purposeful and memorable. We promise to provide an education and overall experience that is rewarding and enriching, where children are nurtured, enjoy learning and where our Christian values enable them to develop their unique talents and gifts and so, live ”life in all its fullness” (John 10:10)
We aim to achieve our vision with the CHILDREN through:
Collaboration: Working together with all stakeholders for the common good.
High Quality Teaching: Securing the very best teachers who can ensure our children achieve all they are capable of.
Individuality: Each child is valued for their individuality and encouraged to develop their skills and interests to become the best versions of themselves.
Learning: Inspiring children so that they have a thirst for knowledge and understanding and for them to develop a confidence and curiosity for learning.
Diversity: We are an inclusive school, welcoming of all, irrespective of our differences.
Resilience: Ensuring our learning environment encourages children to meet challenges with perseverance and determination.
Expectations: Hugo Meynell’s standards are high. We strive for excellence in all areas of school life.
Nurturing: Supporting children to grow up to respect themselves and each other in a safe and caring environment.
As a school, we worked with the children to re-visit our core Christian values that underpin Hugo Meynell’s daily life. To do this, staff asked the children what is special about our school and what values they think best epitomise a member of our Hugo Meynell community. From these discussions, the children voted on the six core values they feel are the most important for our school.
Taking into consideration all children’s responses from Nursery to Year 6, at Hugo Meynell we strive to be:
- Loving and caring – to each other and mindful of others’ needs
- Honest – in all we do
- Respectful – to each other and the environment in which we live
- Resilient – to persevere and not give up
- Forgiving – to both say and show we are sorry for angry words and actions
- Fair – to treat each other equally and respectfully
It is our belief that, with these core values at the centre of all they do, our children will be well-rounded, values-based citizens, who are both kind and respectful with an empathy and understanding for others, who are able to celebrate similarities and differences in our diverse world.
