At Otterhampton Primary School, we believe that our children come first. We want them to feel happy valued and secure.
We will endeavour to provide a stimulating, exciting learning environment in which each child develops to their full potential.
We aim to develop the ability of children to question, in order to become confident independent thinkers who have mutual respect for each other and the world around them.
We aim to create a partnership between home school and community in order to encourage children to become responsible citizens of the world.
At Otterhampton Primary School, we discussed the core values that we believe underpin our right to a happy and effective learning community and environment, in which everyone feels valued and in which everyone is able to strive to constantly realise and extend their potential.
Each class identified the qualities that they felt were most important and we developed and agreed a set of 8 shared values.
These values are the foundation for all of our work, our behaviour policy and our daily interactions. They also provide themes for our shared assemblies.
Every week, the school council nominate members of their classes who have best embodied the selected "Value of the Week". These winners are celebrated at a weekly assembly.
