VISION AND VALUES
VISION AND VALUES FOR ALL OUR ‘ARCHERS’, BOTH PUPILS AND ADULTS ALIKE
At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we aim to provide a vibrantly creative and stimulating learning environment, which is safe, secure and welcoming to all its members – the ‘heart of the community’ in the truest sense. We embrace inclusivity and diversity, wanting everyone to be mutually supportive of one another. We celebrate one another’s successes, challenge each other to ‘aim high’ and all strive to be the best we can. We want our ‘Archers’ to have a sense of belonging, taking pride in their school and the historical footprint of our ‘Amesbury Archer’. In addition, we will enable everyone to make a positive contribution to our community and beyond. Each and every member of our learning community is encouraged to participate wholeheartedly in all their endeavours, holding on to their dreams and ambitions, whilst enjoying the confidence boost and sense of satisfaction that comes with achievement through challenge. We are learning for the future, in an ever-changing world, but must remember our historical legacy and the lessons from the past.
To these ends, our philosophy is underpinned by six key learning words:
ASPIRATIONAL– At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we encourage pupils to aim high in their learning. We deliver inspirational teaching so that pupils are motivated to strive to make their dreams for the future a reality.
RESILIENT- At Amesbury Archer Primary School we create an environment where pupils understand the importance of setting goals, solving problems and reflecting on areas of challenge in their learning and everyday lives. This promotes resilience in our pupils which enables them to have better outcomes academically, socially and emotionally.
CURIOUS – At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we encourage both pupils and staff to ask questions and to push the boundaries of their learning. We endeavour to answer even the most inquisitive of questions from our pupils.
HONEST- At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we enable our pupils to understand the importance of being honest in their approach to all aspects of their lives. This in turn helps them to build good relationships with their teachers and their peers and leads to positive learning experiences.
ENTHUSIASTIC – At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we celebrate the ambition to learn and make the most of our time at school. Our enthusiastic teachers welcome the passion to learn from our pupils and replicate this eagerness to get the most out of school.
RESPECTFUL - At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we will make good choices to ensure that we take care of ourselves and each other, our belongings and our environment. We know that everyone has the right to enjoy their learning and to be listened to without being judged. We accept differences and treat everyone fairly and equally.
Everything above is part of the ‘DNA’ of Amesbury Archer Primary School.
