Our Values

Our Ethos

At West Earlham Junior School we are aiming to develop learners who are good positive citizens of the world who behave respectfully towards others. We want them to look outwards and develop an awareness and curiosity about the wider world beyond their immediate environment.

We want our learners to have the self-confidence to be aspirational about their future lives and possess the know-how to achieve their goals. We want them to attain high standards in the key skills in reading and writing and maths to enable them to do this, and to make connections in and enjoy their learning. We want our learners to develop positive learning dispositions becoming creative flexible thinkers who are adaptable and able to learn independently following their own interests and passions. When they have done well we want our learners to have the confidence to celebrate their achievements and be able to recognise mistakes and failures as learning experiences and develop the resilience to learn and grow from them.

We want our learners to develop into healthy adults both physically and emotionally who have empathetic and open-minded attitudes that enable them to make good choices and decisions in life.

Above all we want them to become life-long learners who are happy and content.

The Aims of Our Curriculum are to create:

  • Healthy, self-confident people, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
  • Determined, capable learners, who continue to learn throughout their lives.
  • Respectful individuals who are ready to contribute to their community fully.
  • Ethical informed citizens of the world.
