At Bedgrove Junior School we believe that we are 'Learning for our Future'. We believe our role is to prepare pupils both academically and socially for their future in an ever changing world.
Our mission at Bedgrove Junior School is to:
Inspire - we strive to ignite a passion for learning within our children and aim to ignite children's enthusiasm and desire to learn and explore.
Challenge - we aim to provide challenge for all children so that they strive to achieve their very best. We adopt a growth mind-set policy where children will self-challenge and always try to do even better and learn from their mistakes.
Succeed - we want all of our children to succeed to the very best of their own ability. We have a 'can do' culture where we believe every child can achieve and we support, challenge and motivate pupils to want to succeed in everything they do.
Our vision for Bedgrove Junior School is:
"To be an outstanding school at the heart of our community which enables everyone to achieve their full potential, with shared values that prepare children for their future in a fast-moving, diverse world.
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.
Our six core values instill an understanding in pupils about what they need to do to be good member of our school community. The six core values are based on our strong belief of what we want every member of our school to be.
Our Core values are:
Consideration - valuing empathy towards others and treating others as you would have them treat you.
Co-operation - valuing the talents and skills of others to enable the achievement of all and working together.
Challenge - valuing personal achievement and always striving to be better.
Commitment - valuing determination and individual dedication and being dedicated to a cause.
Curiosity - valuing a strong desire to know or learn something and wanting to know more.
Community - valuing the diversity of the world around us and showing an awareness of how we can make a positive contribution.
Whilst our values underpin everything we do and are taught throughout our curriculum, they are also explicitly taught during 'Healthy Minds' lessons and also during whole school assemblies.
