At Wallscourt Farm Academy we are creating and fostering a multi-faith, socially diverse environment with an emphasis on common values and principles for life.

These values underpin everything that happens within and around the school, becoming the benchmark for any action within the school.

A core element of creating ambitious young people who are culturally aware and able to contribute to society and the lives of others as they become adults themselves, is the need to embed tolerance, understanding, & mutual respect into the curriculum and ethos of the school.

Our Values for Learning:

Learning is progressive, connected, flexible and personalised

Learning is fun, purposeful and engaging.

Learners achieve their best when motivated and secure

A range of learning environments inspire learning

A caring culture fosters respect and understanding of rights and responsibilities

Effective partnerships with families and community enhance learning

At Wallscourt Farm Academy, we believe that all children have rights, as laid down by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the child. We are fully committed to ensuring that we meet every child's needs.

We are a completely inclusive school, and we ensure all children are able to access what they need to support them in their learning. You can read over overview of supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. This document is a one page overview for families and our full policy is available in the policy section.

We have a School Charter which identifies 4 whole school rights;

1) We have the right to be safe and to not be hurt by anyone.

We have the responsibility to think about our behaviour and how it affects other people. We need to be kind and caring when we play with others.

2) We have the right to learn through play and be given the chance to be the best we can at whatever we wish to do.

We have the responsibility to try our hardest and keep practising and not distract other people. If you get stuck always ask for help. Be a tortoise!

3) We have the right to be healthy - including having food, water and a great space.

We have the responsibility to make healthy choices and keep our space feeling great.

4) We have the right to be heard and to tell others what we are thinking and feeling.

We have the responsibility to listen to others and look at people when they are speaking.

To promote these values:

As a school, we have a responsibility to promote and support children's knowledge and understanding of safety and well-being.

Pupil voice and partnership in learning is central to the enriched curriculum we offer at Wallscourt Farm Academy. Our Future Leader Representatives meet regularly to share views, thoughts and ideas in terms of developments at Wallscourt Farm Academy. Self Evaluation from pupils and families is key.

Regular opportunities to gather together as one learning community is an integral part of life at Wallscourt Farm Academy. A values framework underpins these gatherings, and the children are supported to consider a range of key values which support them to become confident citizens who are able to make informed decisions and are balanced in their views, with an understanding and tolerance of the views of others.

Our Behaviour for Learning policy, combined with our whole school Rights and Responsibilities culture underpins the whole language and approach at Wallscourt Farm Academy.

A range of learning experiences and opportunities with the pupils in each year group takes place to help children develop their understanding of ways to keep safe, healthy and happy. This includes visits from members of the community, and the opportunity to meet people from a range of authorities including the Police, Fire services and Ambulance services.

We have close connections with a range of community and faith groups, and the children have the opportunity to learn about and celebrate a range of places and events linked to faith and to life in modern Britain.

SEAL and PSHE learning, Lifelines learning and learning across the school related to Rights Respecting and Restorative Approaches all help promote Safeguarding principles within and beyond the learning zones.
