Working Together to Care for Each Other
The way in which we expect adults and children to care for each other is an important aspect of our school values and permeates our school organisation, curriculum and policies.
In addition to this practical structures are in place to teach these skills that lead to us becoming a school team that works together to care for each other.
When children start school they are given a Year 6 buddy who supports them at breaktimes and at lunchtimes with those practical aspects of the day that can be quite challenging when you are 4 years old.
Our Year 6 children are all trained mediators. This enables them to support children to sustain and develop friendships and also develops skills that are useful as they move onto secondary school.
The caring aspect of school life is recognised through our ‘Catch ‘em Caring’ Awards.
The Green Leek Federation Aims Statement
Within a Christian framework at our ‘ Green Leek Federation Schools’ we aim to challenge and support all pupils to enable them to develop their talents and achieve their potential. All individuals are valued irrespective of ability, race, gender, culture or faith.
At our ‘Green Leek Federation Schools’ we aim to provide excellent teaching and stimulating learning experiences across a broad and balanced curriculum, within a happy, caring, inclusive and safe environment.
We aim to enable each child to develop the personal and social skills necessary for them to become independent, responsible, active participants in their community through partnerships with home, our parish churches, local neighbourhoods and the wider community.
Our Green Leek Federation Values
At All Saints’ and Burton Green we share three values regularly and explicitly within our school and wider community. These values underpin everything we strive to achieve.
- Value yourself as a unique, special, talented person by always trying to do the best in whatever you do;
- Value each other by treating everyone with care and respect through listening to people’s opinions, talking politely and treating everybody in the way we hope they will treat us;
- Value our school by caring for our school building and outdoor environment, and the resources we share.
