Values and Ethos

Old Park Values (Monty’s Values)   

At Old Park we promise you a nurturing ethos where children will be able to dream and plan for an ambitious future; to believe in themselves and the ability of their teachers and other adults to guide them; to inspire others through their aspiration and success and to achieve the highest standards they are capable of in all areas.

Monty joined our school in September 2019 and is our Values’ Mascot.  He enjoys being part of our school assemblies and becomes a ‘class member’ on a weekly basis.  This is a huge honour as he joins a class who is nominated for demonstrating our school values!  He is very proud to be part of Old Park Primary School.

 

Our OLD PARK values are:

Optimism Love of Learning Diversity
Perseverance Ambition Responsibility Kindness

These values are explored through our Well-Being curriculum, enrichment activities and assemblies.  They are celebrated each week through our ‘Values Ambassador’ award where a child from each class is acknowledged for demonstrating an Old Park value.

Our school values are explored alongside the British values through our Well-Being Curriculum.
