School Ethos and Values

 

“Aspiring to Greater Heights”

Oughtrington Community Primary School is a dynamic learning community where both children and adults share a commitment to bringing our school motto of 'Aspiring to Greater Heights' to life each day.  At Oughtrington, we are passionate about providing a broad, balanced, exciting curriculum.  We aim to equip our pupils with the skills and knowledge to face the challenges of our future, in a rapidly changing global society.  In our classrooms, we provide high quality teaching and learning opportunities, which are sensitive to individual needs, in a safe, caring, supportive and stimulating environment.  We offer opportunities to take risks in learning and to aim to foster a lifelong love of learning. 

At Oughtrington, we are all encouraged to develop emotional intelligence and self-expression.  Values-Based Education is an integral part of our curriculum.  This encourages us all to reflect on our own values and behaviour, and helps our pupils to develop universal positive human values such as respect, integrity, honesty and compassion.  Children are given many opportunities to contribute positively to society.  In partnership with parents, carers and the wider community we work towards making everyone’s time at Oughtrington Community Primary School a fun, memorable and valuable learning experience for life.
