|uplands-junior-new | Aims and Ethos||Everything we do as a school is to ensure that the children achieve their very best.|
At Khalsa Science Academy we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate this. Democracy Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through Pupil questionnaires.
As a group each class has the responsibility for setting class behaviour rules and as part of anti-bullying week all pupils agreed and signed, a whole school anti — bullying pledge.
The Rule of Law: The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout the school as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.
Authorities such as the Police and Fire Service will be invited in school to help reinforce this message. Individual Liberty Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and are advised how to exercise these safely, for example through class assemblies and PSHCE lessons.
Pupils have taken part in anti — bullying week and as part of art lessons created posters around the school to promote respect for others.
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs This is achieved through enhancing pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity.
Pupils had the opportunity to tour the Church and explore the different aspects of the Christian faith. International Perspective Our city is a vibrant, positively diverse reflection of 21st Century Britain as an exciting global village.
People from all corners of the world share our streets. For this reason we have carefully designed our curriculum to provide an international perspective to every topic we teach, and promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils.
Scientific Focus We firmly believe in the importance of science as a foundation for all areas of learning. Children are full of natural curiosity and we aim to harness this through adopting an investigative approach to the teaching of all subjects.
Nurturing a love of experimentation and enquiry at an early age will help our pupils mature as balanced, rational individuals capable of making the right decisions in order to make the most of whatever opportunities and challenges their futures bring.This term we have begun introducing our new school values to the children.
We began by asking 'What is a value?' We had many different responses, including 'What something costs' 'Something you show to other people' and 'They are how you are'. Terms such as ‘mission statements’, ‘vision’ and ‘values’ are not fixed and absolute and it is inevitable that what one institution may currently think of as a ‘vision’ may be construed by another as part of their ‘values’.
• Provide a safe, happy learning environment for all our pupils. • Provide a supportive and creative learning environment for all our pupils, and in so doing uphold the tradition of our foundation and enhance the Christian ethos of our school.
