Caring Learning Growing
Our vision is to create a learning environment that inspires our children to achieve the best they possibly can and to continually strive to improve themselves. We want our children to thrive, to have confidence and ambition to learn.
We will provide a safe working environment that enables our children to take calculated risks, make decisions, ask questions and to be independent individuals.
We recognise that learning can take place both inside and outside the classroom. We will know this is happening when we hear the "buzz" of happy children absorbed in their learning.
We will promote inclusion and encourage children to find ways to overcome any barriers for learning.
Our school will be at the heart of the Iver Village community.
We provide our children with opportunities to set their own values preparing them for their future life ahead.
The culture of our school is....
"We can't do it YET!"
At Iver Village Infant School & Iver Village Acorn Nursery, we actively promote British values through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum, and teaching. As such, we promote tolerance of, and respect for, people of all faiths (or those with no faith), cultures, and lifestyles.
We prepare children and young people positively for life in modern Britain by supporting them through our words, actions, and influence, not just within school, but also within the wider community.
Promoting Our Values
The government defines British values as:
Rule of law.
Tolerance of those of different faiths.
At Iver Village Infant School & Iver Village Acorn Nursery, we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this is a range of curriculum topics that have strong links to the British Empire. We actively challenge children, staff, and parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values, including ‘extremist’ views.
