Aims and Values

Our ethos is that all children at Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery will be happy successful learners who achieve their full potential and develop a lifetime love of reading and learning. We work together as a whole school team to seek to achieve “High Achievement and Success with a Smile” by being values led; our values and ethos underpin all that we do!

Character education is systematically planned for all children at Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery. We believe that not only is it is important for the children to be highly motivated and keen to please, but we want them to understand the importance of being driven internally as this supports them to show greater levels of persistence and achievement.

Our school values (Determination • Effort • Friendship • Good manners • Respect • Reflection) are taught explicitly in the classroom but they are also part of everything we do. All staff within the school also model the values, and relationships show the importance of mutual respect. Children are rewarded for displaying these behaviours as part of their ‘Dojo’ class reward system. We also have regular assemblies which focus on teaching a value through a story and encourage the children to identify how this relates to them.
