OPJS Vision, Values and British Values

OPJS Vision

 

At Oldfield Park Junior School we work together as a supportive community to provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment where children are valued as individuals, engaged in their learning and inspired to achieve excellence. 

 

We aim for all our children to:
 
  • achieve excellence from a high quality, engaging curriculum;
  • develop enquiring minds, be curious and creative thinkers;
  • acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to the changing world;
  • respect and value themselves, other people and their environment;
  • take responsibility for their own actions and have the confidence to make informed choices;
  • value and celebrate the opportunities life has to offer;
  • believe in themselves and recognise their own potential;
  • celebrate being together and recognise themselves as equal citizens of the wider world;
  • be confident learners who work independently and collaboratively and take ownership of their learning; and
  • enjoy their experiences and be proud to belong to the OPJS community.

OPJS and British Values

 

We are proud to say that at OPJS to have a strong sense of identity and values.  We have 11 values which we focus upon through everyday life and these dovetail with the key British Values.  Indeed, through activities such as 'Learning to Lead', School Council elections, our engaging and broad curriculum, numerous trips and events, initiatives and assemblies, we ensure that we exhibit these values in everyday life.  Below are the OPJS and British Values that are not only proudly on display, but form an integral part of our life at our school.
