At Merton Junior School, we pride ourselves on our clear vision and values which are at the heart of everything that we do. Our school’s vision has been designed and written by our staff, underpinning our school ethos and values.
Our vision is to develop:
· Happy and resilient learners who enjoy learning and approach challenges with confidence and a wide range of skills
· Responsible citizens who contribute positively to society, showing great moral compass and respect for all, working well both independently and as part of a team
· An engaging learning environment where everyone feels valued, challenged and safe
What are the aims of our curriculum?
Our curriculum is based on a holistic approach, engaging the head, hands, heart and soul of the individual and is built upon our Learning Values: independence, interdependence, thinking, creativity, spirituality and emotional intelligence interwoven with our HEART Values:
Our ‘HEART’ values are central to the way we work together, with the children and the whole community. We hope that our values will help children understand that there are some central beliefs that people hold. We encourage children to consider these values, thereby developing their social, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and moral understanding. We aim to develop children as reflective learners who will grow to be considerate citizens who understand their own and others rights and responsibilities. The children are introduced to the core values through collective worship, PSHE and RRR. Our values are promoted by the behaviour and high expectations of all adults in the school.
