School Ethos

When we developed our aims we wanted them to be relevant to all the people in our school. We started therefore by talking a little with the children about what was important in their school. We then had meetings with the staff, the governors and the parents and formed a working group who would spend time discussing the wording once the principles were established. Having clarified principles and words, we returned to the children so they could have ownership of the aims for their school. We therefore now have an adult version and a children’s version developed with the whole school then updated in school council, both of which follow.

School Aims

British Values

Redbourn Infant and Nursery School actively promotes the fundamental values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those different with faiths or beliefs. These are interpreted for our youngest children as learning right and wrong; learning to take turns and share; and challenging negative views and stereotypes.
