Aims and Values

School Aims

  • Wheldon Infant School and Nursery aspires to give every child aged 3-7years and their families the best possible high quality services in their local school close to where they live.
  • We will offer every child a world class education that gives them the best possible start in life.
  • By transforming the educational attainment and progress of children we will ensure all our children become confident, secure, caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a love of learning.
  • We will be proud to have inclusion, collaboration and partnership at the heart of all we do and will place an emphasis on early intervention and prevention work so that more children achieve the best they can from the very early years.

School Ethos and Values

We aim to have a welcoming, calm, happy and purposeful atmosphere in school in which everyone feels comfortable, motivated and takes pleasure in their learning.

We see the Nursery and Infant School as a link between home, formal education and eventual employment in the wider world. Children will be encouraged to develop a sense of pride in themselves and their school and recognise that their school is part of a wider community.

We have a policy of co-operation, sharing and openness between all members of staff and all staff, teaching or non-teaching, are involved in the general education of the children. Within such an environment we aim to give all children the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to communicate, learn and acquire knowledge. 

We welcome parents into school and encourage them to become involved in the education of their children.

We acknowledge the skills children bring with them to school and aim to extend their previous experiences and development in partnership with home. 

We aim to provide an environment of high expectation in which children learn self-control, have self-respect and show care and respect for others and their property.
