Welcome to Carlton Vale Infants
School Vision and Learning Values
We believe that the Infant years are the most important in a child’s life and certainly the most exciting. The sense of wonder and discovery as a child sets out in learning is a privilege to observe and to be a part of.
Our vision is to create an environment where every learner has the opportunity to amaze us.
Our unique focus on developing the skills of learning along with our creative, active and exciting curriculum enables all pupils to be challenged to achieve their best.
We celebrate, and are proud of, all pupils’ achievements both in and beyond the classroom.
Our staff teams are totally committed to providing pupils with the very best education possible. The teams plan a wide variety of learning opportunities in and out of the classroom that broaden pupil’s experiences and enable them to develop new and exciting skills that round them as individuals.
We strongly believe in team work. Together, children. teachers, support staff, parents, and families work as a team to give them the best possible start to life. We want everyone to:
'Work Together and Achieve Together'
Here at Carlton Vale we have worked together to develop our Learning Behaviour language and attitudes throughout the curriculum and it is incorporated right across the school. Behaviour for Learning is developing the skills and attitudes to become better learners! We have 8 key words which link into all the learning and behaviours of the school.
Our Core Learning Behaviours are:
Creative - Versatile - Independent - Resilient - Respectful - Adventurous - Persistent - Problem Solving (CVI RRAPP)
They form the bedrock of our decision making around every aspect of your child’s education.
By developing these core learning behaviours and values our children will develop the skills and attitudes to support them through their lifelong learning journey.
OFSTED 2018 – This school continues to be good
"The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.
You and your staff continue to make sure that pupils make strong academic progress from when they join the school. You provide pupils with a range of enrichment opportunities that make a positive contribution to their personal development and welfare. The school has a caring and inclusive environment supporting effectively pupils and their families whose circumstances make them vulnerable. You and your leadership team are implementing initiatives to support pupils’ emotional and mental well-being. You arranged staff training on how to support pupils’ emotional and physical needs and on how to help them develop resilience, for example. These initiatives help pupils to feel safe and develop self-confidence".
Our motto ‘Grow together, achieve together” is instrumental in our journey to outstanding.
We have some very exciting times ahead of us and we are really looking forward to experiencing and sharing them with you all.
