Vision, Aims and Values


“We want to support the teaching and learning activities of all those in our care through understanding individual needs, knowing what makes us ‘tick’, opening the door to knowledge, imagination and a love of learning, enabling all of our children and staff to be the best that they can be.‟


At Newton Hall Infants’ School we want to succeed in developing in our children:

  • Lively and enquiring minds and a love of learning;
  • Ability to work hard and to succeed at tasks both independently and with other people;
  • A quality of spirit, feeling and imagination and a sense of wonder and beauty;
  • A sense of self-respect, self-confidence and self-reliance and an awareness of the needs of others;
  • A reasonable set of personal attitudes, values and beliefs;
  • The ability to question and to argue reasonably and rationally and to think for themselves;
  • The knowledge, skills and practical abilities they will need throughout their lives as future citizens at work and play;
  • An understanding of the world and their place in it;
  • A respect for religious diversity and culture and for the moral values of others.

Our school will be a learning environment which is safe, secure, stimulating and fit for learning and which engages our parents, children and staff together in partnership to fulfil our aims.

As a result of our commitment to these aims, our children will:

We will assess progress to identify individual children’s strengths and areas for development, so we can plan the next steps in their learning. We encourage self-evaluation in our children and keep parents informed of progress and performance.

We care for the children in our school in a variety of ways. We care for:

their social and moral needs

  • by helping them to learn how to be away from home and family, often for the first time;
  • by helping them to learn how to take a turn and work with other children in class;
  • by helping them to learn how to play with others and share space and resources.

their physical needs

  • by providing a safe situation for children to work and play;
  • by providing supervision at playtime and lunchtime by caring adults;
  • by providing help and support to children when they are sad, ill or upset.

their emotional needs

  • by providing a secure and welcoming school;
  • by providing a listening ear when children need to express their worries and fears.

their spiritual needs

  • by example and encouragement from adults in school and from each other.

their educational needs

  • by providing the best quality learning experiences we can;
  • by understanding the individual needs of children;
  • by providing quality resources for children to use;
  • by teacher/adult commitment to each child.

We care in many practical ways to ensure the all-round development of the children in our school. If we all care, they learn.
