Ethos & Values
Offord Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We aim to provide an inclusive, happy, stimulating and challenging environment where everyone's potential is valued, enabling them to become confident members of the wider community with respect for themselves and others.
We are committed to:
- making learning irresistible and encouraging lively enquiring minds
- creating enthusiastic and independent learners
- developing the whole child, honouring the diversity of each individual
- encouraging the active involvement of all members of the school community
We encourage everyone to aim high, have fun and be the best they can be. We provide a secure, happy, caring and stimulating environment where we aim to inspire everyone for life.
At Offord we welcome and uphold our duties under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in relation to age (as appropriate), disability, ethnicity, gender (including issues of transgender, and of maternity and pregnancy), religion and belief, and sexual identity. We promote community cohesion in line with our duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006.
We recognise that these duties reflect international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, and the Human Rights Act 1998.
