At The Avenue Primary School we pride ourselves on providing a caring and friendly environment. Every child is encouraged to achieve their very best, having high expectations of themselves academically and socially, whilst understanding the contribution they can make to their school and the wider community.
Our School Motto, as created by the pupils and staff is:
We Learn We Grow We Shine
Recently, we have re-established our school values, refining what were our ‘Golden Rules’. We now have five ‘Values’. Having worked with all stakeholders, we established values that spell out ‘SHINE’, linking back to our motto of ‘We learn, we grow, we shine’.
Our values are ‘Show Respect, Honesty, Independence, Never give up and Excellence‘. Staff refer to these throughout the school day and praise children when these are demonstrated. Linked to this, we have a half termly SHINE Champion celebration, where children are nominated by staff for showing our values and for showing ‘The Avenue Way’.
Our Mission Statement
Working in partnership with our children, community, staff, parents, governors we will provide a rich and stimulating school environment that equips all of our children with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure that they are the best prepared to competently and confidently face their futures.
