Core Purpose

Our core purpose defines what we stand for and promise to deliver to our children and school community. This has been created in consultation with our staff, children and parents. The following sets out how we intend to achieve this:

Our Mission Statement:

A place where excellence, pride and ambition is at the heart of all we do.

School Values:

Our values are the things that are most important to us and define the way in which we conduct ourselves. Our 4 main school values of: Respect, Team Spirit, Resilience and Resourcefulness are each broken down into the behaviours we aim to see in our children. We have a reward system that recognises and celebrates children's conduct and behaviour linked to our school values. Our values are featured regularly in assemblies and embedded within class-based learning opportunities.

British Values

At Southgate Primary School we uphold and actively promote fundamental British Values, as directed by the DFE, through our spiritual, moral and cultural education, encompassing our Unicef Rights Respecting Schools work and the PSHE SEAL programme.

Lord Nash, in November 2014 Guidance on promoting British Values, said:

"A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society, who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.

We want every school to promote the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.

This ensures young people understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain."

At Southgate Primary School we actively promote British values through our school and class charters, the curriculum and teaching. We promote respect and tolerance for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles. We are fully committed to preparing children for becoming responsible citizens of the future.
