  • Striving high in all areas of the curriculum - trying your best, challenging yourself
  • Being aspirational, high achieving (all types of abilities are recognised and valued – we find and celebrate individual talent and strengths) – offering a full curriculum and recognising the importance of extra-curricular activities.
  • Preparing children to learn from mistakes, adapt after failure (seeing it as an opportunity to grow) and to achieve goals now and in the future – growth mindset, resilient, inspired, confident, independent, co-operative.
  • Being principled – knowing right from wrong, having morals, being global citizens.
  • Respectful, healthy, valued relationships for all - team work – all working towards the same goal – (children, staff, parents)
  • Every day being important
  • Children having the confidence to be who they want to be
  • Risk-taking, initiative, tenacity, honesty, not being afraid to have a go or ask for help.
  • Rigour, consistency across the board (discipline, structure and boundaries).
  • Fairness and being supportive of each other.
  • Healthy children (a balanced diet and exercise)
  • Communication – we are open
  • Freedom of, and space for, respectful speech and opinion
  • Being inclusive and compassionate – giving equal opportunity, understand difference and ensure everyone is able to achieve, regardless of different needs and backgrounds.

The Foulds Community does not believe in:

  • All work and no play
  • Over emphasis on teaching to a test – hard and fast results over a balanced and happy individual
  • Controlling or micro-managing others
  • Unfairness
  • Accepting racism, homophobia, bullying, making fun of each other.
  • “I can’t”
  • A sense of entitlement
  • Everything being the teacher’s responsibility
  • All children being the same
  • Communication being used in a negative way
  • Homework for the sake of it
