Aspiration, which is at the heart of our curriculum, inspires and challenges all children to reach their full potential through rich and exciting opportunities. This will prepare them to excel at secondary school and then attend a further educational institution or career path of their choice.
We value individual well-being and happiness, keeping every child safe, building character, resilience and developing the skills for lifelong learning.
OUR ASPIRE VALUES
We realise our vision with a set of core values - that permeate all that we do. From the moment a student or member of staff arrives at Thomas Harding we ask them to live these values: These are values that underpin society in the modern world and reflect who we are as a school, recognising every individual for who they are, regardless of starting points and backgrounds.
Aspiration – Our children, staff and families understand that regardless of starting point, we can all work towards a better future. Aspirations are limitless and they encourage us to strive for more.
Success- Our children, staff and families work together for individual success, with clear boundaries and very high expectations of behaviour, alongside positive praise and inspirational opportunity for all
Pride – Our children, staff and families are proud of who they are, their achievements and the community that they live in. They have high expectations of themselves and others.
Integrity - Our children, staff and families are open, honest and trustworthy, they show commitment to what is right and demonstrate respect for themselves, others and our community.
Resilience- Our children, staff and families are confident, resilient and independent learners who have growth mind-sets and are able to communicate effectively with others
Equality- Our children, staff and families demonstrate a pride in our diversity and always feel valued and equal in every respect, regardless of starting points, background, gender, culture or religion.
