Vision, Values & Ethos
Our vision at George Dixon Primary School simply to make the world a better place. By having a transformative impact on our children, community and colleagues we will empower them to lead peaceful, purposeful lives.
In addition to our school development plan, we have the ongoing aims of
Improving the curriculum to enrich the lives of our pupils, support our school values and generate exceptional progress. This is underpinned by a framework with social and emotional well being at its centre.
Developing parental engagement, building on the strong parental involvement we have currently, leading to improved outcomes for children, families and the community. We believe relationships are important and are currently involved in a whole school project to become a more peaceful school. Through circle times, PSHE/SMSC and taking the time to have restorative conversations, we know children will be able to do their best in their learning now and in the future.
The children and staff have worked hard to develop our school values, which we call the 7C’s: care, commitment, courtesy, courage, consideration, cooperation and communication. These 7C’s underpin everything we do at George Dixon Primary; they determine how we approach our learning and interact with others. We believe that they make our school a better place to be alongside the British Values of democracy, individual liberty, tolerance, mutual respect and the rule of law.
