In recent months, staff from the infant and junior schools have been working closely together with our Federated Governing body to create new vision and value statements which reflect the characteristics, ethos and aims of both schools. Originally co-created with the children, our starting points were our existing statements.
To ensure that our new vision and value statements feed into every part of school life and reflect our ethos and culture of continuous improvement for the children, every staff member was involved in this process.
It was very important to both schools that our vision statement told our ‘story’ using simple and clear language, communicating what is important to us to both children and adults.
The following child-centred vision encapsulates our commitment to every single child within Hove Learning Federation. It guides all our staff both inside and outside the classroom and keeps us all focused on the promise and magic that is inside us all.
From the depths of the ocean to the furthest reaches of the galaxy, learning at Hove Learning Federation is a magical journey. We will help you be ready for a life full of opportunities and choice, to travel down any pathway you choose and to keep going when things become tricky. Some parts of your journey will be smooth, some will be rocky, but it will always be an exciting adventure and, together, we will build the qualities you need to reach any destination. In our schools, you will become brave enough to have a go and take a risk and approach every challenge with enthusiasm, determination and perseverance.
We will support you to be proud of who you are. Your voice will always be heard and your differences will always be celebrated. We will support you to be happy, healthy and make good choices. We will support you to be a kind and thoughtful person in school and the wider community as you become a citizen of our extraordinary and ever-changing world. These things are important.
Our value statement similarly encapsulates all that we are at Hove Learning Federation and all that we believe. It is also written in accessible language for the children to understand.
Hove Learning Federation believes in:
♥ Love of learning
♥ Equality & inclusion
♥ Aiming high
♥ Respect & kindness
♥ Nurture & safety
