As a school, we have adopted the High Performance Learning framework (HPL) and have worked to align this with our school values in order to reflect the context and culture of our school whilst making the most of contemporary thinking in learning and teaching.

At the heart of our school are a set of core values under the Chapelford framework, some of which are values adopted from the High Performance Learning framework:

  • Collaborative (HPL)
  • Helpful
  • Aspirations
  • Perseverance (HPL)
  • Enterprising (HPL)
  • Listening
  • Fearless
  • Open-minded (HPL)
  • Resilience (HPL) 
  • Dynamic

These unique values build on our school ethos to 'Learn, Achieve and Respect' and underpin all aspects of our curriculum and school life. In line with this, each half term we celebrate an aspect of our school ethos, which link directly to our core values above. This gives the children the chance to explore and learn more about each value through an assembly, which is then revisited throughout the week within classrooms. Our core values also link directly to our reward system, which gives the children the opportunity to be recognised for demonstrating them with the reward of earning class dojos and achieving a values certificate each week in our celebration assembly.  

In addition to this, our Character Curriculum, called Commando Joe, provides children with essential life skills and character skills; providing children with the foundations to achieve, be resilient and make great choices for life- inside and outside of school. Commando Joe is delivered at least once a half term to the children and is a chance for children to personally develop, as well as reviewing the progression of the High Performance Learning values.

British Values

The DfE have reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

At Chapelford Village Primary School, British values are promoted across many areas including school assemblies, Religious Education and PSHE sessions as well as within the wider teaching of the curriculum. We believe our school values compliment British values in many ways. As a school, we promote good health and fitness, perseverance, optimism and a “can-do” attitude in all. We celebrate each child’s success and encourage them to take pride in their own, as well as others’, achievements. We engage children in a creative curriculum that is tailored to their needs and reflects the context and community in which they live. At all times we seek to inspire children with a love of learning which will remain with them throughout their lives. Together with our parents, governors and the wider community, we aim for all children to succeed to the very highest standards. Children have opportunities to work both individually and collaboratively, giving them confidence, skills, independence and the self-esteem needed to be successful in a rapidly developing world. In order to fulfil our school vision, we seek to constantly adapt and improve, listen to parents and children and have ongoing evaluation and debate amongst stakeholders.

As well as actively promoting British values, we are also proactive in challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values, including ‘extremist’ views.

In 2011, the government defined British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.  We promote these values through our own school values, curriculum and enrichment activities.
