Values and Ethos
At Magna Carta we take pride in developing outstanding teaching and learning by holding the highest expectations of all our pupils. We challenge all children to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment within a vibrant and enriched curriculum. Our students are given time to explore subjects and develop deeper understanding.
We celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking, ensuring children are not frightened to make mistakes. We encourage children to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to quality feedback. Children are praised for hard work, determination and having a positive attitude.
In order to create an inclusive school where everyone can flourish, whatever their background, we promote an ethos of respect and empathy, where diversity is valued and celebrated – both within school and the wider world. Safeguarding and welfare is extremely important and pupils are taught the virtues of kindness, appreciation and what it means to be courageous
High quality teaching is priority and the relationship between staff and children underpins inspirational, supportive and effective teaching and learning.
It is our aim for all children to leave as independent learners with self-belief and an abiding respect for others. We aim to instil a lifelong love for learning and a strong grounding for future success.
