At St Cuthbert's, we acknowledge that the experiences provided for children in their primary years has a major impact on their future wellbeing and success. It is for this reason, we have made a whole school commitment to the teaching and development of character traits, attributes and behaviours which underpin achievement and success; endeavouring to ensure that developing ‘character’ goes hand in hand with high educational aspirations and achievement.
Through our rich and exciting curriculum, we focus on teaching pupils to be their best selves, to take pride in their work, and to be positive members of the school, and greater global communities.
We want to create children who thrive on challenge, love learning, respect each other and have attributes that will ensure that they will be valued members of our society.
Our Values Assemblies teach pupils about the personal qualities valued in society. Assemblies also enable pupils to explore issues relating directly to rules, behaviour and bullying.
We hold a weekly Celebration Assembly where we celebrate children’s classroom achievements. Each week teachers choose pupils to receive certificates for a range of attributes, both personal and academic. In these assemblies we present Headteacher Awards, St Cuthbert's Awards and celebrate any of our school team or individual sporting achievements.
