Our Ethos

At George White Junior School we are aiming to develop learners who are good positive members of our community and citizens of our world who are leaders of kindness and respect. We want our children to look positivity outwards and develop an awareness and curiosity about the wider world beyond their immediate environment.

We want our children to have characteristics of being confident and knowledgeable to be aspirational about their future lives to achieve their goals. We want them to attain high standards in reading and writing and maths and make connections and enjoy their learning. We want our children to develop a positive mindset in order to be creative, flexible, resilient and respectful thinkers who can easily adapt and learn independently.  We want our children to have the resilience and confidence to know it is ok to make mistakes, we learn and grow from these and this is part of their individual learning experience to reach their high aspirational goals.

We are proud to celebrate children’s achievements both in school and beyond school. We celebrate achievement in weekly celebration assemblies and weekly class talk time. It is important to us that children follow their own interests and passions having the confidence and self-belief to be proud of these.

We want our children to develop into healthy adults both physically and emotionally who have an open-minded positive attitude that enables them to make good choices and decisions in life.

Above all, we want them to become positive, confident and happy citizens.
