WESTBOURNE PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL
VALUES AND LEARNER SKILLS
ARROW Values- Accountability – Respect – Resilience – Opportunity – Wellbeing
CCC Skills - Critical Thinking – Communication - Collaboration
An arrow symbolizes reaching your goals and achieving your targets. An arrow can only move forward by first being pulled backwards where it sits under tension before it can be released. Growing and learning can feel difficult at times, it means it’s building the force to launch you into something great. So focus and keep aiming!
Our values were developed in 2021 led by our 8 student captains and vice captains as part of student agency. They worked closely with leadership, teachers, supports staff, Education Committee and community to identify these through a number of workshops, lessons and meetings. These were borne from the 16 Habits of Mind and the old school values (FRESH) which were part of the school since 2005. The core elements were taken from these and matched with the contempory learning at our school and ARROW-CCC was introduced. Our 4 specialist teachers each taught ARROW values lessons in 2022, which coupled with the classroom based lessons and everyday practice to embed these in our school culture.
