The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all members of the school community to share in this commitmentEveryone at St George’s C of E (VA) Infant School wants the school to be a happy, successful and safe place to learn.
As an inclusive church school, all God’s children are valued and we will strive to give all our pupils the right start in life to enable them to become competent and confident adults able to live their own lives and contribute to society. We will endevour to provide a climate where children learn to co-operate with others; care for their peers and environment; and to respect the fact that not everyone looks, feels or thinks the same as we are all created in God’s image. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same.
The core Christian value of love underpins all that we do at the Northam Federation. Through this, all members of our community, aspire to be, and encourage others to be, the best they can be: the person God created them to be. To achieve this we adhere to the values of our school moto: ‘To learn everyday, to help each other and be happy,’ by being ready to learn, respectful of others and staying safe.
Be ready, Be respectful, Be safe
In our Christian environment it is important that an attitude of compassion, love and forgiveness is evident throughout the school. At St George's C of E (VA) School learning about appropriate behaviour, including understanding right and wrong, is based on Christian teaching. Pupils and staff speak of conflict & disagreement being dealt with fairly and compassionately based on Christian principles of forgiveness and a fresh start.
