Our Values

“Thanks to Eden Park, my daughter has thrived. Best teachers and teaching assistants ever! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!” (School report PARENT FEEDBACK, 2022)

Our school is driven by an agreed set of core values which are shared by all members of our school community.  Staff use the values to support delivery of the curriculum. The values have a high profile in the school as visual images, a set of guideline statements,  and also within the language adults use. Assemblies and rewards are built around them.

We have created a Framework for each of the values, supporting staff to see how the value can be developed. As such, at Eden Park, we actively teach our core values rather than just expect children to demonstrate them.

They are represented for the children as five superhero characters:

Isabelle Independence

Children are encouraged to: be confident, think for themselves, take risks, persevere, ask questions, make decisions, solve problems, make connections and communicate their ideas. 

Toby Teamwork

Children are encouraged to: communicate, listen, co-operate and work together as a team with equal responsibility and with clear roles. They are responsible for both their own learning and that of their team members.

Crystal Creativity

Children are encouraged to question and challenge. They will make connections and see relationships, envisaging what might be, exploring ideas and keeping options open, reflecting critically on ideas, actions and outcomes.

Roger Respect

Children are encouraged to: be aware of others, to have empathy, to understand and respect the natural world and to think reflectively.

Willow Wellbeing

Children are encouraged to be reflective and thoughtful members of the community who can focus on the positives of everyday challenges. 

"We are very happy with the school. Our children are happy, well supported and enjoying their learning." (Parent Survey, 2020)

"As parents we are really pleased that our child has a solid understanding of core values and is praised for being a good person, as well as preforming academically. He feels happy and comfortable, and as a result is excelling." (Parent Survey, 2021)
