Together we persevere and innovate so every child is confident, enjoys learning and develops skills. We are unrelentingly positive and care about everyone’s wellbeing. We provide amazing opportunities and support families to improve our children’s lives and enable them to flourish.
Cliffdale Primary Academy Values are for everyone. They are the things we believe are most important to teach our children. The Cliffdale Star represents our school, and the triangles represent each school value. When we work together and practise all the values, we achieve exceptional things.
Together we Shine
Before our children can learn, they need to engage in activities. It is our job to make learning irresistible, following every child’s interests to motivate and enthuse them. We can then inspire the children to watch, think and join in!
It is so important for us to get to know all our children and their families. This ensures the children feel safe and confident when they are at school, and helps us understand every child’s strengths and needs. We enable the children to make friends and enjoy being part of a group
Our job is to show the children that communicating is worthwhile and fun! Most of our children find communicating tricky, so we have lots of ways to help them talk and reduce their frustration. For example, we use symbols to help children understand and help them ask for things they want.
We want the children to be able to do lots of things by themselves – making them feel proud and capable. The children quickly learn how to carry their own things or move around school without holding someone’s hand. We will always support the children to be successful.
Practising is the key to making progress, so we always encourage our children to try and try again! We help the children to tolerate situations they don’t like and gradually build their resilience with lots of reassurance and encouragement, so they can enjoy more things.
