Ocklynge Junior School has a very strong ethos that is underpinned by its own core values where we are responsible, respectful, reflective and resilient.
In general terms this is what we are trying to achieve with the children in our care:
To help the children towards the realisation of their full potential.
To help the children to develop enquiring minds and the ability to listen, concentrate and apply themselves to tasks.
To develop children’s self-reliance, confidence, and the ability to work both independently and co-operatively.
To appreciate and value each child’s contribution and celebrate their achievements.
To instil respect and understanding for religious and moral values and tolerance of races, religions and ways of life.
To help the children learn courtesy, good manners, and consideration for others.
We are Responsible - We work hard, are helpful, reliable, look after property and co-operate with others.
We are Respectful - We are polite, well mannered, considerate, gentle and understanding of others.
We are Reflective - We are patient, honest, kind, good listeners, forgiving and admit when we have made a mistake.
We are Resilient - We do not give up, we try to sort our problems calmly and give things a go.
