Essential Information

We learn to treat each other with respect, show honesty, and express love for each other and value our friends, family and community.
Every day, we give our children opportunities to show responsibility, to learn though work and play, taking pride in all they do and achieve.
We expect everyone to appreciate equality and individuality, patience and determination when faced with challenges.
We understand and appreciate that friendship is one of the greatest gifts we can have and share.
With aspiration our children can reach for the stars and do anything or be anyone they choose to be!

Through trust and thoughtfulness, we aim to build a community of kindness and togetherness.

Everyone at Girnhill strives to live by our school values to make sure that we are being the best that we can possibly be!

At Girnhill all pupils are taught how values underpin everything school does and this gives a meaningful context for British Values and SMSC, supporting their understanding of how they underpin our society. As a values-based school we ensure that British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out throughout the wider values-based philosophy that infuses the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide opportunities for further understanding of these concepts so that pupils can embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application. The skills and attributes developed through the teaching of values enhance the curriculum and pupils’ learning behaviours; raise attainment; attendance and pupil wellbeing.
