In delivering the above throughout all the experiences children will have in Newark Nursery School, it is our values that underpin who we are and how we are with each other in our everyday lives – they are so essential. Following consultation with staff, children and parents, here is a common list of values that we will endeavour to adhere to.
We are going to endeavour to ……….
- make sure the children have fun when they are learning and be enthusiastic
- always be understanding
- respect everyone we deal with
- create a safe and happy environment
- be professional at all times
- be a supportive team member
- Respect confidentiality at all times.
We comply and actively engage with statutory requirements and codes of practice [QI 1.2 Fulfilment of statutory duties]
