Vision and Values
In this setting, children are encouraged to become confident, caring and articulate, using their aptitudes and abilities to the full. Courtesy and respect are encouraged, as is a calm and ordered environment to promote the development of social skills so that each child can be successful.
Hewens is a place where children are happy and enjoy their learning, experiencing inspirational standards of teaching which allow them each to flourish and reach their full potential.
At Hewens, we wish to promote positive attitudes in the children and amongst all other stakeholders. With this in mind, we seek to fulfil our commitment to you, unimpeded by expectations that would otherwise limit the progress of your child at school. We are committed to providing high quality education for all of our learners, ensuring that every member of the community is valued and respected, always being treated in a manner that is appropriate and just. We aim to be a caring community where everyone is safe and secure. The school rewards good behaviour, recognises success and regularly celebrates children’s achievement. We use praise to encourage good behaviour with the firm conviction that every child can become self-aware, independent and confident, both academically and socially.
We strive for excellence in all we do. Our school ethos is built around the 6 ‘R’s of:
Respectful Rational Reflective Resourceful Responsible Resilient
These ‘R’s are used as a cornerstone in how we deal with all situations at our school and how we reward our children. We believe that by demonstrating these ‘R’s every day, children will become positive members of their school and local community.
At Hewens, our priority is to promote positive relationships so that everyone can work productively together, sharing a common sense of purpose; each achieving the very best they can.
