At Pinehurst, our core values are the 3E’s – Experience, Excel and Enjoy. As a consequence of our values, at Pinehurst we believe that children should learn to reach their full potential and develop new skills that empower them for life in order to become confident, valuable, members of society.
We create a supportive, safe, challenging, caring and happy environment where all contributions are valued. Lessons are motivating and fun and independence is encouraged hence children become reflective, self-learning team members with a positive sense of wellbeing and a love of learning.
We would expect pupils to act safely and feel safe in school, including that they understand the issues relating to all forms of bullying. Children should be able to work in an environment which is free from discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
We want Pinehurst to be a place where diversity is celebrated and individuals feel valued and respected for who they are. We aim to provide an environment in which our children are secure and confident, irrespective of their age, race, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief and socio-economic circumstances.
Children should feel confident to seek support from school should they feel they or others are unsafe.
Central to our Behaviour Policy at Pinehurst is Restorative Practice
