Vision & Values

Our Vision is to take our children on a journey of discovery and adventure that ignites a passion for learning, challenges their thinking and excites their imagination.

At Upminster Infant School, we learn and grow together. On the journey we will develop four key areas. They are: the individual; skills for life; the world around us; and our community.

Values of Upminster Infant School:

  • Respect
  • Kindness
  • Pride
  • Imagination
  • Effort

Why is this important?

Our Vision and Values are the foundation for all work and learning in the school.  Therefore, they underpin the principles that determine our approach to behaviour and discipline within the school and online applies to all pupils, staff, governors, parents and visitors.

School Values

We reward these qualities by awarding value points to the children. Jade, Sapphire and Diamond and certificates are awarded when children achieve 30, 60 and 120 points. We also celebrate these values in our weekly celebration assembly and the children take home the class mascot for a week.

The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.” The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values were reiterated in 2014.
