Yeading Junior School

Learning, Working and Achieving Together

Character Virtues

At Yeading Junior School - the happiness, health and safety of the children are treated as priorities by all staff.

Our aims are to assist each pupil to fulfil their own potential both academically and socially and to create a caring environment where pupils are valued for who they are, not just for what they can do. We have an array of systems and people in place to assist us from Learning Mentors to Peer Ambassadors.

 

Character Education


At Yeading Junior School, Character Education is at the heart of learning and threaded through the curriculum as well as the school culture and is a part of every day school life.

Through Character Education the school engages in tailored projects which provide an important vehicle for children to develop. Character Education incorporates a range of activities and projects – embracing volunteering for a charity, caring for someone in the community, campaigning or fundraising for a specific cause.

At Yeading Junior School all children are ‘Agents of Change’.  Selected children are 'Special Agents of Change' leading the way with Social Action.   These Agents are true representatives of the ten Character Virtues which the school has embedded in its ethos. These Virtues are:

 

Resilience    Teamwork   Compassion   Respect   Volunteering   Pride   Curiosity   Reflection

Dignity   Determination

Our Character Virtues enable children to develop as strong young citizens and future leaders who make a real difference to themselves, their community and beyond.  They become reflective and curious learners who thrive in an environment where exciting opportunities enrich the curriculum.
