Our school family is proud to be inclusive. We encourage respect and equality, valuing each and every member. We treat each other with kindness and build relationships on a foundation of trust and honesty.
Life and learning at Scoill Vallajeelt is inspiring for both pupils and staff. Everyone feels included and valued, creating a safe environment so that challenge and growth are expected. Our inspirational curriculum is child-initiated and enhanced by stimulating learning environments. Teachers have subject confidence and use this to create meaningful lessons. Children are supported by their families, the staff and each other to reach their full potential. Staff provide helpful, positive feedback which nurtures self esteem and brings us together as learners. Staff are supportive of each other.
We are making a positive contribution to our national and international community by teaching a curriculum connected to real world experiences, understanding and celebrating diversity and using cultural expertise from the community. Our school community is proud of our Manx heritage and identity and we use this Manx context to enhance learning. We teach cultural, local and global awareness and challenge stereotypes of cultures and countries. Pupil voice is important to our community.
In preparing our school family for the future, we encourage and embed a culture of growth mindset alongside teaching the 6Rs, promoting resilience and viewing failing as an important part of learning. We invite challenge and value physical and mental health equally. A positive mental attitude underpins our ethos and we work with outside agencies to safeguard pupils and support families. As a school family, we have a collective responsibility to prepare for our future. We enjoy lots of community events and our wider family contributes enthusiastically to all areas of school life.
