Terrington St Clement Community School

A traditional school with traditional values where

we aspire, succeed and thrive

Our Vision & Values

At Terrington St Clement we want our learners to be aspirational, to set themselves challenging goals and to work hard, growing in confidence and acquiring the skills needed to thrive.  Working together in partnership, we can support our learners in achieving their goals.  We aim to instil in our learners the belief that learning is limitless, that the world is full of opportunities waiting to be grasped and that through effort and perseverance everyone can succeed.

Our Traditional Values

Our vision is underpinned by our traditional values.  We show respect, have good manners, take responsibility, persevere and are caring.  These values are central to all that we do.  They were devised in consultation with the whole school community and reflect our collaborative approach.  Through these values we seek to develop rounded learners who are able to make a positive contribution to society.

  • we remember to use ‘please’ and ‘thank you’
  • we open doors and move calmly around the school
  • we greet each other when we meet each morning or around the school
  • we share equipment and games

By responsibility we mean that:

  • we take ownership of our actions
  • we take ownership of our learning and try our hardest
  • we come to school equipped and ready to learn

By persevere we mean that:

  • everyone has a growth mindset (believing that effort and attitude can always help us improve)
  • we look for ways to improve
  • we make mistakes and learn from them and reflect on our learning journey
  • we keep going when at first things seem difficult
  • we think creatively and try new approaches to solve problems
