Values and Behaviour

Our School motto and Golden Principles underpin everything that we do and are embedded in our curriculum. Our School motto ‘Disce Prodesse’ – Learn to be of service underpins our teaching and learning, and provides an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens in modern day Britain.

At QEGS Primary our vision is to allow the pupils to ‘Be the best that they can be’. In 2021, QEGS Primary wanted to change our Primary School Values to something more meaning and memorable. We made the decision to change from 5 values to 3. With input from staff, pupils and parents and carers, we created our 3 Golden Principles (Known as the three R’s) ‘Ready’, ‘Respectful’ and ‘Resilient’. These were launched in September 2021 and are clearly displayed throughout the Primary School. We have high expectations in all areas, especially behaviour and achievement.

These 3 core values were revealed to the whole school in an assembly led by our prefects and staff being successfully embedded throughout the school.

We know how vital working in partnership with parents and carers really is, in order for pupils to find school a positive and rewarding experience. We believe that if we all work together, then the pupils will enjoy and achieve more. We enjoy welcoming in our parents and carers throughout the school year for events such as homework shares, performances and story, play and rhyme sessions. We also welcome parents and carers in for special events including ‘Careers Day’ where we are always seeking parents in any job to come and tell our pupils all about it and share their experiences to inspire our younger generation.
