“Small school, big family.”
A warm welcome to Bitterley Church of England Primary Academy School. Our aim is to create a happy and secure environment where our children will always be encouraged to do their personal best. We provide a broad, balanced education and place a great deal of emphasis on following shared values. Our church is a very important part of this. We relish the chance to be at the centre of our local community and work hard to do all that we can in this regard.
We hope that our website is a useful tool. It can be used for finding information and discovering what happens at school during your child’s education. In addition we hope that this website provides you with the opportunity to be a part of all that we do. Our school is a family which includes the children, staff, parents, governors, aunts, uncles, grandparents and everyone who is part of the community of Bitterley Primary School.
Learning Behaviours for Life
We believe in preparing our children for the demands of life from an early age. A key part of this is our chosen Learning Behaviours for Life. They are: Motivation, Focus, Independence, Resilience, Independence, Reflection and Courage!
Since September 2013 we have been a values based school. This means that rather than have lists of rules, we have shared British Values which the children learn about throughout the year.
We will not write rules like,”look after each other” because through the learning around the value of care they will learn this anyway.
Life is varied and complex. We want to give our children the values by which to live their lives, both inside and outside school. No single rule on it’s own will do this.
However if a child subscribes to the idea of being caring then they will apply this in every situation that they come across.
