At Chellaston Infant School, we believe that everyone should reach their full potential in a safe, fun and happy environment which promotes independence, self-worth and excellence.

Everyone is a learner whose values are respected.

As an infant school we have the vital role of establishing positive attitudes to learning which will endure throughout a child’s school career and into adult life. It is our role to teach skills and attitudes which will allow children to become actively involved in their own learning; we will teach children “how” to learn, as well as deciding with them what they learn within our school and national curriculum.

In exploring what it means to be a responsible citizen our curriculum promotes the fundamental British values of:

  • Democracy; respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process.
  • The rule of law; respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England and support for equality of opportunity for all.
  • Individual liberty; support and respect for the liberties of all within the law
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs.
