Policy for Display
Our Vision: At North Baddesley Infant School we are committed to valuing and nurturing each child as an individual who will achieve their best and develop an enthusiasm for lifelong learning. Our vision is for the children in our school to grow into responsible, caring and fulfilled adults who actively and positively contribute to the society in which they live. We are committed to raising standards, values and self esteem for all those involved with our school through cultivating a secure, yet exciting environment that is positive, supportive, stimulating and enriching.
In this way, we are happy, valued and achieving together.
Our policy for display supports this by:
- Celebrating learning, achievement and effort.
- Valuing pupils’ work and engendering a sense of pride and self worth.
- Creating a stimulating, exciting and aesthetically pleasing learning environment.
- Sharing work with the whole school community, thereby enabling them to gain an insight into the diversity of work going on in school.
- Helping raise standards and developing continuity and progression throughout the school.
- Supporting and enriching learning and encouraging questions that provoke learning.
- Demonstrating progression across the key stages.
- Encouraging children to take an interest in each others’ work.
- Showing examples of attainment in all curriculum areas.
- Reflecting the diversity of our pupils.
- Promoting equal opportunities, taking account of stereotypes and gender balance and reflecting the multicultural diversity of our society where appropriate.
- Ensuring displays continue to stimulate interest and curiosity.
