The Epworth Primary Mindset expects Excellence for All and for pupils to be Respectful, Honest and Kind in all that they do.
Excellence for All
Excellence is an idea, a way of thinking, a mindset, a way of behaving.
Be excellent in all that you do and expect the same of others.
Being respectful is all about the way that we treat each other. In our school we are polite, respectful and helpful regardless of who we are talking to. We look after each other and we think about how other people might be feeling. We try not to upset each other. We treat everyone well, not just our friends.
Being honest is about ‘doing the right thing’.
We try to be reliable and fair when we are working and playing so that people can depend on us. We also need to be honest about what we can and can’t do, and to learn to ask for help when we need it. This is a big part of being a learner.
Being kind is about sharing, helping and supporting others. It is about being willing to give something to help someone else, for any reason.
It means that we try to give help, our time, our friendship, even when we find it difficult.
