School Values

Our School Aims and Values



Cove Infant School is a highly successful school that prides itself on providing an excellent education for children aged 4-7 years.  Our children have the opportunity, through a values based curriculum, to learn by first hand experiences and to discover who they are in a safe, stimulating and engaging environment.  We ensure that all of the children at Cove Infant School are provided with a solid foundation for them to confidently explore learning, as well as providing the skills to encourage, inspire and empower them to develop an ‘I can’ attitude. We foster a spirit of enquiry in our children, coupled with a sense of self-worth; individual talents and contributions are valued and celebrated; areas for development are supported and addressed in a caring school environment.  We establish high standards of behaviour, reinforced by praise and underpinned by positive, moral values.


We aim to:

  •  Maintain high standards. We encourage children, staff, parents and governors to set high standards of achievement, value excellence and experience success
  • Create a school ethos that is based firmly on mutual respect, trust and tolerance
  • Celebrate diversity in all aspects of life; promoting inclusivity in all that we do at Cove Infant School
  • Offer a variety of strategies to develop each pupil as an independent as well as a co-operative learner, fostering an ‘I can’ attitude where children are keen problem solvers and are willing to take risks
  • Provide enriching, enjoyable and first – hand opportunities for all children to reach their full potential and develop key life skills within a supportive, nurturing and welcoming environment, as well as extending learning to the local community and further afield!
  • Provide a broad and balanced, well – organised curriculum, tailored to the needs of our children
  • Create an attractive and stimulating learning environment, supportive of all childrens needs
  • Enable all of our children to have the confidence and resilience to be inquisitive young people and ignite a lifelong love of learning
  • Create positive partnerships with parents and the local community
  • Encourage and celebrate all achievements within and beyond the curriculum
  • Provide a broad range of opportunities to promote a healthy lifestyle that considers and supports physical and mental well being
  • Ensure that our children are safe internet users in our ever growing digital world
  • Provide continuous professional development for all members of staff, and the Governing Body
  • Encourage the children to respect themselves, each other, the local community and the environment, allowing them to become responsible citizens
