Visions and Values
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do.
They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils to be confident, happy citizens. At Wirksworth we want to create lasting, happy memories which will nurture your child in becoming a successful and happy individual.
We try to create this ethos through our six core values:
These school values together with the British Values are what we use to develop the whole child through our assemblies and school ethos. Over the four years your child will attend our school, we want to work alongside you to support your child to grow to be independent, confident pupils as they leave for secondary school.
Creative. Curious. Caring. We make very moment count.
To prepare children for high school and beyond we have our school motto: "Creative. Curious. Caring. We make every moment count." We are encouraging our creative talents through music, art and sports, and we use this to develop more links with Wirksworth community by being part of the Wirksworth Arts Festival; performing at the church Christmas events and attending regular sporting events at Anthony Gell school.
Our values help us to be caring, as well as raising money for charities such as Autism Week and fair trade, and supporting at Wirksworth memory café.
Developing further our curiosity and wonder of the world we are developing forest schools, as well as improving our provision of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) by attending events such as the Rolls Royce STEM day.
These are a few of the activities we are taking part in to create well-rounded members of our school and community.
If you feel you can help develop these areas please come into school and share your ideas and thoughts- no idea is too small- from knitting to building a spaceship- let’s think anything is possible to create the best education we can for the children at Wirksworth Junior School.
