Ethos

From the first moment to the very last, at North Gosforth Church of England First School we will strive to make a difference and provide every one of our pupils with the best start in life.

We believe this is about individuality of schools within our Trust, celebrating established diverse communities and bringing those individuals together with a common purpose, but not with a uniformity which inhibits individuality. Therefore North Gosforth Church of England First School will have their own community, their own identity, their own uniform, school badge and logo.

Pupils within the Trust are proud of their schools, with exceptionally positive attitudes to learning. Pupils at North Gosforth Church of England Academy will develop positive attitudes to learn. Behaviour and safety of our pupils will be outstanding and whether it is on the playground or in lessons, pupils need to learn how to resolve conflict and restore friendships. Pupils in the school council and various other groups will play an active and positive role in the life of the school. Using the principles of Restorative Practice, pupils will be encouraged to become responsible citizens and to make positive choices both in and out of school. They will be taught to care for themselves, each other and the environment and North Gosforth Church of England First School will be a place where spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding.
