Chater Junior School

Values and Aims

Our aim is Making Lives Better. We are committed to providing an all-round education. We aim to inspire children’s minds with a love of learning and academic knowledge. Enhancing their well-being and character education. Developing problem solving, critical thinking and practical skills. We encourage children to become life-long learners, ready to impact and make a positive contribution to our world.

As a school community we have four core values: integrity, resilience, collaboration, and passion. These shape the ethos of our school and are central to all that we do.

To further understand and internalise these values, we have broken down each of them into specific behaviours that we actively promote and encourage among our pupils. By living out these behaviours, our pupils will not only embody our core values but also contribute positively to our school community.
