Core Principles

Our Core Principles


At Ambergate Primary School we have Seven Core Principles, which guide us in all we do and enable us to achieve our vision:


Be Honest

We always tell the truth. We can be trusted to be honest, to say what we mean and to do what we say.


Be Caring

We care for others, do good things that benefit others and remember that the world does not exist for us alone.


Be Determined

We always work hard to be the best that we can be in all aspects of our lives.


Be Respectful

We always respect others, even if their beliefs and opinions are very different to our own. We consider other people’s feelings in everything that we do.


Be Humble

We try to be the best we can be without showing off and we encourage others to be the best they can be, without criticising their efforts.


Be Responsible

We accept responsibility for what we say, what we think and what we do.


Be Brave

We do the right thing, even when it is hard. We stand up for what is right and we help each other to overcome our fears.

  • Strategies used for behaviour management and discipline will take into consideration the intended outcomes of the chosen strategy and the possible impact of the chosen strategy
