At Elmtree we demonstrate tolerance, respect and acceptance.
Children learn about right and wrong, respect for the law and other people. They are encouraged to be responsible for their own behaviour and show tolerance of different cultural traditions. Children are inspired to develop their self esteem and self confidence. Everybody is encouraged to take part in local events and contribute to the local community.
At Elmtree we have a school council which is made up from 2 children from each class. Each class votes twice a year to select their council members.
Please take a look at the following pages. http://www.elmtreeschoolandnursery.co.uk/school-council/
Elmtree children enjoy dressing up and collecting funds whilst participating in Red Nose day and Children in Need activities.
There are twice yearly school fayres and the children and parents are very generous in their support of time and donations. The children enjoy finding out which class has won the longest bottle line award.
Every week we recognise children's achievements in a virtual Celebration Assembly. (Prior to Covid 19 Parents, family members and friends were invited to celebrate with us in school). Children receive certificates for fabulous work or behaviour. There are also awards given by Lunchtime Teachers for being helpful, brave and being a good friend. Children are encouraged to bring in certificates and awards from home to share with the rest of the school.
Virtual assemblies are held every day with a variety of topic discussions led by members of staff. Prior to Covid 19 we were lucky enough to have had assemblies by the local Police, the Road Crossing Patrol Officer and local charities.
A weekly attendance award is given to the class with the best attendance and a monthly trophy is awarded to the class with the most children who walk to school daily.
