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 house captains which is made up from year two pupils who are elected. The year two children get to experience nominations and the voting process.
Elmtree children enjoy dressing up and collecting funds whilst participating in Red Nose day and Children in Need activities.
There are 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 Well Done Assembly. Children receive certificates for fabulous work or behaviour.
We recognise our weekly house point winners, children collect house points for a variety of achievements, both academic and pastoral.
Assemblies are held every day with a variety of topic discussions led by members of staff. Sometimes there are visitors such as Policeman, the Road Crossing Patrol Officer and local charities.
