Vision and Ethos

"Inspired and Empowered"

At Gwyn Jones, we are committed to ensuring that every member of our school community is inspired and empowered each day.

We aim to inspire and empower our children by:

  • Providing excellent teaching which nurtures our children’s innate curiosity, allowing them opportunities  to take risks and to think for themselves.
  • Supporting our children to have responsibility for their own learning; to have their own opinions and the skills to articulate them.
  • Allowing all children access to a rich and broad curriculum which fully prepares them to be active, global citizens.
  • Ensuring all children participate in a variety of trips and visitors in their local and wider community.
  • Acting as role models who respect others and enjoy the rich diversity of our school family.
  • Insisting that every child is known well, safe and nurtured to achieve their personal best.

We aim to inspire and empower our staff by:

  • Providing a wide range of relevant and innovative professional learning in school which focuses on collaboration and sharing good practice, including lesson study, planning support, team teacher and action research.
  • Forging strong links with external agencies to deliver professional development - teaching schools, higher education institutes etc.
  • Giving developmental feedback with clear and specific actions for staff and leaders.
  • Establishing coaching and mentoring relationships which encourage reflection.
  • Identifying and nurturing leadership talent.
