Expectations & Values


At Whitecliffe, we promote the development of positive attitudes to learning in everything we do and have the highest expectations in regard to safety and behaviour in and around school. Together we have developed a clear set of rules as promises, to ensure expectations are well communicated and understood by children, staff and parents. Good behaviour is the responsibility of everyone at Whitecliffe.

At Whitecliffe we promise to:

  • Come to school on time, every day
  • Treat each other with respect, care for resources and our environment
  • Follow instructions and engage in learning
  • Work hard to meet our targets and give our very best in all that we do
  • Be responsible around school and within our community and represent Whitecliffe in a positive way

Our promises are continually reviewed and developed with staff and children into descriptors for expected behaviours and displayed in key areas around the school.

In addition to our high expectations, we are developing strong values together; to foster mutual respect between all of our relationships to help children grow and evolve into well rounded individuals and good citizens for the future. Our values have been established from working closely with our children to decide what we want Whitecliffe children to be famous for:

Our Values:

  • Hard working
  • Respect the rights of others
  • Caring and Kind to our friends
  • Responsible citizens in and around school
  • Sportsmanship
  • Aspirations – To be the best we can be!
  • Everyone is equal
  • I can do it! – Positive attitudes

At Whitecliffe we do not accept behaviour that is perceived as verbally and physically abusive, humiliating, bullying, racist, sexist or homophobic; this is not acceptable by or towards any child or member of staff or within the wider community.
