Respect Self –belief Understanding Equality Relationships Excellence
Our teaching approach works with promoting key values. This creates a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement, and develops the children’s social and relationship skills that last throughout their lives.
The positive learning environment is achieved through the positive values modelled by the staff throughout school. It develops the children’s social and emotional well – being and equips them with social and relationship skills, intelligences and attitudes to succeed at school and throughout their lives.
Our school rules are intrinsically linked to our core values and thereby develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable our children to develop as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We encourage respect and consideration for others, and recognise and value the school as a safe place for learning. The staff at Yealmpton Primary recognise that inequalities exist in all levels of society and believe that, as educators, we have a crucial role to play in eliminating racism, sexism and all forms of discrimination. We can promote equality by dealing with bullying, racial abuse and sexism immediately and by educating the young people in our care without prejudice.
