Badsey First School

Our Vision - The Badsey Bes

We enable our children to develop independence
in their learning journey and to grow into inquisitive,
sociable and resilient young people.

Badsey First School is a place where people want to be. 

It is a school where children and adults are valued...valued for their opinions, their beliefs, their actions. 

All stakeholders are heard and welcome to contribute.  The culture of the school is centred around mutual respect, kindness & optimism.  Responsibility is shared at Badsey First School and determination to succeed prevails. 

In order for us to achieve our vision, we have a very simple set of values, which underpin everything we do at Badsey First School: 

The Badsey Bes:

Be Responsible 

We encourage children to take responsibility for their own behaviour and learn through the language of ‘choice and consequence’. 

Positive choices earn praise and recognition; negative choices lead to reflection and discipline.

Be Kind

We insist all children in school are kind to one another and staff always look to ‘catch children being good’.

We do not tolerate any form of bullying, harassment, intimidation or racism.

Be Respectful

We uphold the rights of the individual within the school community and seek to develop high levels of mutual respect.

We treat others how we would like to be treated.

Be Determined

We work with our children to build their resilience with a determination to succeed. 

We encourage children to try new things and embrace new challenges, recognising mistakes we may make along the way are just stepping stones to greater successes.

...we honestly couldn’t be more pleased with what we’ve seen,
experienced and most importantly
how happy and thriving our child is.

  • Accept that sometimes things go wrong and that they may need to work to put them right.

Staff will:

  • Notice, recognise and appreciate all the excellent behaviours they see.
  • Be fair and ensure that everyone’s voice is heard.
  • Make sure that everyone understands what action has been taken and why.

Parents will:
