Our Vision and Values
Love your neighbour as yourselves. Matthew 22:39
Let us encourage one another. Hebrews 10:25
Wheldrake with Thorganby C.E. Primary School nurtures all children and adults to become lifelong learners, building a thirst for knowledge, encouraging excellence and fostering creativity through a varied and exciting curriculum. Our school Christian values of faith, hope and love underpin everything we do and are an umbrella of other values. We celebrate local, global and cultural diversity in our ever changing society.
At Wheldrake with Thorganby CE Primary School, we recognise that understanding our emotions is a key aspect of understanding and managing behaviour. Our 3 school rules, Ready, Respect and Safe throughout everything we do are the foundation of our school community.
We use The Zones of Regulation® programme throughout school. The programme was designed by an occupational therapist (Leah Kuypers, 2011). The programme teaches children about self-regulation by categorising all the different ways we feel and the different states of alertness we experience into four coloured zones.
The programme also provides a range of strategies that allow children to become more aware of and independent in regulating their emotions.
