Attitudes, Values and Behaviours

At Usk Church in Wales Primary School we strive to create a school community that is ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) aware and trauma informed. This approach is embodied by our aspiration to build a nurturing, caring ethos which permeates our church school environment. We have developed an approach that promotes behaviour regulation and places relationships as the cornerstone for children to thrive, both academically and in relation to their wellbeing.




We all work together to make sure we all have an equal opportunity to succeed.

We believe in the potential for all to succeed and work hard to understand and remove barriers to learning. Meeting the needs of all learners is central to our vision and we plan learning and transition based on our knowledge of each individual pupil. 


At our school we:
• Ensure that all members of the school community feel safe
• Encourage relationships between all members of the school community that facilitate effective learning
• Guide children to develop a strong sense of morality that allows them to take on board the thoughts and feelings of others
• Teach children how to communicate their thoughts and feelings in a way that would be beneficial in their adulthood.



At Usk we have a strong, distinctive Christian ethos and encourage children to develop values of Trust, Humility, Truthfulness, Perseverance, Forgiveness, Responsibility, Respect, Peace, Compassion, Courage, Justice and Thankfulness. 

We ensure that children learn these values through the teachings and stories that Jesus told. 
Children have opportunities to think about and apply Christian values through religious education lessons, collective worship and as an integral part of our curriculum.
