On Tuesday 24 April, in front of an audience of parents and invited guests, members of Crescent School’s School Council relaunched the School Promise. Headteacher, Joe Thackway, led pupils in explaining how the Promise had been reviewed and developed and presented the new code of commitments to pupils and parents in an information meeting in the school hall.
The Crescent School has had a School Promise for many years. The first promise was introduced by former Headteacher, Mr Huw Marshall, back in 2005 and its commitments have been at the core of the Crescent’s ethos ever since.
This year the School Council reviewed the original School Promise in collaboration with pupils and staff. Every child wrote a promise and the School Council then worked with Mr Thackway, Mrs Stapleton and Mrs Monteith to use the children’s ideas to refresh and revitalise the Promise Statement.
As a school community Crescent School shares certain core values and beliefs. It seeks to foster and develop the qualities of kindness, tolerance and mutual respect in a safe and caring environment where staff and families work together to deliver an inspiring, challenging and varied curriculum.
Comments Joe Thackway, “Our new School Promise builds on the legacy of the original commitment. It expresses the school community’s shared values and challenges all our pupils to be Good Friends, Good Learners and Good Citizens. This simple set of guidelines, shared by all pupils and staff, will stand us all in good stead for the future both in school and out.”
All pupils have been presented with a specially designed School Promise card to remind them of the new commitments.
