We should all consider how we talk about our own bodies & use positive language. It’s easy to make a flippant negative comment & this is what young people hear. Thanks to for a great talk around body image & young minds https://t.co/hhH35X4rOH

Vision & Values

ThriveOur Vision

We believe in Nurturing Hearts and Minds through the holistic development of the whole child.

Academic rigour is important and we have high expectations of our teachers and of our learners, however, it is equally important for our young people to be emotionally literate, well-rounded individuals who are highly-employable global citizens.

Aureus School is not an exam factory, Aureus School is a space where our whole community will be supported to Grow, Learn and Flourish. Our learning experience is memorable and enjoyable, in and out of the classroom.

Our young people will become emotionally and mentally prepared for life with a toolkit of self-care strategies to maintain positive wellbeing and mental health into adulthood.
We pledge to create a space to holistically educate the whole child through:

  • Daily mindfulness practice including Mindful Art, Mindful Movement, Mindful Science and Mindful Music 
  • Safe Spaces including access to a Thrive Room, a Sensory Room and a Nurture Room
  • Holistic interventions including Art Therapy and Thrive Therapy
  • Strong relationships with staff including daily Coaching Time and a Family Dining Experience
  • Personal Development Opportunities including Martial Arts, Ballet, Choir, Cooking and Confidence Club
Nurture 20190111 100008 Thrive3


The holistic education opportunities have been carefully created as preventative strategies to support your child as they Grow, Learn and Flourish into young adulthood:

  • Our community time in the morning will prepare our students for learning - the carousel of activities will wake them up and warm them up
  • Our community lunch time ensures that everyone eats a healthy, nutritious meal
  • Our community time in the afternoon will support our students in processing their day - coaching time will support them in celebrating the highs and managing the lows
  • Our personal development time from 3.40-4.30pm will inspire and empower them to thrive

Our Values

  • We are a values-based school and received our VBE schools award in summer 2017.
  • We have 12 school values which underpin our culture and ethos.
Values Wheel Our Homily

 

  • Each value is explored for a month in our weekly assemblies and assembly reflection tasks.
  • Our homily captures why our values are important, as does our school song.
  • Our values underpin our curriculum and we look for teachable moments to embed them in the real world. For example in a Drama lesson reading Anne Frank’s Diary we may explore the values of Resilience, Diversity and Kindness when discussing how the Jews were treated by the Nazis.
  • Our library shares books which explore each value.
  • Our rewards celebrate when our values are embodied and our consequences sanction when choices contravene our values.
