Values and Learning Goals

Belmont Values

At Belmont, we have adopted the Olympic Values as those which we wish to inform the choices we make about how we conduct ourselves. We understand values are 'a way of being'. These seven values are:

  • Determination
  • Equality
  • Inspiration
  • Respect
  • Courage
  • Excellence
  • Friendship

Our pupils are taught about these values in weekly acts of collective worship and through the curriculum.

Belmont Learning Goals

The IPC Personal Goals underpin those individual qualities and learning dispositions we believe children will find essential in the 21st century. They help to develop those qualities that will enable children to be at ease with the continually changing context of their lives. Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into the learning tasks within each unit of work, and referenced at the end of every task to signpost opportunities for teachers to further develop them. There are 8 IPC Personal Goals:

  • Enquiry
  • Resilience
  • Morality
  • Communication
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Co-operation
  • Respect
  • Adaptability


Teachers weave the learning goals into all of their lessons and help children to reflect on what might be essential to allow them to be successful. These are also taught in our weekly acts of collective worship.
