Goffs-Churchgate Values

Your child will learn about our four main values—Respect, Aspire, Nurture and Achieve during their time at Goffs-Churchgate. By adopting these principles, they will be able to live purposeful, happy lives outside of school and will know exactly what is expected of them both within and outside of the classroom. 

Respect -  a deeper concept than tolerance; it is the complete recognition and appreciation of difference, inclusivity, and multiculturalism. Respect means appreciating both our differences and our commonalities. Demonstrating respect involves actively attempting to comprehend experiences that differ from our own and working towards a more equitable society in which everyone is respected and afforded equal opportunity. Contributing to the local, national, and international communities also serves as an illustration of it. 

Aspire - to have high hopes, dreams, or goals. It involves deciding what you want to do and putting forth a lot of effort to get there. Any successful endeavor begins with aspiration because it provides a specific goal to strive toward. 

Nurture - essential so that children can form meaningful relationships, connect with others, and grow to feel worthy of respect. It facilitates learning, play, and communication, allowing children to flourish.  

Achieve - having a goal in life that can provide one with a feeling of happiness, contentment, and purpose. Personal development, self-assurance, and a sense of achievement are possible outcomes. Happiness and general well-being can also be influenced by setting and attaining goals. But it is crucial to keep in mind that everyone has a distinct definition of success, and that "achievement" might mean various things to different people.
