To all who have passed through its doors, Finton House is more than just a school
Pastoral care is central to the ethos of Finton House. We are a welcoming and friendly school with a happy working environment for both children and staff alike because of the excellent relationships we build with one another. We believe that happy children are more resilient and therefore do well academically, socially and emotionally.
Finton House aims to ensure that all children work and play to the best of their individual ability in an atmosphere of happiness and warmth. A clear moral code is important and staff lead by example in promoting the values of care and consideration, kindness, generosity and respect. Visitors notice the confidence, happiness and good manners of our children, but it is the feel of our school that sets us apart and makes Finton House unique.
Pastoral care at Finton House is underpinned by consistent expectations, a positive approach and good communication. Children at Finton House are expected to adhere to high standards of behaviour and work at all times in accordance with the Finton House Values and Rules.
At Finton House we aim to be our best selves every day by achieving our goals:
- Doing the right thing
Uphold our school values and treat others as we would like to be treated.
Demonstrate good manners (say 'please' and 'thank you', stand back and hold doors open).
Line up and walk around school quietly and sensibly.
Play sensibly and safely in the playground (no hanging upside down on the monkey bars, keep footballs and netballs on the pitch, no cycling or scootering, no playing on the climbing frame before and after school).
Cross roads in silence, looking and listening for traffic.
Wear the correct school uniform with pride (no nail varnish or jewellery, hair tied back).
