Values and Beliefs
- As an institution we aim to provide a system of high quality education, allowing each of our pupils to develop academically and socially. We encourage learners to be independent, developing an understanding of the local, national and international environment. A happy school environment is a productive one, with staff and pupils showing consideration for one another, building on an atmosphere of positive moral values and encouraging self-awareness and creativity in the rapidly changing world we live in.
- In today’s ever changing environment it is of the upmost importance that pupils can relate learning from school to real life situations. They must have the willingness and freedom to rise to all challenges and continually pursue knowledge and exchange ideas.
- EBIS provides a secure, well-resourced, stimulating and purposeful learning, striving to nourish each child as a unique individual, instilling independence and ambition in the creation of responsible and confident global citizens.
- We encourage pupils to fulfill their potential yet, continually be challenged. They should value their role as a member of the school community, and foster cooperation and mutual respect in the home-school partnership. In order to do this, pupils should be able to think critically. A successful leader will have developed communicational and organizational skills; they will take responsibility for their own decisions while being a cooperative and trustworthy team player. EBIS aims that each pupil should be self-disciplined and motivated for any situation that arises, they should show perseverance and automatically self-reflect to evaluate the outcome.
At EBIS,we ensure that our pupils grow in an atmosphere of valuing their own self, showing empathy and reflect confidence in all aspects of their daily lives.
Positive pastoral care at EBIS is capitalized through:
- Positive relationship between teachers and pupils where teachers respect and value pupils ‘opinions and contributions.
- Healthy and cooperative relationship among pupils whether inside or outside the classroom. Our pupils are consistently taught to work with peers valuing their contributions. Their achievement is always recognized and celebrated.
- All school members work hard to maintain the use of positive approaches to secure good behaviour standards. Our disciplinary procedures are clear and acknowledged by pupils and parents, thus viewed as a fair and balanced one.
Teaching for Excellence here at EBIS, It is an inclusion-incentivized programme where we honour all contributions whether this be academic, character or ability driven.
