values and ethos
INDIVIDUALITY - COMMUNITY - RESPONSIBILITY
Our staff and pupils develop themselves by working together to uphold our values - we believe that learning is a life-long journey. Each half-term, based on pupils' needs, we decide on a new value around which we focus much of our collective worship, RE, and PSHE learning. We explore how our values impact our daily life and the lives of other people locally, nationally and globally. Each value is linked to one or more of our three main values: Individuality, community and responsibility. The document below explains how we hope our three main values will impact on everybody's daily lives.
Spring 2018 - RESPECT
We have talked about how everybody in our school communiy deserves equal respect and how we can all show respect. We have also talked about having respect for ourselves and how we can try to develop a positive view of our bodies and our talents. More recently, we have talked about how we should respect authoritative figures. We looked at the qualitities of such people and the responsibilities that they have. (We talked about how we don't always like our mum's and dad's decisions, but we should respect them!) The children have considered one of the 10 commandments - use God's name respectfully, not as a curse or a swear word in bad situations.
