Our Values

In 2014 we changed our school values in consultation with pupil’s parents and governors. Everyone at the time voted for the ones they felt most represented our school. The conclusion was overwhelmingly positive and as a result our whole school community values are as follows:

  • Care
  • Respect
  • Share
  • Enjoy
  • Friendship

This list reads well if it is phrased as ‘If you care, respect and share, you enjoy friendship’. 

The school now has a value of the week which links into assemblies and class lessons. The weeks value is displayed in the hall and the school office and will be relayed to you as parents via the weekly newsletter. Lunchtime supervisors, teachers and support staff give value beads to our children as a way of recognising when they are carrying out our values in day to day work and play.  All adults in our school community will also be expected to adhere to our values.

If you would like to know more about our values, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher.
