Our School Values are
To embed our values we have opportunities for classes to explore them either through classes coming together for a whole school assembly to share their joint presentations about a value, we have been treated to a version of Aretha Franklins song 'Respect', a poem written by pupils and the Toy Story song 'You've got a friend in me', A dance from from Pinocchio, Maria's song 'I have confidence' from the Sound of Music. Joint displays and work on our sewn banners have also been important. These are regularly referred to during assemblies.
These underpin our school community code
S - stay safe and be responsible
T - try your best at all times
A - always listen carefully and follow instructions
R - respect yourself, others and property
S - say and do kind things
Our aim is for the children to be able to explain what sort of behaviour they are using and what value it is displaying. In time we would aim for this to be used at home and in the wider community of our school. We will ask children if they are showing STARS behaviour wherever they are in school.
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key British Values are:
· rule of law
· individual liberty
· mutual respect
· tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
