Values

When you walk around our school it is clear that we have a caring, kind and well-mannered team (pupils, parents, governors and staff).

The staff and pupils have decided on a set of values that we would like to focus on each month. This ensures that all our pupils, even the youngest ones understand why they are behaving a certain way and also prepares us for life in the outside world. We decided on a list of 22 values. We will have a 2 year rolling programme that fits in with our SEAL programme based on social and emotional well being. Again if you think that there is a value missing that our children will need to learn about please add to the list below.
