We believe the ethos of the school should be built on a foundation of core values. These will be embedded on a monthly basis along side the rights throughout the curriculum and will also be addressed in assemblies and Collective Worship. Our values are the basis for the social, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and moral development of the whole child. Each week, one child per class is awarded a coveted Headteacher's Award linked to them displaying the monthly value and right.
Our new rights and values - written By James Samuel, Oskar Williams, Melissa Hughes and Evelyn Hamel
On 21st September, we had a discussion with Mrs John about changing some of the values and rights. We decided on having some new values and new rights for the year ahead such as generosity, creativity, kindness, and thoughtfulness. We mixed up some of the values from last year and added some new ones.
Each month, we will be focussing on a new right and value. The rights will be explored in assemblies and in classrooms, with Headteacher awards being given to children that have been nominated by their class teachers.
Our values and rights for 2023-2024 are below:
Your right to meet with friends and join groups and clubs
Your right to follow your own religion
Your right to say what you think should happen and be listened to
Your right to a house, food and clothing
You have a right to life and grow up to be healthy
You should not be harmed and you should be looked after and kept safe
Your right to a name and nationality
Everyone who works with children should always do what is best for each child
Your right to relax and play
Your right to become the best you can be
All children should be treated equally
