Our vision is to create a thriving school that provides a stimulating, safe and caring environment. We strive for children to become resilient and successful learners.
Our Values - develop and share British Values:
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. We change our value every half term. We share stories linked with our value in Whole School assemblies
Summer 1: Resilience
It is important to learn how to get through difficult times.
We can learn new things or find ways to get better. We can learn by making mistakes.
When things don’t go as we want them to, it can be really hard to remain resilient.
The important thing is how we adapt to the situation that we didn’t expect.
Other people including family, friends and teachers can help us when we are worried or unsure about things.
Talking to other people can help us to find ways to do things differently and stay hopeful.
There are two top definitions for sharing:
The word 'respect' comes from two Latin words: 're' meaning 'back' and 'specere', meaning 'to look'. So the meaning of our modern word seems to have developed from an idea of looking back at, regarding, or considering someone or something.
Today, the word means 'to value someone highly for what they say or do' or 'to treat people politely and thoughtfully, to show we value them.'
Our value this half term is kindness. We will be thinking about 'kind words, kind thoughts, kind deeds' and how we can support each other to be kind. During our Reading Buddy time, we will be showing kindness when we help each other with tricky words. Our School Council are working on kindness at playtime and lunchtime. If you see anybody being kind in our school, please add it to our values tree in the main reception.
We talked about cooperation in our classes and during assemblies. We learnt how to be co-operative:
The children spotted members of the school community that were demonstrating co-operation and celebrated their achievements by filling in a tag and placing it on our values tree.
