In Summer term 2016, parents were consulted regarding their thoughts on what values they and their families believed were the most important for us to teach and to live by.
The staff looked at the results of the survey, and have come up with the twelve most popular / important values to use as our focus for each half term – see below. Thank you for your input and continued support.
Along with focusing on these values in our assembly time, we will weave these values into our daily teaching and being, including our PSHE and SMSC ( Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) teaching. British Values are linked in where appropriate too.
