Since September 2013 we have been a values based school. This means that rather than have lists of rules, we have shared British Values which the children learn about throughout the year.
We will not write rules like,”look after each other” because through the learning around the value of care they will learn this anyway.
Life is varied and complex. We want to give our children the values by which to live their lives, both inside and outside school. No single rule on it’s own will do this.
However if a child subscribes to the idea of being caring then they will apply this in every situation that they come across.
The teaching of Values is our key vehicle for delivering learning about Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education. Through our school values the teaching contributes hugely to behaviour and welfare, including physical, mental and personal well-being, safety and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Our pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development ensures that they are prepared to be reflective about and responsible for their actions as good citizens.
