School Values

The school values; RESPECT, COURAGE, INTEGRITY, COMPASSION AND HOPE, are key to our identity as a Church of England school community. Our School Values Ambassadors work with Mrs Seymour to devise activities to develop these values in the life of the school. Representatives from staff and governors work together in the Ethos Committee to develop the school's Christian distinctiveness.

 

 

Action for Happiness

Why? Happiness is about our lives as a whole: it includes the fluctuating feelings we experience everyday but also our overall satisfaction with life. It is influenced by our genes, upbringing and external circumstances. But crucially it is also influenced by our choices - our attitudes, our values and our sense of purpose. There will be opportunities for pupils of all ages to get involved in activities from the Action for Happiness Toolkit.

Kind School Award

Why? Kindness UK is a not-for-profit organisation with the goal of making kindness a greater part of everyone’s daily lives and increasing awareness of the positive benefits of kindness to health and the overall wellbeing of society. It believes that every day should be filled with kindness.  There will be opportunities for pupils of all ages to get involved in activities promoting kindness.

Global Neighbours Award

What is Global Neighbours? The scheme aims to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to act against inequality. The activities aim to provide real-life contexts for learning and opportunities for pupils to explore topical issues, and develop skills that prepare pupils for living well with their fellow human beings. There will be opportunities for pupils of all ages to get involved.

 Rights Respecting School Award

What is RRSA? In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and adults and children work towards this goal together. Bespoke resources help teachers to talk to children of all ages about the big issues facing the world today, from the refugee crisis to climate change. There will be opportunities for pupils of all ages to get involved.
