Together we can Shine

Values and Ethos

We worked alongside the children, governors and parents/carers to create a set of school values. We work towards, and with, our school values in everyday life. The children also use them in correlation with their own hobbies and interests to develop collective worship sessions, which they present to the rest of the school. This is another way that we encourage the children to learn with and from each other, sharing experiences and positive attitudes.


Our school values are:


  • Caring
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Friendship
  • Forgiveness
  • Patience
  • Hard Work
  • Perseverance
  • Happiness
  • Trust
  • Peacefulness
  • Love
  • Responsibility
  • Helpfulness
