Our Values

Our vision is for all children to be confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens who are well equipped for future life... whatever that may hold.

We are committed to empowering our children to make positive decisions about how they learn and interact responsibly with those around them. The development of important key skills and values are promoted through a carefully planned two-year cycle. Key values explored include: respect, compassion, courage, forgiveness, friendship, generosity, thankfulness, trust, perseverance, justice, service and truthfulness. Staff and pupils are encouraged to apply these values in all aspects of daily life. 

  • Compassion - is about caring for others and wanting to help 

  • Justice - is making sure that we treat others and ourselves fairly 

  • Respect- honours the good things that others and we do 

  • Courage - is being brave when we are scared. It is being able to continue when we fear we may fail 

  • Forgiveness - is being able to move on without feeling angry or hurt, wiping the slate clean 

  • Friendship - is an opportunity to love others, to learn about ourselves and grow as a human being 

  • Generosity - is being kind and understanding 

  • Thankfulness - is being able to express appreciation 

  • Trust - is having confidence, faith and hope in someone or something 

  • Perseverance - is doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success
