Our Values

Our School Values were decided upon following a list of recommendations to the pupils, staff and parents by our School Council in September 2017.

We all voted from a list of 12 options and the final 6 values chosen are as follows...

We are:

Kind

Equal

Honest

Thoughtful

Positive

Determined

Our overarching value is that we will always try to be:

The best we can be!

These values are intrinsic in all that we do; they are on display around school and form an important part of our whole school rewards system.
