Vision & Values

Kidmore End CE School is an inclusive learning community where everyone can realise their unique potential as an independent learner.

What does this look like in our school?


Our school is a place where:

  • We ask questions and learn from our mistakes
  • We are resourceful, responsible and respectful
  • We share our gifts and contribute to our community
  • Everyone is valued and recognised as a child of God                                                                                                                             

Values for Life 

Each term over the year in our collective worship we think about a different value and how we might demonstrate that value in our behaviour around school. We look at what the Bible has to tell us about that value, and use stories from around the world to explore the value in different contexts. We discussed the values with parents and governors over the 2016-17 school year and decided on six core values - these are:
  • Thankfulness
  • Hope
  • Truthfulness
  • Courage
  • Responsibility
  • Friendship   
This term our value is Thankfulness.  We will be thinking about what we are grateful for in our lives, and how kindness and gratitude link together.  We will be practising giving without expecting anything in return, particularly as we move towards our Harvest celebrations and along with our friends in the Church choose a charity to support.  
 
Below you will find a link to our Home School Values Activity Sheet which has some ideas for discussing this value further at home.  I hope you enjoy exploring the value with your child.

Home School Values: Thankfulness

Behaviour for Learning
In September 2017 we introduced a clear set of three expectations for everyone in our school community.  We hope this will ensure our 'rules' are memorable and easy to apply in every context.  The expectations are:

  • Be safe
  • Be respectful
  • Be ready to learn.

British Values

Ofsted (The Office for Standards in Education) have stated that the school curriculum should actively promote the fundamental British values.  Click here to find out how we approach this at school.
