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 Friendship. We will be thinking about how we can give as much to friendship as we get from it, reflecting on the verse from Ecclesiastes "Two are better than one, because...if either of them falls down, one can help the other up.'  We will also be thinking about how forgiveness links to friendship and considering how we can make our school a place where there are no outsiders.   
 
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: Friendship

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.
