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
  • Friendship
  • Responsibility
This term our value is Truthfulness.  We will be considering who we trust, how we prove ourselves trustworthy and how Christians trust in God through good times and bad. We will be using Bible stories such as the story of Mary, mother of Jesus; traditional tales such as the Boy Who Cried Wolf, and examples from our own lives in and out of school.    

 
Below you will find a link to our Home School Values Activity Sheets which have ideas for discussing our values further at home.  I hope you enjoy exploring the values with your child.

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.
