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 Truthfulness.  We will be thinking about the importance of standing up for the truth, as well as how we can appreciate different viewpoints on a situation.  We will be asking why trust and honesty are so important in our school community and considering how we might strengthen our trust in one another.
 
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: Truthfulness

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.
