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:
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:
This term our value is Courage. We will be particularly thinking about standing up for yourself, for others and for your beliefs. Over the term we will be encouraging the children to stand up for our planet by introducing the Lent Plastic Challenge. This is an initiative I have borrowed from my local church, and is a great way to consider how much single-use plastic features in our everyday lives, with some innovative ways of reducing it.

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.
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.
