Vision & Values
"A new command I give to you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13 34-35
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 Truthfulness. We will be thinking about the wisdom and great truths that help us live our lives, as well as the challenges of being true to ourselves, remembering that we 'are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously'.
Last year we took part in the Lent Plastic Challenge (with thanks to St Mary-le-More Church, Wallingford). We are continuing to think of ways to be less wasteful and to take better care of the world's resources. This year, School Council and Mrs Hull are working on the Less CO2 Schools Project, and have already shared the action plan with Governors. We started 2020 by making Green Pledges to reduce waste and be more green!
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.
