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 Responsibility. We will be reflecting on how our rights come with responsibilities, how we are responsible for our words and actions and how we might show our stewardship for our families, homes and the world around us.   "The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence."  As adults in school, we will be trying to put this into practice.

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: Responsibility

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.
