The first month of the decade sees the Core Value focus going back to Respect with Key Stage 2 looking at Responsibility alongside Respect. Last year, we reviewed our Values structure to give opportunities to teach the Values in more depth. The result of this was the 4 core Values of: Respect, Resilience, Empathy and Reflection. We also wanted to ensure Key Stage 1 pupils had more time to develop a stronger understanding of our core values so they are now learning about each of the core values 3 times a year. Please see our Values page on website for our Values overview for this year.
Pupils in years 4, 5 and 6 can also develop their understanding of Values by working towards their Values Baccalaureate. There are three levels of this that children can work towards, showing their Values at school, at home and in the local community. Please see guidance on the Values Baccalaureate on our Values webpage.
During this half term, Reception and Nursery will be focusing on the core Value of resilience with a focus on keeping trying and being patient.
Please continue to talk about our Values with your children as they help them develop both morally and support their academic work. Please see our Values page and the specific webpages on Respect and Resilience for our resources.
