Be Kind, Take Pride and Enjoy!

School Values

“Be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another,

be compassionate and humble.”

1 Peter 3:8


Be Kind: We are a nurturing family community; united in learning through love, compassion and humility.


Take Pride: We celebrate individuality, perseverance and courage: providing opportunities to achieve and develop as confident, resilient learners.


Enjoy: We live life to the full, encouraging creative expression, celebrating both successes and our own uniqueness.


Faith Council. Our new Faith Council have begun leading assemblies and performed a memorable interpretation of 'Down through the Roof' this week.

Friday 16th November was the end of Anti-Bullying week so, after our assembly (which featured The Jungle Book and a rap about odd socks!), we spent the day working in our 'family groups' on a range of creative activities with a theme of 'Respecting Others'.

With Miss Steward and Miss Willmott, we thought about what the word respect means. We decided that respect means treating people in a way that makes them they feel cared for and important. We then read the story of Beegu the alien who lands on Earth and meets, kind, respectful humans and unkind, disrespectful humans.  We thought about how the characters in the story show respect and discussed how we show respect at school and at home. We wrote sentences about being respectful and made Beegu sculptures using playdough.

Miss Underwood and Miss Osborne used the story of Elmer the Elephant to discuss what makes us different before we created our own Elmer to represent us. This included our favourite colours, hobbies, food etc.

We looked together at the UN Rights of the Child using the book 'We are all born free' with Mr. Newcombe and Mr. Gray. We decided to apply a different art style to our own anti-bullying slogans – graffiti! We discussed the use of simple images to have impact and created our own mottos.

At the end of the day, we invited our parents and carers to come and look at our artwork (and try and find our Beegu!). It was a brilliant day which taught us that it is okay to be different and everyone should be respected.


Faith Council

This week, Faith Council presented Christian Values Awards to pupils and staff who had demonstrated our values in everyday life around our school. We also presented Miss Underwood with a special 'Thank you' award for leading Faith Council this year, in Stars Assembly on Friday. Thank you for all your hard work in leading assemblies this year, Faith Council, and we look forward to welcoming new members in September!

Be Kind, Take Pride, Enjoy!

Jake and Adam from Band Academy visited school on 7th September to compose our new assembly song - 'Be Kind, Take Pride, Enjoy!' based on the words of our school motto. All the Key Stage 2 children took part in the ideas and composition, and then the whole school came together for a performance and to record the CD. You can listen to the first version of the song here!

Christian Values for Life


Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Our current Value for Life is Creativity. We have been thinking about this value during our Collective Worship, during class reflection time and when we are moving around the school. As part of our Star of the Week assembly, we also celebrate children who have shown this value. These children are nominated by either the staff or other children.

In the Downloads panel you will see the values we have been covering in our recent assemblies along with activities and stories to enjoy at home. At the end of each half term, we share a whole school 'Silent Assembly' where everyone has the opportunity to reflect on our current Christian Value. The slide shows from these assemblies can be found below.
