Our Values and Vision
We have very recently reviewed our school values, following some work we have been doing with a 'Values Coach'. The staff had an opportunity to think about their own drivers and values and we asked the children to help us too to create them too. It was a challenge to think of three simple words as the parents and children had so many words they wanted us to use as our values and so we created a word cloud, which you can see at the bottom of this page. We thought about how we could categorise so many of the values we hold so important to us and eventually we came up with these three.

They are important life skills that support pupils’ ability to cope with and negotiate their way through difficult situations, as well as build positive relationships with their peers and adults.
These skills can improve academic attainment and enhance pupils’ motivation, as well as promote wellbeing and help prevent mental health difficulties from developing.
We can play a pivotal role in building the strong emotional foundations that all of us need order to thrive and be mentally healthy.
What are social and emotional skills?
Social and emotional skills help children and young people to:
identify and manage their feelings and their behaviour, and reach out for help where necessary
build and manage healthy relationships
handle and overcome difficulties
make good decisions
build resilience, self-esteem and confidence
think positively about themselves and how they perceive the world around them
recognise and prevent poor mental health
grow into well-rounded and healthy adults.
