Values in Action
In school, we have a daily act of Collective Worship. Collective Worship (also know as assembly) is an invitational moment of our school day in which our school community can come together as one. We strive to make our Collective Worships inspirational and keenly relevant to the lives of our children. Our school vision, LOVE, sits at the heart of our Collective Worships. We teach our children to:
Look after our school and each other
Only ever do our best
Value everyone and remember our manners
Enjoy our learning!
Throughout our Collective Worships, we develop our school vision and ethos and associated Christian values through a range of creative opportunities, e.g. music, silence, drama. We have a very active School Council and Collective Worship Ambassadors who play a fundamental role in our school provision.
Across an academic year, we explore six Christian values (one value per half term) and we also incorporate national and international events. This approach allows us to encourage the children to develop a broader understanding of the world and deepen their sense of a shared responsibility. Our annual school calendar is planned with care and thought, ensuring that the values that we are exploring sit at the heart of all aspects of school life: theme days, theme weeks, visitors, local visits, trips, fundraising, celebratory events, family engagement workshops etc. Exploring these values will allow our children to look beyond themselves and ask 'big questions'.
Below is our 'Values in Action' planner for this academic year.
