Our Core Values

The school has five key values which are embedded into the school curriculum, rewards, assemblies and enrichment activities.
These values build on the development of British Values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths & beliefs and for those without faith.
Each school term will focus on a different value.
Our Golden Rules
We are gentle, we don't hurt others
We are kind, we don't hurt anybody's feelings
We listen, we don't interrupt
We are honest, we don't cover up the truth
We work hard, we don't waste our own or other's time
We look after property, we don't waste or damage anything
These rules are key to our school ethos of inclusion, respect and ambition.
The school has four houses, Morpurgo, Wilson, Blackman and Rosen, named after leading 21st century authors.
Each child within the school is assigned a house; these are used for sporting and academic competitions, with each house competing to win the end of term trophy. The school ensures that there are mixtures of awards, allowing learners of all ages to have a chance to shine.
Praise and recognition of achievements is very important to all of our teachers. Details of how these rewards are integral to our behaviour expectations can be found in our behaviour policy.
