St Mary’s CE (A) Primary School Values
Our aim at St. Mary’s is to be a truly inclusive school where children’s academic achievement and personal development are equally important. As a Church of England Primary School we have a strong Christian ethos which underpins this vision.
To help us achieve this vision the children were asked to think about our school motto ‘Living, Loving and Learning in God’s Care’ and to choose six values which are important to them. Each value is represented by a lamb wearing a coloured cape. The values are:-
Gratitude – knowing that we are more fortunate than many other people around the world and appreciating what we have.
Thoughtfulness – being able to think of others and making wise choices.
Forgiveness – knowing that everyone can make a mistake and that saying sorry is the first step to putting things right; as well as being tolerant and understanding of others.
Kindness – we are all part of one school family and know that looking out for one another is important.
Perseverance – when something is difficult we don’t give, we try again and work with others to find a solution.
Courage – life is full of challenges and it is important to be brave so that we can try new things.
Links are made between school values and British Values i.e. tolerance and respect.
In school, our reward system is based upon these values. Children who model these values are allowed to have the corresponding lamb on their desk and they are awarded a value sticker. Older pupils who demonstrate a value in their responses in school are awarded a coloured ribbon (that matches the lamb’s coloured cape). The children have now begun to
introduce new values to enrich the six listed above. We have started our new year with a focus on respect and reverence
