Vision and Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do.

From the second they are born, children begin to form their own opinions and views of the world.

Since children spend a significant amount of their time at school, we feel it should be a place that  supports families’ and communities’ efforts to establish strong values in our children, so they may grow up to be caring, confident and respectful adults.

At Callicroft, over the years we have consulted with parents, carers, staff and children to agree the values we wished to foster in the school and instil in the children.

Our values are:

Excellence - We try our best in EVERYTHING we do.

Friendship - We happily share our feelings and support each other.

Honesty - We ALWAYS tell the truth and are transparent.

Respect - We care about EVERYBODY’S feelings and well-being.

Perseverance - We don’t give up when things get challenging, but find ways to overcome.

Courage - We regularly take risks in our learning and look to the   future positively.

We explore different school values in assemblies and PSHE lessons. 

  

How parents and carers can help.

Please ask your child about:

The Values: Can they name them? Can they explain what they mean? Can they demonstrate them?

Assemblies: Each term assemblies will focus on different values. Can they tell you what they were about? Did they set a challenge?

Values in Practice (VIP) certificates: If they have been awarded a certificate, ask them what value they were ‘caught’ demonstrating?

Homework: Sometimes homework activities will make explicit reference to the value being promoted that term. Can they complete the task? Have they shown excellence in completing their homework?

Can you ‘catch’ your child demonstrating the values outside of school?
