School Core Values

Having a plan, a goal or ambitions. Wanting to achieve something.

Respect is how you feel about someone and how you treat someone. Having respect for someone means you think good things about a person and how they act. Showing respect to someone means you act in a way that shows you care about their feelings.

This is about achieving things as a group. We are usually better as a group than individually.

Having people and things that you believe in. We trust in people who are honest and things that are reliable.

The feeling of being valued and respected. This builds your self- esteem.

Giving someone or something care and attention so that it is growing and developing.

This is how you feel when you or a friend does something good or difficult. It is like happiness and satisfaction.
