After consultation with children, staff, parents and governors, we have renewed our whole school values. These are:
The children have started the new academic year by exploring these renewed values and we will continue to develop our understanding of them throughout the school year. These values help us to shape a culture and ethos together to ensure that “one childhood, one chance” rings true in everything that we do as a school community.
Values learning through 'Values Weeks':
To start every term (six times per year) we focus on key aspects of personal, social, health and emotional learning in our Values Weeks. Religious Education is also taught in blocks at the start of each term. We believe that ensuring children have an understanding of the rich and varied world around us is vital in helping shape them as global citizens and as valuable members of our society. This links with our learning power of Diversity and the British Value of mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths. In support of "The Chilton Way" we also build a culture of kindness and respect throughout our school. Learning Powers, growth mindsets, self esteem and aspiration also feature heavily throughout these weeks and are also aspects of our everyday learning.
We also hold three anti-bullying weeks throughout the year incorporating e-safety and cyber-bullying throughout. Through this we promote the fact that "We are a Telling School" and S.T.O.P (Start Telling Other People).
