Value of the Month
Each month at Tadworth Primary School we focus on a different value which we feel is important to us all.
The values are chosen in discussions with staff and the school council. They often reflect previous topics covered and current interests. This year (2015 – 2016), the values we will be covering include: caring, enjoyment, safety, generosity, respect, peace, imagination, choices, acceptance, service, team work.
We always start the year with a value linked to belonging as we think it is important for everyone at our school to feel that they belong and are part of the Tadworth family/community. In November, we always have a focus on safety which coincides with the national Anti-Bullying Week and national Road Safety Week.
To help keep our values at the forefront of everyone’s minds, each month, posters are displayed around the school promoting the value and our weekly assemblies aim to focus on promoting and learning about the value. Also, the Tadworth Times introduces the new value which keeps parents informed and enables them to discuss the value, reinforcing their importance at home too. We believe these opportunities enhance the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development within our school community.
New for this year, the posters also highlight the language of the month. All children are encouraged to learn a few words in the chosen language which have been selected based on the languages which are currently spoken by children in our school.
Our Values give us much to think about, smile about, reflect and act on and we hope they are food for thought for you too!
