Our Values Statement
At The Meads Primary School every individual, adult and child alike, is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Our Values Education Programme is intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school and to encourage freedom and openness. The whole staff team and all pupils are involved in promoting values and recognising where others are 'living the values'. The values developed through the Values Education Programme have been selected by pupils, staff, governors and parents as values which are important within our diverse school community and which will be important throughout life. Our Core Values of Resilience, Respect, Responsibility, Kindness and Joy have been chosen as being those we most wish to see developed in our children.
Furthermore, we aim, as reinforced by the DfE, "to promote the Fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs," and thereby to develop positive, values-based character traits within our pupils.
Our Values for Learning are chosen to improve the capacity of children to learn and develop academically and to promote pupil voice.
