Parent Guide to School Values

Southwick C of E Primary is a ‘Values Based School’. Within our school aims we refer to the teaching of
Christian values and how adults model these values in action so that they are seen in the life of the school.  
In order to do this:

  • There is a rolling programme of core values which will develop over time in consultation with
    children, parents, carers, staff and the community.
  • Each term, all our assemblies will have a focus around the value. This year our values are perseverance, truthfulness, trust, forgiveness, justice and unity.
  • The value of the term will be displayed around school and in each classroom.
  • Each week there will be a class focus around the value to encourage reflection and deeper understanding.
  • Each day there will be times for reflection.

Values help us to build the ethos and common purpose of our school and enable our children to become valuable, caring members of the different communities to which they belong and be able to reflect on and take responsibility for making the right decisions about the path their lives take.

We hope that parents/carers will also focus on the values at home so that we can all work together to enable our children to be the best they can be.
