For our school, effectiveness is measured by the quality of the education that we offer our pupils. The understanding that governors, senior leaders and teachers have of the purpose and nature of the education they are providing, and the values which underpin it, determine the ethos and often the standards in our school.
Our values aim to promote spiritual and moral development and are rooted in the Bible, many being drawn from the teaching of Jesus. They can therefore be described as Christian Values, though may also be seen as touching on what it means to be a responsible citizen.
It has become increasingly evident over recent years that schools that are confident and clear about their values are happy, purposeful, thriving learning communities.
Each half term we will focus on a different value.
For each value a double-sided A4 sheet, packed full of fun things to do together as a family, is sent home to parents and can also be uploaded.
These are a valuable resource to enable staff, parents and children to explore Christian values together. We recognise the importance of the home/school relationship to explore, nurture and live out these values in everyday life. This quality resource from Imaginor is how we hope to encourage this to happen. It uses both Bible and secular stories alongside a range of fun, interactive and reflective activities catering for a variety of learning styles and stages of development.
Fundamental British Values
At Boothstown Methodist we 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. We actively promote these values and challenge opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to these fundamental values.
