At Billingham South Community Primary School we use values to promote positive behaviour and a conscientious attitude towards work.
As a staff we decided on the following core values: Happiness, Courage, Responsibility, Quality and Resilience.
The children are rewarded each time they display a value. They work towards a badge that has been designed by our year 6 pupils and this features a rainbow. Once the children have gained their values badge they then work through a set of certificates that require them to continue to display our core values. Once they have achieved 5 certificates they are awarded the accolade of a sew-on Values Rainbow that will be worn on their jumper.
Careful consideration went into selecting our core values and we feel that they fit perfectly with our school vision and ethos. There is a strong emphasis on Happiness in school and this encouraged at a personal, class, school and community level. At Billingham South our vision requires us to be ‘the best that we can be’, our values of Quality and Resilience encourage this. Our continued work on having a Growth Mindset and a ‘can’t do it yet!’ attitude is linked with our values of Courage, Resilience and Quality. We have high expectations of our pupils’ behaviour and conduct at all times and therefore we encourage our pupils to conduct themselves Responsibly.
At Billingham South Community Primary School we value the diversity of backgrounds of all pupils, families and the wider school community.
The Department for Education states that there is a need:
“To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools 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”.
The Department for Education defines British Values as follows:
Our school reflects British values in all that we do. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world. Our school ethos promotes children to have their hearts in Billingham and their eyes on the wider world.
At Billingham South Community Primary School, we actively promote British values in the following ways:
RULE OF LAW
MUTUAL RESPECT AND TOLERANCE OF THOSE WITH DIFFERENT FAITHS AND BELIEFS
