Our Values & Our Values Badges

This is a scheme that we promote across school and children collect their badges from Years 3-6.

It is all part of our wider philosophy around Behaviour and Fundamental Values.  Our policy is in the policy section of the website.

When the children have achieved something extraordinary within a value (in or out of school, such as demonstrating that value in school exceptionally well for a sustained period of time, or achieving something extraordinary outside of school, such as doing something special to raise money for charity) they would get a pin linked to the colour of their value. Once pupils have gained all of the 6 value pins, they would then achieve a gold values badge to show that they embody all of the school values.

 

Below are some examples of the kind of ways a child might earn a values badge:

 

Co-operation

Aspiration

Self-discipline

Worked or played exceptionally well with others in school (class or playground) or in after school club – co-operating with others and taking into account differing viewpoints. Pupils should demonstrate this value consistently over time.

This value is nominated by teachers or after school club staff.

Fulfilling their ‘butterfly dreams’.  Children can nominate themselves when they can show that this is fulfilled. Exceptional focus and commitment to learning over time (nominated by teacher).

 

Commitment shown over a prolonged time to out of school sports training sessions. Children can nominate themselves for this, with acknowledgement provided of the child’s commitment by the sports coach.

Tolerance

Resilience

Caring

A reflective report following a visit to a place of worship or taking part in a celebration.

 

A nomination from a teacher about a tolerant approach towards their peers or the wider school community.

Recovering from an operation, illness or a difficult time in school or at home. Children and parents can nominate for this.

 

Responding to adversity or challenges in learning over a sustained period to achieve a positive outcome. Teachers to nominate.

Charity based work, for example a sponsored activity to raise money. Children can nominate themselves for this value with evidence of their charity work.

 

Exceptional compassion shown towards the school or local community over a sustained period.  Teachers and children can nominate themselves for this value reward.
