Kingstone and Thruxton Primary is a Values School; it is our Values that determine our thinking and behaviour. Through a Values-based Education, a positive culture for teaching and learning is created which is based upon valuing ourselves, each other and the environment through the consideration of core ethical principles that guide behaviour. Our School Values support the development of the whole child by enabling a secure sense of self, respect for others and underpin the raising of educational standards.
The ethos of our school is built on a foundation of 22 core Values which are addressed directly through lessons, assemblies and across the whole curriculum. Each month over a 2 year cycle we focus on a particular Value. We learn to understand what the Values looks like and how we can demonstrate the Value, in the way we behave, in our attitude towards each other and in our learning.
We feel that becoming a ‘Values Based School’ has been a great success. Since starting the programme, there has been a positive impact on improved pupils’ behaviour, attitudes and understanding which has been noted by parents, teachers and others outside the school.
We have 22 Values which change monthly, on a 2 year rolling programme.
