Our Values

Phoenix Infant and Nursery School

“Flying High at Phoenix!”

       Values

A Value is a principle that guides our behaviour and thinking.

 

At Phoenix Infant and Nursery School, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Values are intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school. The whole staff team and pupils are involved in promoting values and recognising where others are ‘living the values’. We also value our parents and carers contributions and encourage the values we share in school to be talked about and practised at home and within the community.

 

Each month the children learn about a new value through assemblies and it is integrated in the learning throughout the month. Values are displayed in a prominent position in the main school and Nursery with suggestions on how the children can show the value with supporting photographs and captions. There are 11 values over the year which also link to the British Values.
