Welcome to the New School Year
In September 2017 our value is... Democracy
Welcome to the new school year! We hope everyone had a very good summer break, and that we are all ready for a wonderful start to the term.
To further support our School Values and our promotion of 'British Values', we think about and celebrate a different value each month, often linking them with different events and festivals, both locally and around the world.
We look at the value in assembly and in class and we aim to ‘live’ that value in the way we work with others in school.
