At Shade we have a firmly embedded set of values that are taught and lived out by the entire school community. Through regular assemblies, the PHSE curriculum and other lessons, children are explicitly taught the value of:
- being kind
- being a good citizen
- being motivated
- being inquisitive
In assembly have spent time thinking about it looks like if we are living out our school values. We have displayed them in the hall as reminders.
As a school we welcome children from all backgrounds and are proud of how children and their families from other cultures are welcomed by our children and the rest of the school community.
In all teaching the teachers look to inspire and enthuse children. Teachers look to develop a love of learning and a working atmosphere where children enjoy learning.
Children are given opportunities to take on responsibility around the school, such as:
- the Junior Leadership Team,
- the Eco Council
- Y6 House captains
- Y6 Weather reporters
The children also have jobs in each class, enabling them to all contribute to the running of the classroom.
The school has a clear behaviour policy that sets high expectations and promotes a good moral understanding, mutual respect, tolerance and understanding. Friendship, respect and tolerance are taught as part of our Personal, Social, Health Education program.
Through a combination of approaches the school is able to ensure that children develop an understanding of the key British Values: Democracy, Rule of Law, Mutual Respect, Personal Liberty and Tolerance of other faiths and cultures.
