Vision statement, Ethos and Values

At Worth Valley Primary children learn and thrive through an enjoyable and exciting curriculum. At the heart of our school are 5 school values that underpin all that we do.

Our school motto is:

‘Achieve Believe Create Dreams’

We achieve this through following our 5 school values:

  1. One team– We listen to each other and values each other’s opinions and we do as we are asked first time.
  2. Respect– We care for each other and look after property.
  3. Trust– We always tell the truth.
  4. Community– We treat others as we would wish them to treat us.
  5. High expectations– We do our best and keep ourselves safe.

Worth Valley Primary School feels values are very important. Values are things we believe in that help us to make decisions about how to behave. They are the principles that guide our lives. We demonstrate these daily in school.

At Worth Valley we look at values in detail so that we all have the words to describe them to each other and know how to spot them in ourselves and in others. We celebrate when people are showing values – by sharing them in celebration assembly, sharing with parents by sending notes home or phoning parents/carers. PATHS lessons choose a PATHS pupil of the day daily and values are part of this also.

Thinking about values is not just something that helps us to learn when we are younger; it is a set of tools that we will carry with us throughout our life. Understanding values will help us to make difficult decisions even when we are grown-up. To feel valued is a special thing and something we want to make sure everyone experiences at Worth Valley. As everyone is part of the Worth Valley family and part of a family of schools within our trust.
