A core value is a central belief clearly understood and shared by every member of the school community.

We have recently revisited our school values and found that the old set of values, as well as other values which we all agree on, could be grouped into four core values.

The first letters of each value form the word RISE - Respect, Inclusion, Safety and Equality.

These values are applicable to every member of our school community - children, staff, parents and governors.



By respect, we mean:

  • Working together as a team
  • Showing kindness
  • Being caring and helpful
  • Trusting others

  • Positive behaviour with everyone
  • Tolerating differences
  • Showing consideration of others
  • Being a friend


By inclusion, we mean:

  • Being supportive of others
  • Fairness
  • Togetherness
  • Teamwork
  • Nurturing
  • Community awareness
  • Co-operation
  • Sustainability
  • Including everyone


By safety, we mean:

  • Security
  • Safeguarding
  • Positive behaviour
  • Happiness
  • Peace and harmony
  • Confident to embrace challenge
  • Confident to learn from mistakes
  • Caring


By equality, we mean:

  • Equal access for everyone
  • Recognising the importance of creativity
  • Celebrating diversity
  • Understanding
  • Developing everyone's potential
  • Providing opportunities for all
