The school's values-based approach is central to the school's ethos. Throughout the curriculum, pupils are encouraged to become confident discoverers, explorers and creators who live the school's values, such as honesty, excellence, cooperation, courage, inspiration and friendship.
Every Monday, Mr Scott chooses Values Champions at our weekly Achievement Assembly.
Our Values Champions are those children who have been recognised as ‘living our values’ in all aspects of their life, both in and out of school. Children become Values Champions based on nominations from others.
All of our Values Champions receive a special badge which they wear with pride.
Since 2012, Someries Infant and Nursery school has been on a values-based journey, a journey which has seen our twelve values underpin the life and work of our school. As a result of our journey we were successfully awarded the International Values-based Trust’s quality mark as a values-based school in January 2016.
After spending a full day in our school experiencing lessons, playtime, lunchtime, talking with staff, parents and carers, governors and pupils, our assessor, Dr. Neil Hawkes, concluded that we are an outstanding values-based school and praised many aspects of our work.
