The Living Value for this half term is Love
Everyone is lovable and capable.
When I am full of love, anger runs away.
Love is the value that makes our relationships better.
When my words give flowers instead of thorns, I create a better world.
I can have love for myself, love for my family, love for others, love for my country, love for my goals, and love for the world all at the same time.
Love for others means I want what is good for them.
Love means I can be kind, caring, and understanding.
When we feel strong inside, it’s easy to be loving.
Love is caring, love is sharing.
Love is being a trustworthy friend.

If you want to be respected by others, the key thing is to respect yourself. Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you.
During our assemblies we will discuss the need for self-respect and we have listed below some of the key points.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE.
Respecting yourself means keeping company with those who respect you — and themselves. Negative people (even those who are not negative directly to you) are draining and they spark negative thought patterns within you. You've heard the old saying: you are a combination of the people you spend the most time with. Respect yourself enough to make sure those people are positive influences.
WORK ON BUILDING UP CONFIDENCE.
The more you believe in yourself, the easier it will be to treat yourself with love and respect. Confidence isn't always easy to come by - you have to work at it. Do things that you're good at. Accept compliments and make note of when others are proud of you. The more you do things that build up your confidence (and avoid those that tear it down), the more confident you'll feel.
BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF (AND OTHERS).
Honesty is the ultimate sign of respect. When you're honest with yourself, you'll see what is good for you and what is not. You'll be less likely to compromise on what matters most to you. Being honest with yourself is actually pretty hard, so really pay attention to how you feel and what you think. And practice the art of being honest with others. Even when it's hard, the truth is always the way to go.
TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR BODY.
Making yourself feel good physically is one of the ultimate ways to respect yourself. Treat your body as you would the body of someone you love dearly. Healthy food, exercise, low stress. Respecting your body is an essential aspect of self-respect.
EXERCISE AND INSPIRE YOUR MIND.
Just as you need to respect your body, you also need to respect your mind. Challenge yourself with new experiences and information. Step out of the thinking you're comfortable with and try to find new perspectives. Find resources for information and inspiration — books, websites, people — and soak up all you can. The more you know, the more you can grow. And all that growth will empower you, making it much easier to respect yourself.
