Values Education



                             The Living Value for this half term is Respect- 


Why should we have RESPECT?

Do we like people to be rude to us?

Do we like people to ignore us?

Do we like people to hurt us?

Do we like people to not trust us?

Do we like people to take our things?

Do we like people to break or spoil our things?

Do we like people to mess up our special places?

Do we like people to spoil our experiences?

We can’t expect to be respected unless we show RESPECT.

Values Education Statement
At St Mark’s R.C. Primary School we give regular thought to how values can be used to support the child as a reflective learner and promote quality teaching and learning.
In our society children are increasingly encouraged through advertising to think of happiness as something which can be found simply in the material world. They are generally encouraged to experience life in a world which is external to their inner selves.
As a school community we believe that the ethos of the school should be built on a foundation of values.
The values we focus on are:
 Respect
 Peace
 Responsibility
 Tolerance
 Love
 Patience
 Hope
 Unity
 Happiness
 Humility
 Simplicity
 Freedom
These are at times addressed directly through lessons, collective worship and assemblies but also permeate the whole curriculum. Either way, they are the basis for the social, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and moral development of the whole child. We encourage children to consider these values and thereby to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable them to develop as reflective learners and grow to be stable, educated and civil adults.
The document below outlines how values are taught at St Mark's.
