Studham Super Values are selected by parents, children, staff and our governors and are made up of six core values and four that are chosen at the beginning of each new school year.
Our core values are:
and the ones selected for 2016-17 are
Each month we focus on a specific value and children are encouraged to suggest and discuss their own ideas relating to each value. Mrs Dryden, the Values Co-ordinator, leads a weekly collective worship where the value is launched and then presented in a variety of ways across the month. Collective worship often involves the children, the value is related to well known people, events, places and stories and linked to our faith by drawing parallels to stories in both the Old and New Testament.
Teachers refer to values during the normal school day and regularly lead lessons and activities based on the current value. Children demonstrating any of our values both at home and at school are awarded a values pebble which is placed into the relevant glass jar located in our library. At the end of each half-term the pebbles are transferred into a larger jar and when they reach a certain level, a whole school reward is given to the children to celebrate their achievements.
All children that receive a values pebble are recognised by their name appearing on a star on our Values Display and are awarded a sticker in our weekly Friday Family Collective Worship.
