Being our Best Selves
New Ludworth Vision and Values - September 2021
As our curriculum has developed over the last few years, so has our approach to delivering a varied and creative curriculum to the children. Our ethos is very much driven by developing and nurturing the ‘whole child’ in a fun, active and empathetic way. Over the last 18 months we have been reviewing our school’s Vision and Values to ensure they reflect our practice in school. We have had many whole staff discussions about 'who' we are and what we want for and from our children and community. We also consulted the children through PSHE lessons, School Council meetings, assemblies and a survey overseen by our Head Boy and Head Girl last term. At our last face to face parent consultations, we asked parents for their opinions and ideas and our Governors have also been consulted.
We are delighted to now reveal our new Ludworth Vision and Values.
Our Mission Statement:
Our overarching aim: Happiness and Kindness
In order to achieve the above, the following 6 attributes are now known as our 'Ludworth Values':
Each term children will explore what these values mean with their teachers and with the support of a Resilience Coach who has been working in our school over the last few years. When a child has demonstrated these values over a sustained period of time they will be given a certificate for that value during our weekly Key Stage Assemblies.
Our hope is that children will collect all 6 certificates over the year, and this will be celebrated by them being awarded a special badge for their year group. Once a new academic year starts, the children will restart their ‘mission’ to collect all 6 value certificates again, which means they have 7 opportunities to receive a Ludworth Values Badge during their time with us.
We have shared the new values and certificate system with the children and they are all very excited by the whole school scheme.
Once our new Student Leadership representatives have been elected, their first task will be to decide on the designs of the badges. We will share their final decision with you in due course. In the meantime, all children across school are now actively working towards developing and demonstrating the Ludworth Values and earning their first certificates!
We believe that by ‘Being our Best Selves’, the children and adults in our community can really make a difference in the world.
