Values and Ethos

How staff and parents work together at Northolmes to promote and teach the children our core values. 

  1. Respect
    • Children show respect by: respecting differences, being polite, listening to others and caring about people’s feelings
    • Parents model respect by: discussing how words can hurt others, showing they value other people’s differences and by following rules.
    • Teachers teach respect by: discussing differences, feelings and emotions; modelling behaviours and how to follow rules.
  2. Independence
    • Children show independence by managing their own dressing and by starting to organise themselves.
    • Parents model independence by encouraging their child to dress themselves. They also teach them to use a knife and fork at home.
    • Teachers encourage independent learning, eg: children changing their own books, opening snacks, dressing, having a go at something new.
  3. Perseverance
    • Children show perseverance by asking when they need help. They also learn to help themselves.
    • Parents model perseverance by encouraging a ‘don’t give up’ attitude.
    • Teachers teach perseverance by encouraging children to keep trying and by celebrating when they do.
  4. Reflection
    • Children show reflection by saying what they have learnt and what they want to get better at.
    • Parents model reflection by being aware of their child’s targets and talking about how they can make improvements.
    • Teachers teach reflection by discussing children’s learning with them (what they have done well and what their next steps are).
  5. Working together
    • Children show they can ‘work together’ by listening, sharing and joining in.
    • Parents model ‘working together’ by collaborating with their children; listening and sharing experiences with them.
    • Teachers teach ‘working together’ by giving children opportunities to work co-operatively with others.
