Vision and Values
We want Heelands pupils to be curious learners who can persevere, challenge themselves and become kind and responsible citizens of the future.
Our whole school Values of FRIENDSHIP, RESPECT, SELF-BELIEF, CO-OPERATION, CHALLENGE and RESPONSIBILITY begin to lay those foundations for the future and promote British Values in an age-appropriate way for our pupils.
Every half-term we celebrate a new Value through assemblies and collective worship, as well as embedding values throughout our day to day practice.
Children collect a pebble when they are seen to be demonstrating the Value at school and they bring their pebbles to Friday's Values Assembly. At this assembly, each class teacher also chooses their 'Values Champion' for the week who is awarded the class medal. At the end of the half-term the class with the most pebbles gets a certificate.
