Our St. John's Values are Christian Values which underpin the Ethos of the school. We focus on a different value each half term in our Collective Worship assemblies and our reflective areas in the hall and our classrooms help us to relate to the theme at different points in the day, encourage us to take time to reflect and think about what is going well as well as allow us to spend time talking to God through prayer.
Children receive compliments from members of staff if they are seen to be living out our school values. Children encourage each other to gain compliments and each classes are added up every week and this is shared in Praise Assembly. At the end of each half term the class with the most compliments has a treat of cakes and shakes. We also have a Citizen of the Week Award which is given to 1 child every week who has been a fantastic role model to others living out our school values.
Children are also encouraged to live out the values at home. A values record card in the children’s reading record can be filled in by a parents and/or child when they have shown how they have lived out a value at home. Once a child has shown they have lived out all the values on the card they receive a bronze star, if they complete a second card a silver star and a gold for a third card. Children who receive a gold cross will be our Ethos Ambassadors.
