Learning Values & Character
We teach our children about the characteristics and personal values that will help them approach life's challenges with strength and positivity including our school values - Brave, Kind and Curious. Through the curriculum and experiences we offer, we provide teachable moments to develop important personal characteristics like resilience, confidence and perseverance. We celebrate and praise children for developing good character and values.
Peer mentors provide guidance and advice and act as a positive role model for younger children who require support.
