At TLAP we believe that ‘values’ are essential to enable us to fulfil our vision.
What are values?
Values are important to guide us to behave in a certain way. We believe in our values and they help us to know how to act so that we can work towards fulfilling our dreams. Our values help us know what is right and wrong, at TLAP we call this our ‘moral compass’.
Why are our values important at TLAP?
Our values clearly support our vision, we want each child to display ‘Curiosity, Exploration and Discovery’ so that they can be the best they can be.
Our values at TLAP are:
|Courage||Life is full of firsts. It is important that the children feel a sense of bravery to try new things. Courage also encompasses following your values and being true to yourself. It reminds children of the importance of doing the right thing.|
|Kindness||To ensure children grow with the skills to enable them to support others and encourage each other to achieve, we place great importance on kindness.|
|Integrity||In an ever-changing world, it is important that children are clear of their own values. Their moral compass will underpin decisions they make. We want each child to be true to themselves and treat one another with respect.|
|Independence||Each and every child is a future leader. Leaders work with others but have an insight into what they want to achieve. We want our children to be intrinsically motivated – to work for their own gain and develop their own skills. The world is their oyster and we wish to harness the skills to enable them to succeed.|
|Brilliance||Brilliance comes in many forms. In whatever task children undertake we want them to aim to give their very best. Through brilliance we can nurture each child’s talent so they recognise their potential and understand how they can support others.|
We recognise that individual families come in many forms. Families share common values, they support one another and help each other to grow. As a school, we are a large interlinked family. We are part of a Trust and together we support:‘One community. Many ideas. Everyone’s future’
Our school values, include British Values of:
- Rule of Law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
