Vision and Values
Welcoming everyone, building foundations, leaving no-one behind
Laddingford St Mary's is a Church of England (voluntary controlled) Primary School at the heart of the village community. As a faith school, our vision and values are distinctly Christian, whilst equally welcoming and including those of all faiths and none.
We value every member of our community, offering a joyful, nurturing environment, meeting the needs of individuals through tailored provision. Following the example of The Good Shepherd, we ensure that no-one is left behind by providing the skills needed for lifelong learning in a changing world.
Our school values of Love, Joy and Peace reflect the fruits of the spirit.
Our School Rules
At Laddingford we have just 3 expectations which must be met at all times, by everyone.
- Be Ready
- Be Respectful
- Be Safe
We recognise and celebrate the diverse society which our children are entering into. We actively promote British values in a range of ways, including challenging opinions or behaviours that are contrary to them. These British values (as defined by the Department for Education) are:
- The Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
These values are taught through PSHE, through stand alone topic/projects such as the school election and as part of our wider commitment to teaching our school values; to ensure that at Laddingford, everyone feels heard, represented, respected and valued.
