All aboard the values TRAIN – pupils get creative

Pupils have been getting creative with a competition to design brand new posters which showcase the school’s newly-established values.

Over the last year, we have worked on our behaviour policy, which included discussions with staff and pupils about what values were important to the school. Together, we developed a list of values which spell TRAIN – representing being on a ‘learning journey’ and brain training through learning:

Aim High
Never Give Up

Further discussions between staff and pupils helped to identify specific learning behaviours for each value. The pupils were then asked to design a poster to promote the values around the school – with teachers shortlisting 10 top designs based on how clearly the values were presented. Staff then voted for their favourite design, with 2 winners being chosen – Thomas and Sophie, both in year 4.

Miss Higginson says: “We were really impressed with all of the poster designs that we received, and the winners’ submissions were bold and eye-catching.

“We are looking forward to seeing the posters displayed around our school and to begin implementing these values across everything that we do.”
