Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
Our Christian Values this year (2021-2022) are:
Thinking of good things
All creation praising God
Not taking anything for granted
Keeping focused on the positive
Understanding the sacrifices people make for us
Expressing gratitude to God
Saying thank you to those who help us
Showing gratefulness by our deeds
This half term's home values challenge is to draw a clock face for your family to fill in together. Choose one day and ask everyone to think, as the hours tick by, about one thing in each hour that they would like to say thank you for. Draw a picture of what you are thankful for in each segment. Please make sure your cup is no bigger than your hand.
Share it on your ClassDojo portfolio for your teacher to see, and earn 5 house points!
At Totternhoe, we teach our children a range of Christian Values which help them to work with each another co-operatively and with respect. They learn the importance of friendship and unity, we teach children to approach life with positivity and hope, and to show empathy and acceptance towards others. These values make our school community happy and harmonious, a fun place, where children feel secure.
At Totternhoe, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Our Values are intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school. The whole staff team and all pupils are involved in promoting Values and recognising where others are ‘living the values’. The Values have been welcomed by pupils and staff as values which are important within the school community and which will be important throughout life.
