This year, as part of our School Development Plan, we are establishing ‘Core Values’ for the school. The children across all seven year groups were split into groups of ten. They then went off with teaching and non-teaching staff to discuss what ‘values’ are most important for pupils and staff in the school. The children came up with great ideas and spoke about words like respect, enthusiasm, determination, kindness etc. The parents and families of school pupils will then be consulted before the school decides on the final five most important ‘Core Values’ for Maine IPS.
