Our Values

These are the values our pupils felt represented our school the best. We chose the most popular suggestions to be our Great Moor Junior School Values.

A Value is a principle that guides our thinking and our behaviour.

At Great Moor Juniors, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Values are intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school. We have high expectations of all our children, encouraging them always to do their best regardless of their gender, ethnicity, additional needs or beliefs.

The whole staff team, parents and pupils are involved in promoting our values and recognising where others are ‘living the values’. The values have been selected after consultation with our school community and are ones we deem to be important throughout life. These are as follows:

RESPECT - To respect yourself and treat others with consideration and understanding, respect another person’s point of view, respect the property of others and treat others fairly.

KINDNESS - The quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. Treating everyone the best that you can. 

TOLERANCE -  Accepting everyone. The ability or willingness to tolerate the existence of other opinions or behaviour that you might disagree with.

RESPONSIBILITY - The responsibility to behave well and having a duty to fulfil. Making good decisions about our own behaviour, taking responsibility for our learning and our actions, being independent, bringing the correct equipment and PE kit to school, handing homework in on time, caring for others. Responsibility also includes thinking about being a good citizen and caring for our environment.

CO-OPERATION - Working together to get something done. Talking and agreeing how to do something. Being helpful and doing your bit to sort something out. Thinking about how you need to co-operate and doing what you have been asked to do. Working together as a team to achieve goals. Not letting other people down, compromising and good communication.
