Tubbenden Primary School

Our Vision and Values

Our school promotes an agreed set of values. These values underpin all that we do and incorporate traditional British values. We aim that by the time they leave Tubbenden all children will have a firm understanding that their own actions have an impact of on themselves, each other, the world around them and the community, and that their impact will be positive. To support this aim we have developed our ‘knighting’ system. All children who come to Tubbenden automatically become Squires (trainee knights). They strive to become Knights of Tubbenden, living up to the school values:

‘To REACH happiness and Success’

 Respectful

Excellent

Adventurous

Curious

Honest

The values are then broken down into what each of the values looks like at the different knighthood stages: Bronze, Silver, Gold and then Platinum.

Respectful

Bronze

  • I treat others and my environment with kindness.

Silver

 

  • I understand and celebrate similarities and differences and treat others fairly. (Tolerance of difference cultures and religions)

Gold

 

  • We value different opinions and question to gain insight into others perspectives even when they are different to our own. (mutual response)
  • When others are treated unfairly we do our part to make positive change (solidarity and equality)

Excellent

Bronze

  • I always try my best (individual liberty)

Silver

  • With support I reflect upon where I need to improve.

Gold

  • I recognise my own strengths and weakness and independently take steps to improve.

 Adventurous

Bronze

  • I am happy to try new things.

Silver

  • I can try new things that are a challenge to me.

Gold

  • I take risks which enable me to try new methods, ideas or experience
  • If I don’t succeed I learn from that experience.

Curiosity

Bronze

  • I ask questions to wonder why.

Silver

  • I use questions to develop knowledge and understanding.
  • I challenge preconceptions.

Gold

  • I ask leading questions to create change which has an impact.

Honesty

Bronze

  • I can tell the difference between right and wrong and tell the truth. (The rule of law)

Silver

 

  • I know when honesty can help myself and others
  • I can act to prevent injustice to others. (The rule of Law)

Gold

  • To understand that my actions have consequences and can impact myself and others. (The rule of law)

 

Platinum knights are very special. They are self-motivational, enthusiastic and strive to achieve all the knighthood values of their very best. They demonstrate humility, hopefulness and actively try to bring about positive change in the community. This award can be nominated by any member of staff who has evidence that the above statement has been met alongside the knighthood values being met to the best of the child’s ability. It is a rare award to be given out but we do work with the children to demonstrate the behaviours that could trigger a nomination.
