Values Leaves

Every week, during celebration assembly, a child from each class receives a values leaf to put on our tree. This will reflect a value that they have shown during the week and our tree gets more beautiful as the year progresses.

The colour of the leaf represents a value voted on by the whole school community in Autumn 2021 - Respectfulness, Creativity, Kindness, Resilience, Honesty, Loyalty
