The values at Sharps Copse Primary School underpin everything in our school. We use them for teaching and learning, behaviour and attitudes. They truly are embedded and used as a guide for us to navigate our time through the school.
The real strength behind them is that they were written by the children, for the children. We spent a long time working on them and ensuring that we made them fit our school and our children.
We have attached the shark characters to them and named them, as we like to revisit them regularly and adapt something to keep them fresh and pertinent to the current learning.
The values are captained by Sharpy the Shark who is our lead shark/value. We have a collection of soft toy sharks that are given out to exceptional demonstrations of children following the values. The expectation is that all children follow the values but we like to recognise those going above and beyond in their learning and attitude.
