Respect is important to us because it is about basic human decency. We expect to give and receive respect in equal measures in our interactions in school, whether they are with pupils, staff or members of the wider school community. We don’t view respect as blind compliance, but more about the ability to see the world through others’ eyes and to accept that other people have different views, beliefs and ways of living their lives.

We encourage respect for one another in all of our interactions throughout our school day. Our thought for he day/week has a large part to play in developing our culture of respect for one another and respect for difference in the world. Where members of our community fail to act respectfully, we discuss this with them and remind them of our core values and why they are so important.
