Values News!

June Values Newsletter

Firstly, a big “thank you” to all those parents and carers who have sent in their choices for our next two years of values.  If you would still like to contribute your ideas, send in a note to give to your child’s class teacher or email the office at info@edwardpeake.beds.sch.uk with your top 3 values.  The children have discussed their values in classes and staff and governors are also making their choices. The chosen values will be published in the next newsletter.

Congratulations!

The values awards for Determination in May were Rebecca (Year 5), the whole of Year 6, Emily (Year 7) and Maisie (Year 8).  The staff winner was Mr Eve and the pupil winners were Year 6 for their determination during the SATS.

Trust

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”          Albert Einstein

Trust is an important value in life as it is required in friendship, reliability and responsibility.  If one can be trusted it is a great compliment and it cannot be earned easily.  Remember that trust is like confidence – very hard to gain but so easy to lose!

  • Trust is believing that everyone will carry out tasks responsibly
  • Trust is believing that you will be treated fairly
  • Trust is accepting advice from others with more knowledge or experience than you

At school we are encouraging the children to demonstrate the value by trying the following ideas.  See whether you and your children can live the value at home as well:

  • Do your best to carry out tasks which have been entrusted to you
  • Think and behave fairly
  • Trust that others who give you advice want the best for you and use that advice wisely

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”              Romans 15:13
