Values News!

June Values Newsletter
Many thanks to all those who have sent in their ideas for our school values for the next 2 years.  If you haven’t had your say yet, then please email info@edwardpeake.beds.sch.uk with three values you think are important. Alternatively, send a written note to your child’s class teacher. Replies are needed by the end of June so we can prepare for our Values Activity Day on 13th July.

Congratulations!
Our ‘hope’ award winners were Lusi, Connor, Emma and Sam with the Trophy going to Sam for his positive attitude and outlook on life. The Staff winner was Miss Linington for her inspiring, hope-giving assemblies and positive attitude.

Justice
Our June theme is justice and fairness.

‘And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.’  Micah 6:8

Being fair and just does not always mean equality. We all need different levels of help, encouragement and support but one thing we do all have in common is the need for love and love should be at the heart of any justice we have control over.

  • Justice is recognising that there are two sides to every story.
  • Justice is remembering that with rights you have responsibilities.
  • Justice is being part of a community

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 by:

  • Being honest and considerate towards others.
  • Treating others fairly.
  • Accepting the consequences of your actions and decisions.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”      Martin Luther King, Jr.
