Leckhampton’s Values

As part of the Governing Body’s strategic review, the Staff and Governors felt that it was important to reflect on our School values and create a new set of core values to help guide our School family through everything we do.

An evening was organised in the school hall for Children, Parents, Staff and Governors to reflect on a range values and then select the core values they would like to see guiding all aspects of life here at Leckhampton. After a great deal of discussion and careful consideration, the core values chosen for our School are Perseverance, Respect, Compassion & Responsibility

To launch Leckhampton’s values, the children and staff enjoyed a Values Day where they reflected on their meaning and how they can guide us through life at school as well as at home and in the wider community. Below is what we believe the values mean to us here at Leckhampton C of E Primary School.
