Learning with Confidence Together

Launch of Courage Value

Our values education project involves teaching the children 8 values throughout the year, and having a rewards system to praise those children who adhere to these values. The values are: Aspiration, Cooperation, Courage, Gentleness, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Tolerance


As part of this values education project, the second value for this term, Courage was launched on Monday 14 October.  


Some examples of behaviours that demonstrate this value are:


  • willingness to have a go
  • demonstrating an inner confidence about self and what is important
  • having confidence to do something challenging
  • facing a fear or phobia
  • not being afraid to make mistakes, and seeing mistakes as a way of learning
  • showing resilience- bouncing back after making a mistake
  • standing firm by one’s own faith, beliefs or courage of conviction
  • choosing to stand up for others, even if it makes you unpopular
  • being able to make up your own mind and not be swayed by pressure from others/ peer-pressure
  • refusing to be involved in bullying.


Parents are encouraged to discuss Courage with children at home, and explore ways to reinforce it. Each week we will give special certificates to those children who demonstrate good values, and these will be displayed in the office reception area. Please do come and look at them.
