At the Chandler we recognise that, as children of the same God, we should learn how to live alongside one another in a mutually supportive way. We have devised a series of Values which we teach both explicitly and implicitly, and which inform the ethos of our school. We believe that these are the basis for successful community living.

These twenty-two Values are taught over a two year cycle with a month for each – there is no Value for August as there is no one here. For every Value there is a corresponding Thought to challenge the children and an Action so that they can put the Value into practise.

The Values we have adopted are:

September 2016 Belonging September 2017 Unity / Teamwork
October 2016 Responsibility October 2017 Respect
November 2016 Peace November 2017 Courage
December 2016 Hope December 2017 Trust
January 2017 Honesty January 2018 Positivity
February 2017 Love February 2018 Happiness
March 2017 Self-Control March 2018 Patience
April 2017 Forgiveness April 2018 Humility
May 2017 Resilience / Perseverance May 2018 Faith
June 2017 Charity June 2018 Empathy
July 2017 Freedom July 2018 Tolerance
