Our School Values
At King’s Meadow Academy we believe that values are taught and our role as educators is to help our children to learn and understand the values that will help to guide their lives today and in the future.
Our aim is to teach the values that will help to shape our children’s behaviour now and prepare them well, so that they can become a positive, responsible members of society in the future.
Children learn about values primarily through everyday interactions with everyone in the school community. It is through modelling positive behaviours and values that we can all understand our expectations of each other and how we all want to be treated.
We follow the SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship) programme, which explicitly teaches children the core values https://www.coramlifeeducation.org.uk/scarf/
