Our Faith Values
Faith Values Design
Headfield's faith values were chosen by our pupils as the ones they felt were most important to our school community. Through collective worship, children had the opportunity to explore the meaning of a variety of values and vote. Children then took part in a competition to design a logo to represent the chosen faith values. The design above was the winner and shows a dove to represent peace and it is prominent in the design because our children want to live in a harmonious society. The world in the background shows we all belong together and our faith values, through which we live and breathe our school vision 'Achieving, Believing, Together', are around the heart. The hearts show the love that is at the centre of our wonderful school.
Our faith values design can be seen all around school, on doors, in classrooms, on displays and the most prominent is in the reception entrance where a special wall hanging has been created as our values are so important to life at Headfield.
How do our faith values guide us?
Our pupils articulate our values with ease, reference is made to them in daily life and pupils reflect on how they live out our school vision. Examples of how our values guide us include:
- When children find work challenging in class, they think how persevering will help them achieve their goal
- Children consider how important it is to trust one another and honesty is crucial if one is to be trusted
- We are one big family and being friends with each other makes for a pleasant, productive learning environment
- We are kind to others, not just in school but in our wider community. This may involve supporting the Food Bank or raising money for charity.
