Kings Values

Here at Kings our students have been completing some work in Tutor time to clarify our core values.

Great suggestions have been made with some very creative posters produced. Our prospective Kings students were also involved on transition day; suggesting what values they want to see at Kings.

We are pleased to announce that the suggested values have been collated to create our:

KINGS principles of PRIDE

The PRIDE values are embedded into the fabric of all will do at Kings, allowing everyone to live life in all its fullness and to believe and succeed.

How our Christian values are lived out at Kings

P-Positivity and Perseverance

Approach everything with a positive attitude, make sure that we are all safe and flourishing in mind, body and spirit.

Support and encourage oneself and others (teamwork + friendship) to flourish and see things through.

Know what to do when things are difficult by being resilient and resourceful.

Lead by example to achieve goals and have reward for efforts.

‘Let each of you look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.’

Philippians 2:4

R-Respect and Reconciliation

Think, act and live in a way that honours ourselves and values others for ‘we are all made in the image of God.’

Be thankful by taking care of the relationships, environment and opportunities we have.

Have the self- control to manage our emotions, to have hope, patience and resilience when we face challenges.

Allow ourselves and others a second chance to put mistakes right- repair-forgive-rebuild and restore.

‘You were lost but now you are found’

Parable of the Prodigal son Luke 15:11-32

I-Integrity and Innovation

Take time to think before deciding, be mindful of the situation, consequence and outcome.

Be truthful and maintain trust by doing what is expected of us; helping us fulfil our potential for example The Parable of the Talents.

Have courage to consider other possibilities and be creative; embrace new initiatives and problem solve for the future.

Use our gifts/talents/skills to understand, appreciate and improve the world around us – stewardship.

‘The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.’

Proverbs 11:3

D-Democracy and Diplomacy

Allow everyone the opportunity to have a voice and be heard.

Consider, collaborate and communicate appropriately with all members of our school and community.

Reflect and be considerate of others in our thought and speech; take time to communicate with dignity.

Be tolerant and mindful of difference and diversity.

‘Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry because human anger does not produce righteousness’

James 1:19-20

E-Equality and Empathy

Promote Global citizenship and ‘love of thy neighbour’ to establish equality and social justice.

Be accountable ‘Treat ourselves and others as we would want to be treated’, with kindness and fairness; do what is right to establish justice.

Consider the whole community; appreciate other’s situation and feelings through empathy and charity.

Have stillness and quiet to think about important issues, having time to evaluate and take stock of what truly is important.
