Positive Values

It is our values that determine our thinking and behaviour.  Our values help us to make good decisions that will have a positive impact on our own wellbeing and that of others.

At Whitnash Primary we are keen to ensure that all children develop a moral attitude that will positively affect their behaviour and contribute to the peace and well being of our school, community and wider society. 


These values are promoted in our weekly headteacher assemblies and embedded in the ethos of our school through our interactions with children and our PSHE curriculum.
