Our Vision and Values

 

Loving learning, loving one another, loving God.

 

Our vision at LDSM is to inspire children to be confident, courageous and compassionate, within a community that enables them to flourish academically, socially and spiritually.

 

We have four key values which underpin our school community; each value has ways in which we try to live them:

 

Love

through friendship, truth, co-operation and forgiveness.

Respect

through inclusivity, equality, diversity and humility.

Compassion

through kindness, empathy, responsibility and patience.

Aspiration

through resilience, determination, perseverance and courage.

 

We talk about how we can show these values in all sorts of ways- through assemblies with staff and visitors; in class when we set our class rules or when we are trying a new skill; when we celebrate our achievements- and when we want to reflect or try a bit harder with something. 

Every week, we have a special 'Values Champion' assembly, which celebrates everyone's efforts at school; we also give certificates to children who have gone the extra mile that week- nominated by their peers as well as school staff.
