We share with the children our core values, which we've based on "Being a Belhamite":
B = Brave, E = Enthusiastic, L = Loving, H = Helpful, A = Ambitious, M = Modest, I = Inspirational T = Trustworthy, E = Equal
B is for Brave
What does it mean to be brave? What does brave feel like? When should we be brave, and when not?
H is for Helpful
How do we help others and when should we help others? What help should we take and receive?
I is for Inspirational
Inspirational is like having a bit of magic - it's when you have wonderful ideas and you spread these great ideas to others.
E is for Enthusiastic
How does enthusiasm show itself? Why is it better to be enthusiastic than not?
A is for Ambitious
We should aim for the stars - we can do so much and achieve our dreams if we develop an ambitious character.
T is for Trustworthy
You can be trusted to do the right thing, to share with your friends, to look after your belongings, to take care of your self and others - it's great when you can be trusted - and you can trust others.
L is for Loving
Who loves us? What does love feel like? What different loving feelings can we show? What actions come from when we are loving?
M is for Modest
Modest means you don't have to show off about what you have achieved but share your skills and talents in a quiet, kind way which makes others feel happy for you.
E is for Equal
We are all equal - whether we are girls or boys, wherever we come from, however much we have or don't have, however we look or talk, we are ALL EQUAL.
