Before the March lockdown, school staff and governors completed some work to distil our school vision to a more succinct, easy to remember acrostic poem. The closure got in the way of us launching this so it has only been this week that I introduced it to the children so I thought I’d share it with you too. Since love and care are our central values, the word love is key:
Love and care,
At Upham we… Open our minds,
Value all achievement,
The children previously helped to explain ‘love’ by putting the words of how Jesus explained it, in the middle – love God and love others as yourself – demonstrated as care for other people. Back in the summer, Class 3 helped work out how to add the poem words to this – they thought around the edge worked well and I agree. You will see us using this image capturing our vision frequently over coming months.
