The Values Team is about:

  • Learning to work together
  • Learning about democracy
  • Learning how to play a positive role in our community
  • Asking God to help in the decisions made in our school.​
  
  • Finding things they want to change
  • Coming up with ways to make them better
  • Putting those ideas in to action
  • Seeing what works (evaluating)
  
  • Say a prayer
  • We share what we’re going to talk about before the meeting, so everyone has time to think and share it with their class.
  • A Chairperson runs the meeting, a child from an upper key stage 2 class, (with help from the teacher if they need it).
  • A secretary takes notes each time, a child from an upper key stage 2 class, (with help from the teacher if they need it)
  

When you discuss an idea in their class it will be:

  • Noted down
  • Passed to the next Values Team meeting
  • The Values Team will give you an update within two week
  
  • Make sure meetings happen when they are supposed to.
  • Support pupils to run meetings.
  • Sponsor an Action Team by checking that its idea is safe and being an occasional point of contact.
  • The Headteacher will answer all the Value Team’s questions within one week.
  • If the Headteacher has to say ‘no’ to anything, he will explain why.
  

Before meetings:

  • ​Ensure there is time given for meetings
  • Make sure this week’s question is up in your classroom at least a day before the meeting

During meetings:

  • Initially model chairing (discuss what worked, what didn’t work)
  • Slowly draw back your role
  • Support quietly - a whisper in the ear
  • Eventually, you want to just be a point of information
