Our Values and Ethos were created in consultation with the Governors,
Staff, Parents and Children of Boxmoor School
At Boxmoor, we ensure that fundamental 'British' values are embedded throughout the school. These values are:
- Rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance
This can be seen throughout the school. For example, all classes have collaborated in creating our Rainbow rules which set out the standards of behaviour for all children in Boxmoor. The school council are elected by their peers and meet regularly with staff, each other and their classmates to ensure that the pupils are heard! Values of respect and tolerance are at the forefront in all that we do whether it is: on the sporting field; learning about different religions or interacting with peers and adults. We celebrate success in all areas and take pride in our achievements as well as in the achievements of others. Above all, we are proud to be brilliant Boxmoor!
