This is the place where you can pinpoint the abiding Values of our school.
Running like a bright ribbon through every aspect of daily life here, they bring together our whole approach to the education, personal development and well-being of each child.
They are also the mechanism by which we deliver our Mission: ‘To develop the whole child, preparing them to make a positive influence in the world .’
We are passionate about the application and working practice of these Values, and so it is important to us that, as you wander through this website, you can actively trace their influence and capacity to lift everybody up, to be the best they can be. It is what makes all the difference.
Pre-Prep Core Values
In the Pre-Prep we follow 4 core values which sit at the heart of daily school life and form the basis of every child’s pastoral and academic development.
We enjoy helping our friends. We understand that if we show kindness to others we can expect them to be kind to us.
We understand that not everything at school is easy and we may find some things difficult. We will always try and give our best.
We think before sharing our thoughts and love using our brains to solve problems.
We love exploring our own and others’ ideas in our learning.
Prep Core Values
We want to develop ourselves as well-rounded individuals and as responsible members of society. We focus on 8 core values at Salisbury Cathedral School which are explored in different ways during our time here. These are qualities we hope will continue to be important throughout our lives.
We understand the needs of the world and work hard to ensure that those around us are happy.
We celebrate creativity in all its forms and enjoy exploring our own and others’ creative ideas.
We ask questions and want to know answers. We see learning as something special that we want to keep in our lives.
We take our responsibilities seriously and understand that we are role models to others. We lead by example by communicating well in the expectation that others will follow.
We understand that sometimes we face challenges and we aim to approach these with a positive outlook and a desire to do well. We understand it is important to bounce back from failures.
We reflect on our own lives, taking responsibility for and managing our own choices, knowing when to ask for support and when to work independently in order that we may achieve our goals.
We recognise the different strengths in others and ourselves and we enjoy playing our role as part of a team.
We give consideration to our thoughts before sharing them, we self-reflect and embrace creative solutions to solving problems.
