The Holwell Values
At Holwell Primary School, we believe that positive behaviour is essential to the creation of a safe environment where everyone’s rights are respected and their responsibilities understood.
Our school motto is a constant reminder of what we should aspire towards. Learning today for our tomorrow is at the heart of the ethos of Holwell school along with our key values of Respect, Independence, Co-operation, Resilience, Aspiration and Courage. These values are also the names of the 6 'Houses'. Promoting good behaviour is an integral part of our curriculum at Holwell and is embedded within our intent to provide children with opportunities to develop pro-social behaviours and independence to control their own behaviour and make positive choices.
Our values are represented by the RICRAC Holwell Heroes who help teach, model and recognise positive behaviour within our school and the wider community.
