Moulton School Values

"Aim high and together we will succeed"

At Moulton School our values are our principles that guide our thinking and behaviour.

At Moulton School, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Values are intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school.

Our values of curiosity, gratitude, kindness, respect, truthfulness and resilience provide the scaffolding for our school motto, mission and vision. They also provide the foundations for our school rules and behaviour policy.


These values are the basis for the social, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and moral development of the child. We encourage pupils to consider these values, thereby developing knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable them to develop as reflective learners and grow to be stable, educated and emotionally intelligent civilised adults.

Our Timetable of Values





Resilience is important mostly for our mental health. It’s a life skill we take with us into adulthood. It is thought that the more resilient a person is, the less they experience stress as they are equipped to deal with life’s pressures.


Building resilience in children helps them to overcome obstacles more easily and reduces the chances of them suffering from anxiety or other stress-related disorders.



This value is at the core of everything we do in school. It underpins learning through behaviour and one’s attitude to the people and the world around them. We want our whole school community to respect each other. One of the most important things you can teach your child is respect. The best way to teach respect is to show respect. When a child experiences respect, they know what it feels like and begin to understand how important it is.


Truthfulness means we are honest in what we say and do. It means people can rely on us because we have integrity. Honesty is the basis of a trusting relationship.


“Honesty is the best policy. If I lose mine honour, I lose myself.” William Shakespeare.


“To make your children capable of honesty is the beginning of education.” John Ruskin.


‘To be honest with others, you must first be honest with yourself.’ Anon.


Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Kindness means that you treat everyone the best that you can. No matter who they are or how you feel about them you treat them with fairness and respect. We might think of nice things to do and say all day but when we act, that is kindness. It is good to do random acts of kindness


Driven by curiosity, people seek to explore the world. At no time in life is curiosity more powerful than in early childhood.


Gratitude is believed to be one of the healthiest emotions that humans can practice. Being grateful is the kindest gesture that you can show for what you are having and valuing it is the highest form of thoughts.


Teaching children to be “grateful” is important because instilling the sense of the gesture goes beyond good manners.


When children learn about gratitude, they become more sensitive towards the feelings of others. It develops a feeling of empathy in them.


No one is born grateful. Recognising that someone has gone out of their way for you is not a natural behaviour for children to know – it is a quality which is self-acquired.
