At Wessex, our vision and values underpin all aspects of the curriculum and school life. We have chosen special values that we aim to instill in all our children and that best describe what we want our children to have achieved by the time they leave us to move to the next stage of their education.
We celebrate these values through ‘catching’ our children who live them daily – whether that be through their lessons or any other aspect of their life at Wessex. We talk about them daily, present certificates to demonstrate children’s success and talk openly about the words and what they mean for Wessex.
