We are the Ethos leaders of Bishop Bridgeman Church of England Primary School. We would like to tell you a little about our Ethos group and the impact that it has had on our amazing school.
Five years ago Mrs Pilling asked if anyone would like to be part of an Ethos group to help our children understand the new values we were going to work on. Over the past five years Mrs Pilling has enabled us to carry out all sorts of activities, such as leading worship. We meet most lunch times to work on the value for that half term and decide on the activities we would like to do. We now run our group mostly ourselves and meet Mrs Pilling to ask for resources or to discuss larger projects such as the children's ethos conference. We have written and published a book to spread the word and work of what an Ethos group can do. We included all the activities we carried out to enable our school community to live out our core values.
Through our Ethos group we help other schools to understand more about our values and how children and adults can apply these values in their every day lives. We believe through values we have made our school community better citizens and act as good people to help others. We have presented many times to groups of Headteachers and school leaders to showcase our journey and the impact it has had on our school.
