Sherwood Park School Values


Sherwood Park Primary School is a warm, welcoming and inclusive school within the local community of Sidcup. Our motto, ‘Learning for Life Together’, underpins our commitment to working in partnership with children, parents and governors to ensure the very best outcomes for every child. We provide learning opportunities which prepare children for every step of their academic journey and for life in the future. It is our responsibility to support every young person to reach his or her potential, regardless of background. This is underpinned by three goals:

  • Safety and Wellbeing
  • Educational Excellence Everywhere
  • Preparation for secondary transition and the journey into adult life

At Sherwood Park we promote the following values to support pupils on their journey through life and to ensure they are happy; understand how to be good citizens and can make a positive contribution to society.


‘The greatest glory in life lies in never falling, but in rising every time when we fall.’


'Coming together is a beginning- Keeping together is progress-Working together is success-Achieving together is a celebration'



'Give it to Get it!'


'Accept responsibility for your actions and take ownership of your mistakes.'

Sherwood Park and British Values

At Sherwood Park Primary School, we develop and promote British Values through our own school values and within our curriculum.


British Values

The Rule of Law


Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect

Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs


To do this our children will develop;

  • An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
  • An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
  • An acceptance that people having different faiths and beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of discriminatory behaviour
  • An understanding of the importance or identifying and combating discrimination
