As if by magic the Easter break is over and we look forward to the start of the summer term. As the days grow longer and the sun shines brighter it’s time for us also to consider which of our Etone Values is the spotlight for this half term.
Each half term we focus on one of our six key Etone Values which along with our eight Employability Skills make up the Etone Learner. Across our broad curriculum and pupil’s school life there are endless opportunities to learn, develop and consider those skills and values with these planned intrinsically within lessons, extracurricular clubs and thorough our Form Time and Theme of the Week programme. This half term the focus is on Trustworthiness. As a value it is an extremely important one. Any pupil at Etone is relied upon to be honest and accepting of their roles in making the school the very best it can be.
For example with us set to launch our Year 10 Prefect application process in the coming weeks it gives our Year 10 pupils the chance to take on a key leadership role within the school. As part of that role our prefects are the ambassadors of our school, through providing tours and guidance to visitors of the school and supporting their peers the role requires a great deal of self-belief but also trust. To that end we can’t wait to show the trust we do have I our pupils. Across this half term each week pupils will get the chance to earn the Student of the Week in their form by showing how they have recognised the value of Trustworthiness. These pupils then receive a certificate and are applauded in assembly for being ambassadors of Etone Values.
Coupling our awards across the term our Theme of the Week each week will link to the value of Trustworthiness as we head into the final weeks prior to the summer holidays. We TRUST you are as excited as us.
