Mutual Respect

At Thorpe Lea, we encourage mutual respect between children, staff and parents. We recognise that the way students treat each other as people is a firm foundation to a healthy life at school, at home and in the community.

By emphasising empathy, good character and other important life skills, we constantly strive to create well-rounded and thoughtful students. We value one another as unique and special individuals; we celebrate diversity and encourage our community to celebrate different cultures and beliefs.

We consistently use good manners, saying ‘please,’ ‘thank you’ and ‘excuse me’; we always allow others to go first. At Thorpe Lea, we do not use put downs, sarcasm or make fun of other people’s mistakes, we continue to embrace individuality.

We promote mutual respect by being a close community where we celebrate each other’s successes, acknowledging and supporting the accomplishments of others. We encourage our students to ‘look out’ for their peers, filling them with conscientiousness; creating helpful and generous characters.
