Values & Ethos

Manland Primary School is a supportive, caring community in which we encourage each other to achieve our potential in everything that we do. We have our own school values which we encourage the whole school community to demonstrate.  These values help us to become considerate of others in our school, as well as, helping us to become thoughtful citizens in the wider world.  Our whole school values run alongside our work on British Values. We have a Manland Values cup which is awarded each week to a pupil who has demonstrated one, or more, of our values.

Empowering children to lead fulfilling lives


This term we are focusing on our value of Aspiration and we started this off this week with the first of our parent/carer talks on aspirational jobs!

A big thank you to Joshua (Year 4) and Bethany’s (Year 2) Mum, Dr Liu, for coming in to talk to the children all about her job as an anaesthetist.

The children really enjoyed hearing all about Dr Liu’s work at Luton and Dunstable Hospital, helping people who are poorly and in pain. 

Thank you Dr Liu for everything you do to help people and for providing our pupils with such high aspirations.

Our series of talks by parents/carers on the topic of aspirational jobs has been going incredibly well – our children have had the opportunity to hear about a wide and varied selection of jobs and we know many of them have been inspired as a result of these talks.  Thank you to all the parents and carers who have come in to talk to our pupils.  

Manland Values Trophy Winners

Ava is a remarkable student who displays a ‘never give up’ attitude.  She always listens to every instruction and because of this, produces high quality work.

Ava gives her all in every lesson, bravely taking risks and always trying her hardest even when unsure. She takes on feedback and looks to improve her work at every opportunity.

Ava is also welcoming, friendly and approachable, always ready to lend a listening ear or offer a boost of encouragement to her friends. She genuinely cares for her friends and is an inspiration

As we end the school year, I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving, well done Ava!

Throughout her time in Year 2, Imogen has continuously impressed all those she meets.

Every morning, she will enter the classroom with a huge smile on her face and cracks straight on with her soft start work, looking for ways she can stretch herself and help those around her.  This positive approach continues all through the day.

Imogen’s kind nature means that she is a friend to all.  She will welcome anyone into her games and is sensible and level-headed when dealing with conflict.  She really is an inspiration to all those around her.

Imogen’s sensible and mature manner is not just evident in school.  I have been so impressed by the way she has represented herself, our class and the school on our trips this year.  Not only has she shown respect to both our surroundings and members of the public but she has engaged in workshops and conversation, developing her understanding of the areas we have visited.

I am excited to see how she continues to grow and challenge herself as she moves into Year 3.  Well done Imogen!

Congratulations to Lottie who is the 10th May recipient of the Manland Values Award! 

Lottie has high aspirations, pushing herself to achieve and she has made excellent progress – particularly in reading. 

Lottie has great ideas for how to approach problems and always approaches her work with enthusiasm and creativity. She takes responsibility, always following classroom expectations and helping her friends.

Recently Lottie impressed us with a concert she put on, making tickets and recruiting friends to make popcorn. She is a fantastic singer and rivals Mr Spendlove with her enthusiasm leading the class in song!

Lottie should be very proud of all her hard work this year.   Well done Lottie!

Maia has a strong sense of integrity and a quiet determination that permeates all that she does.  She works hard in all lessons, so that her tasks are completed to the highest quality.  Maia works well individually but equally enjoys working with a learning partner to thrash out ideas and discuss possibilities! 

Beneath her quiet demeanour, Maia’s strives to set herself targets and thinks about the steps she must take to meet these.  This often involves Maia taking a risk and pushing herself out of her comfort zone.  It is a credit to her that she pushes herself to meet her targets, setting herself more challenges to accomplish. 

Maia’s caring nature means she is a friend to all and has a calming influence on those around her.  Maia epitomises all of the Manland values each day and is an absolute credit to Year 6.

Annabelle constantly displays the value of “inspiration”. She leads by example and always tries her hardest at everything, even if she finds it difficult.

Recently, I have been so impressed with Annabelle’s Maths where you can see the effort she is putting in and the progress that she is making. Well done!

Back in the autumn term I was lucky enough to watch Annabelle playing football and I was impressed with her determination and the effort that she put into the games that she played.

I am proud to be her teacher every day.  Well done Annabelle.

Since William stepped into Year 4, he has been setting the bar high for himself across all subjects.  His determination and willingness to take on challenges in every subject is truly inspiring.

William is also inspirational in the sporting arena, especially in football. What really makes him shine is how he is always there to support his friends. 

William, you should be so proud of yourself. Keep being amazing! You are going to do incredible things on your Manland journey.

Gene from Year 5 is the winner of the 15th March Manland Values Award!  Gene has worked very hard this year and impresses me every day. He is responsible and comes into school each day ready to learn. He endeavours to do his best, striving to challenge himself and inspire others. I was impressed with how he inspired others with his amazing ideas on the book Flotsam.

Gene not only works hard at the academic side of school, but he has also represented the school in the football and rugby teams.

Gene, we want you to know how well you are doing, especially as you don’t always recognise this yourself. I am incredibly proud to be your teacher. Well done Gene!

‘T’ for Tay, ‘t’ for tenacity!  As the last few months of the year have ticked by, I have been struck by Tay’s determination, perseverance and resolve.  Although it is true to say that Tay applies herself to all tasks with 100% effort, she really shines when faced with tricky tasks.  Tay thinks back to previous learning and makes use of previous examples and models to help her make the links she needs to in order to solve a problem.  Tay never gives up and never becomes downhearted.  Demonstrating these qualities consistently means that Tay has made excellent progress. 

It has also been delightful to watch her confidence grow!  Tay has a lovely sense of humour and this puts her in good stead for when things are not smooth-sailing.  Tay cares deeply about her friends – her empathic nature means she’s usually the first to offer support or a cheer of encouragement.  Tay, you are a fabulous member of Year 6 and it’s great fun being your teacher – well done.

Oli consistently shows all the Manland values and is regularly praised for being a role model.  He holds the door for others, walks sensibly in corridors and is a kind friend to his peers. 

Oli shows excellent learning behaviours, listening attentively, making positive contributions and not being afraid to disagree with peers if he has a good idea or knowledge to share.  We are so proud to have Oli in our class and he certainly deserves the Manland Values Award!

Camille displays all the Manland Values in her day to day life. In lessons, she always strives to complete her work to the best it can possibly be.  Camille also challenges herself at home too, reading and researching topics and sharing this knowledge. 

Camille is always smiling and makes everyone feel included.  She is optimistic and caring, helping others to see the positives.  She is always respectful and polite, greeting everyone with a ‘good morning’ or a ‘thank you for teaching us that lesson.’

Thank you, Camille, for being such a wonderful person and dedicated student. We’re very lucky to have you in Year 4! 

Lottie shows our Manland values every day.  She has high aspirations in all her work, and has made amazing progress in her writing.  Her homework is exemplary.  She always approaches tasks in a creative way and has “wow”ed the class with an impressive story map and some fabulous colour mixing.

Lottie always takes responsibility for herself and her learning, and ever offers to help others with tidying.  Lottie, you are an inspiration!

Matilda has a quiet confidence that permeates all that she does.  Matilda’s strong sense of integrity and purpose means she strives to contribute to her community. 

Matilda always asks herself the question ‘what can I do?’.  Matilda looks for opportunities to improve our school so that it is a positive place for all.  This has been demonstrated in the various roles that Matilda has held throughout her time at Manland: School Council, Play Leader and now Deputy Prime Minister.  But it’s not all business!  Matilda’s creative flair means it’s always delightful to read through the writing she produces in lessons.   

If one looks closely, one might also spot your glint of determination that means you will achieve everything you want to, and more. Matilda, you are an absolute asset to our school, and to our class.   

Benjamin has been working so hard this year to challenge himself in all areas of the curriculum.  Since returning after Christmas, Benjamin has been really focusing on his reading and writing and setting himself high aspirations.

In reading, Benjamin is quickly working his way through the book bands and is becoming a confident and passionate reader.  In writing, Benjamin’s work has been informative, and included features from our success criteria as well as correct punctuation!

We are so proud of all of Benjamin’s fantastic work and we can’t wait to see how his aspiration and determination continue and grow for the rest of the year. Well done Benjamin!

Scarlett consistently works hard at school demonstrating the Manland value of responsibility every day. She is a kind and caring person who supports her peers in many ways. She enjoys and excels at sport. 

Scarlett is also aspirational with her attitude to learning. She arrives at school promptly, is always ready to learn and completes every task to the best of her ability. 

I was particularly impressed how Scarlett’s confidence has grown over this year. She even demonstrated her gymnastics skills in front of the class!  

Scarlett is a pleasure to teach and I am very proud to be her teacher.  Well done and keep up the hard work! 

I know that any adult who knows Evie will be nodding their head and agreeing with me when I say that Evie encapsulates all of our Manland values, all day, every day! 

Evie’s positivity, sense of humour and resilience is infectious and permeates all that she does.  Evie is a kind, reflective and caring member of our class and is a good friend to all.  More recently, Evie was congratulated by a member of staff for her exemplary manners and also by a prospective parent, who emailed Mrs Wicks to let her know how impressed she was with Evie and her friends. 

You simply are a star who shines ever so brightly Evie – well done!  

Lucy demonstrates the Manland value of responsibility every day. She is a kind and caring person who supports her peers in many ways. Equally, she is very happy to help in class, asking if she is needed to hand out books or to collect equipment etc.

I was particularly impressed with Lucy’s recount on the life of William the Conqueror where she both displayed the historical knowledge that we have learnt last half term and used the techniques taught in English. I am very proud to be her teacher.  Well done Lucy and keep up the hard work!

In the short time that I’ve been Lewis’ teacher, I’ve been struck by his diligence and attentiveness. He listens carefully to explanations and inspires others around him to do the same. He takes on new vocabulary and aspires to use it both when answering questions verbally, and in his own written work. He sets himself challenges and delights in sharing his successes. When lining up and transitioning around the school, Lewis is a role model to those around him and leads by example. 

Lewis, I am proud to have you in Year 3 and I’m looking forward to seeing how much you can achieve this year!  Mr Jones.

Anyone who knows Oliver will be struck by his energy, zest and infectious smile!

 Oliver is an active participant in lessons: he thinks about new learning, makes rapid links to what he has already learned and demonstrates new skills straight away. During lessons, I can almost hear his brain pondering ‘what do I think about this? How can I use this? Is this the best strategy?’ Oliver thinks carefully about the success criteria and applies this fastidiously in all of his tasks.

Oliver has high expectations of himself and is always willing to go a step further – one challenge is never enough! His manners are exemplary, and he cares deeply about his friends. Oliver’s strong sense of fairness and reflective nature means he is an inspiration to those around him. I am already so proud of Oliver and know he has an exciting year ahead!

Jem is an all-round pupil, who puts their all into everything that they do.  He shows responsibility every day in class, by respecting both the adults and peers.

Jem is always ready to learn and model that learning behaviour to others in class.  He is often willing to make contributions in class and is keen to share his ideas. 

Jem is aspirational because he always listens to feedback given and acts on that advice.  I was particularly impressed with Jem’s recent suspense story where he used some wonderful descriptive language that we had been learning about in class. I am so very impressed and proud of the hard work that he has put into this first half term in Year 5. 

Thank you, and congratulations Jem!

Saeed always comes into school with a smile on his face and a positive attitude. In every lesson he takes responsibility for his own learning by being ready, listening carefully and following instructions. 

Saeed always tries his very best with all his work and shows aspiration by challenging himself.

Saeed is a polite and helpful member of our class. He holds the door in the corridor and when he was the register monitor, he completed his role sensibly, without being reminded. 

Saeed should be really proud of the inspirational start he has made to Year 1. 

Jude is a dedicated student and has embarked on this academic year with unwavering motivation and enthusiasm.

Each day he starts with a positive and focused attitude, ready to seize every lesson as an opportunity for growth of knowledge.

Jude has also demonstrated a remarkable maturity and friendly manner that leaves a lasting impression on all. He consistently uplifts his learning partners, engages in joyful play during break and lunch times, and radiates positivity towards all his classmates.

As his teacher, I couldn’t be prouder of the kind and hardworking student I have in my class.

Well done Jude!

Since the beginning of term, Tom has been an inspiration to all of his classmates. From the moment he enters the classroom, to the moment he leaves at the end of the day, Tom ensures that he is always on task and aspiring to be the best learner he can.  

Tom also takes responsibility for his own learning and endeavours to share his understanding with those around him.  

Tom should be so proud of this fantastic start to the year and I look forward to seeing how his positive attitude to learning continues.

As part of the school community and the class community, it’s really important that everyone does the right thing and is where they need to be at the right time.  In the short time that I’ve been Maxi’s teacher, I’ve been struck by his conscientiousness, diligence and attentiveness.

He listens carefully to explanations, which means that I can give him feedback in the lesson and very quickly move his learning forward.  When lining up and transitioning around the school, Maxi is a role model to those around him and leads by example.  He never needs reminding or refocussing and that in itself, is impressive! 

Maxi, you are inspirational! I am very much enjoying having you in year 6 and I’m looking forward to our Year 6 journey – it’s going to be a great year!

Sophia’s behaviour in class is inspirational to her peers. She listens to the teacher all of the time and has quickly learnt all of the Reception class routines. She has excellent behaviour for learning and participates in lessons, plays with her friends in a kind way and always remembers her manners.

She is very independent and takes responsibility for her belongings. She’s a joy to have in Reception and really is an inspiration to other pupils.
