Values and Ethos

Our School Values

Together with the children, we have chosen four school values which are at the core of everything that we do at Doddi. Our school values are: Respect, Resilience, Aspiration and Kindness.

We want Doddiscombsleigh to be a school where:

  • We are a centre of excellence in education
  • We are a place where children enjoy learning
  • We are a community in which all members work in partnership, creating a positive environment
  • We are a community where everyone is valued and respected and has the confidence to achieve their best


  • To develop self-awareness, a positive self- image and the confidence to take advantage of opportunities
  • To help children use language and number efficiently
  • To develop each child’s own initiative, talents and personalities
  • To help children develop lively and enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills
  • To promote attitudes, practices and understanding conducive to good health
  • To help children acquire knowledge and skills relevant to adult life and employment in a fast changing world
  • To help children develop a respect for religious and moral values, other races, religions and ways of life
