Golden Rules & Values

Golden Rules


At Hadlow Primary School we have six Golden Rules that we expect every child in the school to follow, in order for them to lead a safe and enjoyable school life. We have a Golden Rules poster visible in every learning environment to remind the children about how to learn and behave positively; these posters were designed and created by the children.



Be Honest - do not cover up the truth

Work Hard - do not disturb others

Listen to Others - do not interrupt

Look after Property - do not waste or damage things

Be Gentle - do not hurt others

Be Kind and Helpful - do not hurt people's feelings

School Values


At Hadlow Primary School, we endeavour for our pupils to become well rounded, confident and accomplished learners who have purposeful, transferrable skills that they can apply to all of their learning.

We endeavour to promote positive and effective behaviour for learning through our whole school values. These values are embedded in everyday teaching and learning to ensure that our children develop skills that shape them to become lifelong learners.


We have five school values that underpin the ethos of the school and play a huge part in the curriculum; Collaboration, Resilience, Independence, Creativity and Reflection.

The children have created learning characters for each of the values, which remind the children of what these values ‘look’ like and these are visible in all learning environments in the school.

British Values


We recognise and acknowledge the diverse society which our children are part of.

British Values underpin all that we do at Hadlow Primary School. We actively promote fundamental British values, through challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to them. Children are encouraged to use these values to:


  • Develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Distinguish between right and wrong and to respect the rules of the school and wider society

  • Accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and contribute positively to other people’s lives

  • Show an understanding and tolerance of different faiths and cultures

  • Respect other people and the need for democracy
