ValuesAs part of the St Peter’s School Foundation, we adopt seven values in every aspect of our daily life: Friendship, Trust, Wisdom, Compassion, Endurance, Humility, and Hope.

The values are followed by all members of our community – pupils, teaching and support staff, parents and governors – across the three schools.

At St Olave's these values are reflected in our core expectations, which make it easy for all our pupils to remember and meet our standards in their daily life at school.  The core expectations are:

  • Be honest
  • Act responsibly
  • Listen to each other
  • Do your best to be your best
  • Treat others as you want to be treated

The Seven Values

Friendship: To be a welcoming, caring and inclusive community in which we can all feel valued and grow in confidence.

Trust: To speak with honesty and conviction, to listen carefully and openly, and promote strong relationships of trust and loyalty.

Wisdom: To develop enquiring minds and a lifelong love of learning, and provide the inspiration to achieve, through creative teaching and a breadth of extra-curricular opportunity.

Compassion: To encourage self-respect, care for others and an active interest in the world beyond the school.

Endurance: To work hard and participate with whole-hearted commitment and resilience, reflecting on our disappointments and short-comings with honesty.

Humility: To conduct ourselves with generosity of spirit, praising effort and fair play and celebrating our successes with modesty.

Hope: To prepare for the future, always seeking to improve, and approaching each challenge and opportunity with energy and optimism.
