As a school we were inspired to use the values promoted by Tony Booth in his ‘Index for Inclusion’. Teaching and non-teaching staff, governors and children from School Council decided to use the beautiful blossoming tree in our school grounds as inspiration for our ‘Values Tree’. Our talented artist, Joy Holden who is one of our TAs, translated our ideas in to this permanent display in our school hall.
Tony Booth promoted his ‘Index for Inclusion’ by walking the Boudicca Way, and Norfolk schools were invited to celebrate this. We chose to create Iceni style warrior shields incorporating the values that are personal to their families.
The children were delighted to show Tony their shields when he called in to visit during his walk, and we were very proud that he included them in his book.
