Our vision for Roydon Primary School was developed by the values promoted by Tony Booth in his ‘Index for Inclusion’. Teaching and non-teaching staff, governors and children from School Council felt that these reflected the principles we hope to see in our school and wider community.
We were inspired to use the beautiful blossoming tree in our grounds to represent these values spreading throughout our school and overarching all that we do. Our talented artist, Joy Holden who is one of our teaching assistants, translated our ideas in to this permanent display at the entrance to school.
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 our 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.
