Who’s watching the rugby?


Did you know the World Rugby values are very similar to our values at Lawford Mead Primary?

Here are the rugby values.  Can you see our values there too?

INTEGRITY: Integrity is central to the fabric of the Game and is generated through honesty and fair play.

PASSION: Rugby people have a passionate enthusiasm for the Game. Rugby generates excitement, emotional attachment and a sense of belonging to the global Rugby Family

SOLIDARITY: Rugby provides a unifying spirit that leads to life-long friendships, camaraderie, teamwork and loyalty which transcends cultural, geographic, political and religious differences.

DISCIPLINE: Discipline is an integral part of the Game both on and off the field and is reflected through adherence to the Laws, the Regulations and Rugby’s core values.

RESPECT: Respect for team mates, opponents, match officials and those involved in the Game is paramount.

We talked about the value of RESPECT in assembly this week.  How can you show respect in school?

“To thine own self be true…”









Hello again,

A new week brings new opportunities to show our school values as we learn.

In assembly this week we talked about our 2nd value, INTEGRITY.

In Hamlet, one of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays, the character Polonius gives this advice to his son:

“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

He wanted his son to be honest with himself and with others,  to live his life by what he believed was right.

What is your understanding of the word INTEGRITY? Reply to this post and let me know.  How can you show integrity?

Proud to be passionate!




Hello everyone,

In last week’s Monday assemblies we talked about our school value of PASSION.  Our brilliant caretaker Rob talked to Key Stage 2 about the many passions and hobbies he has had over the years. Here is a picture of him enjoying just two of them!  Rob has always been passionate about learning new skills and it has led to him having an AMAZING life!

I hope you will all pursue your passions in school and in the future.
