The vision of the Valuing Children Initiative is the creation of a society in which all children can flourish, have a safe, caring and supportive childhood and maximise their potential.

Personal development and emotional intelligence as markers for children’s progress 🧡
Wonderful drive from Guildford Grammar School in all inclusive opportunities for children 👧🏼👦🏿.

A true advocate in valuing children. From our work with Guildford GS- you can feel the positive and progressive vibes of valuing children through the school culture. Keep up the great work GGS 🙌

#valuingchildren 🧡Primary school principal Clark Wight doesn't mince his words about what he thinks of semester report cards that use A–E grades to assess student performance in each subject.

The head of Guildford Grammar Preparatory School said he also has "massive issues" with C's being described as meaning "satisfactory".

"I am not sure what clever person thought that the word satisfactory was a good way to describe a student working at the expected level", he said.

"If you're a C student all the way through school, you're actually doing really well and it's something to celebrate."

"You're working at year level and doing what you should be doing but it doesn't look that way."

COMPETENCIES PRIORITISED

Mr Clark says his school is introducing a new section to its junior reports this semester, focusing on personal development and emotional intelligence.

"We have moved personal development to the front page of the semester report as this is what we value and you put what you value most first," Mr Wight explained.

Should it be adopted by more schools? 👇💬
