The Amanda Tanner We CARE Award 2020



In April 2020, we were deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Amanda, who had been a Governor at the school since 2015 and was champion of our We CARE Values.  Always thinking of others, Amanda wanted to leave something as a legacy to MOSPS and we wanted to always remember her and what she did for our school.


So this year we are proud to be presenting ‘The Amanda Tanner We CARE Award’, a beautiful, golden sailing boat that represents Amanda’s spirit and passion for sailing and exploration. The award has gone to a pupil that has shown their We CARE Values (Courage, Aspire, Respect and Explore) in everything they have done this year. Teachers across the school were asked to nominate a pupil and the headteacher and governors of the school had the final vote.


Congratulations to all our nominees :


Esme – Foxes, Lucas – Badgers, Amy  - Class 3, Brooke - Class 4, Harry - Class 5, Thea - Class 6, Frances  - Class 8, Daisy - Class 9, Alfie Class – 10, Rebekah – 11


The winner - Luke  (Class 7)

 Winner of the Amanda Tanner We CARE Award 2020



All of the staff, governors and children are extremely proud of Luke and agree that he is a very worthy winner. Luke’s class teacher Miss Walton said:


"Luke is always respectful of others, always ready to learn and is an excellent role model to the other children at school. He has shown his We CARE values in many ways during the year and always gives everything a go. He showed courage by taking part in the Young Voices concert in London where he represented the school brilliantly and showed so much enthusiasm. He also presented to over 30 people from the United Nations Lymington Branch and other visitors as part of our Global Learning Talk. He took part in our Freedom to Learn 2.6 Challenge during lockdown by walking, running or jogging 2.6 miles for 10 days to raise money for Freedom to Learn. Luke has been emailing me every week sharing his work and what he has been up to during the time he's been at home, but also asking how I am and being genuinely interested in what is going on at school and what I've been up to as well."


Our Christian Ethos & Our 'We CARE' Values


The school's Christian values are embedded into the curriculum at MOSPS through collective worship, Religious Education lessons and providing a landscape against which we learn. They also give spiritual foundation for our 'We CARE' values, allowing our pupils to explore questions, thoughts and ideas that arise out of these core values through the story of God.

COURAGE is a core value for our school and it can be explored through many stories within the Bible. Through the life of Jesus we can draw inspiration for having the courage to stand up for what is right in all circumstances and we can find the courage to persevere in times of great challenge from the understanding that "...the Lord your God is with us wherever we go."  Joshua 1:9

We want our pupils to ASPIRE to achieve their personal best and take action for a better world and through the stories of Jesus's life we can draw inspiration to overcome obstacles on the way to understanding who we are and who we are made to become.
RESPECT is an important core value because it is the foundation stone of relationships within our school and wider community. Through the Bible we can explore how God encourages us to respect all others, regardless of differences, values and beliefs, and to respect ourselves.
We want our pupils to EXPLORE who they are, EXPLORE their faith and discover God's world and their place in it.  As a school we want our pupils to recognise the gifts they have been given for the benefit of the whole world.
