School Values

Our School Values

Our mission is underpinned by our Christian school values. Below you can see a list of our values. Our overarching value is Love and underneath in bold you can see the core values decided on by the school community. We believe that ‘love’ encompasses many of the attributes outlined below:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” Corinthians 13: 4-5

Compassion Respect Friendship Responsibility Forgiveness Service

Our key values are all ways of showing love for one another and for God’s world. By focusing on the above, whilst building compassionate, respectful relationships we believe that our children will be ready to learn and to grow as confident, well-rounded individuals who are ready to face the next stage of their journey through life.  

Values help us to build the ethos and common purpose of our school and enable our children to become valuable, caring members of the different communities to which they belong and be able to reflect on and take responsibility for making the right decisions about the path their lives take.

In order to do this, it is important that our values thread seamlessly through school life. We use them as part of our everyday language – you will hear them in conversations between children and staff. However, we also ensure that we teach them in a more structured way:

  • 5 acts of collective worship a week

  • One core value is taught each term over the 6 terms a year through Whole School and Key Stage collective worship on a Monday and Tuesday. The other values are explicitly taught in our Wednesday Talk to God sessions – these are classroom based.

  • The value of the term is displayed in each classroom.

  • Golden Threads in our Curriculum
