As a Church of England school, Christian values are at the heart of all we do. Through consultation with parents, staff and governors, we have developed our own school values which are embedded throughout our curriculum.
Through teaching of these values we aim to:
- Inspire the future of each pupil through making learning fun and creative
- Support pupils in becoming independent, articulate thinkers and learners who have confidence to achieve their ambitions
- Build a team who will listen to pupils, be fair and helpful, and lead them in knowing and sharing God’s love
- Support teachers in their careers and contribution to a vibrant and dynamic Christian community
- Provide a broad and balanced curriculum infused with Christian values
"Let us make every effort to do what leads to peace and to the strengthening of one another” (Romans 14:19)
We appreciate that each one of us is a unique human being created by God. In response, we are always accepting of others and ourselves, and seek to celebrate our diversity.
“I speak to you as my friends” (John 15:15)
We recognise that Jesus came in to the world so that everyone could experience the 'forever friendship' that God offers. In response, we always treat others, as we would like to be treated ourselves.
"Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength” (Isaiah 40:31)
We know that Christian hope is rooted in the love and faithfulness of God, who is a ‘strong rock’ and one whose promises can be trusted. In response, we see learning as an open-ended and hopeful activity involving the mind, body and soul for pupils and staff.
"The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy” (Psalm 126:3)
We understand that joy comes from knowing God through Jesus Christ in the power of the Spirit. In response, we celebrate everything that is good about our school and wider community, and seek to be a source of joy to others.
“Show proper respect to everyone” (1 Peter 2:17)
We value the beautiful world that God has created for us to enjoy with others. In response, we seek to live with respect for the environment and each other, especially those who care for us at home, at school and in the wider community.
"I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness” (John 10:10)
We know that God wants us to flourish as human beings and to be the best that we can be. In response, we value and nurture all that leads to the creation of a sense of wellbeing in our lives as individuals and a community.
The school expects high standards of behaviour from all children and for every member of its community to show Christian values at all time. Our ‘Star’ helps to develop a consistent approach to encouraging good behaviour and positive relationships between staff and pupils and between pupils themselves.
