Our Values

"Christian values are at the heart of the school's ethos and underpin the high quality of relationships throughout the school community."

SIAMS February 2015

At an INSET day at the beginning of last year staff explored values and we have identified a universal set of values which we all share and would like to emphasise in the school, the main ones being: respect, friendship and perseverance.

The school has a list of twelve core values. One value is the focus for the term. Worship is led round the relevant value and this is then followed up in the classroom by teachers. These values are displayed in the school hall. We endeavour to build our school on our core values.

The values that the children display are a key strength of the school.

To learn more about our vision and values and how they link to British Values please view the links below.
Our Value this term is 'Generosity'.

"The school is outstanding as a church school because these core values shape relationships and drive the spiritual development of both children and adults."

SIAMS February 2015

Our aim is to foster the intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of all our pupils. We believe that children need a caring, consistent environment where they are treated with respect and where their well-being is seen as paramount.
One way that we imbed the values in our school life is through Valerie Values. Valerie is a toy bear who is awarded in family worship each week to a child who has shown one of our values. Children are encouraged to nominate other children who they have seen demonstrating a value.

We believe that each child should leave school with:

  • A sense of moral and spiritual awareness
  • A sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them
  • A love of learning and the desire to achieve high standards
  • A growing ability to relate to and communicate with other people
  • A sense of their citizenship of the school and the wider community.
