Our Values

"The school’s vision and values are integral to the bold decisions that leaders make about school development."

SIAMS November 2021

Through many meetings and consultations with staff, pupils, governors and parents, we have explored values and identified a universal set of values which we all share and would like to emphasise in the school.  The core values are respect, friendship, perseverance and forgiveness.

In addition to our core Christian values, we have a focus on an additional eight.  One value is the focus for the term. Worship is led round that 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 all our Christian values, with the teachings of Christ at the centre.

The way our children live out our school's Christian values, is 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 'Friendship'.

"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 dignity and 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
  • An understanding of their citizenship of the school, the wider community and the difference that they can make to aspects of social injustice or inequality.
