Our Christian values
Core Values: Trust, Compassion, Forgiveness
Class Values: Creation (Nursery), Friendship (Reception), Thankfulness (Year 1), Hope (Year 2), Reverence (Year 3), Perseverance (Year 4), Peace (Year 5), Justice (Year 6)
Each class is named after a Christian Value. Each year the children in that class will experience this value through displays of work, shared class assemblies and RE lessons. In this way, as each child progresses through the school, they visit each of the values each year.
Our core values and class values form the basis of our programme of Collective Worship.
We have a Value of the month that we explore through Collective Worship, these values underpin our curriculum, our behaviour policy and the interaction between all stakeholders within school.
On a Friday, our Collective Worship celebrates children who have been witnessed demonstrating our values. They receive a certificate to take home and a leaf is put onto our Values Tree.
Pupils also have the opportunity to nominate each other for demonstrating the value on our Value of the Month display.
Our faith team is made up from a range of stakeholders in school:
- Sue (Governor)
