Church Schools and School Values

Celebrating 'life in all its fullness' John 10:10 

School Values

Hope, Community, Dignity, Wisdom, Joy and Peace  

Community, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect

Thankfulness, Trust, Perseverance, Justice, Service, Truthfulness


Rooted in Bible teachings, our Christian values guide and teach our whole school community how we can show these values in our everyday lives. 

We express our Christian values in all we think, do, and say, whilst always respecting people of other faiths or none. 

Each term we focus on one value and make links with the seasons of the church.  We use Roots & Fruits and Roots and Fruits 2 which supports our 'whole school' worship, and we celebrate every week with a Christian value award.

Our whole school value in T3 was Perseverance 

Let us run with perseverance the race that lies before us.

Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus on whom our faith depends from beginning to end.

                                                                                                                                              Hebrews 12.1-2

Perseverance is.......

Pressing on

Eager to continue

Running the race

Sticking with things

Encouraging each other to keep going

Valuing the support of others

Eyes fixed on the target

Aiming to complete the task
