Values

CHRISTIAN VALUES

The Christian values and principles we adhere to as a school identify us as a community and confirm the ethos and culture promoted. The 6 values chosen have been carefully selected by the community so that everyone understands the purpose and meaning of each, and is clear about individual and collective responsibility towards upholding such principles. These values are given a termly focus during our times of class and whole school collective worship.

Christian Value: Love

The first Christian value of the school year explores the theme of love.

We began by looking at the poem ‘Footprints In the Sand’ and children created their own footprint designs for a display representing God’s love through the ups and downs of life.

The children then went on to consider how we can show our love to people in our community and have written postcards to be passed on to care watch and delivered to individuals in our community.

Christian Value: Peace

Christian Value: Wisdom
