At the centre of the school we have faith, hope and love, defined by 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
Our six core values come from this centre, and help us both show and grow faith, hope and love. We explore these values with the children in RE lessons, collective worship and Circle Times, and they inform how we help our children in their relationships with each other. Our values are:
Through our day to day school life, our collective worship, School Council, Circle Times and personal, social and health education we ensure children understand and respect the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Our six core values help children understand and follow these in a deeper way.
