As a school we worked together with the children, staff, parents, Reverend Charlie and the governors to agree those values which we feel are important for our school and its community. The British values of democracy, tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, rule of law, mutual respect and individual liberty are reflected in our Christian values. As a school all values are explored and discussed through a range of curriculum areas including RE, PSHE, topic eg Romans, Greeks; Collective Worship and pupil voice such as the school council and Eco-Warriors.
Our 4:13 group are currently exploring ways to enhance Collective Woship and are currently thinking about organising a Christmas Trail.

Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive. Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible
