As a Church of England school, Christian values influence the daily life of the whole school. Although we support children to develop an understanding of a range of values, we have chosen several values that we think are important for our school. These are community, friendship, forgiveness, truth, thankfulness and courage.
Children learn about the Bible stories associated with these values and are encouraged to ‘live out’ these values through their day to day actions.
Each half term we choose one Christian value to be a focus. These include our school specific values along with other ones. This value is the focus for collective worship and a reflection area and children are helped to identify and share examples of when they have shown this value in their day to day actions. We encourage families to think about this value through our home-school value sheets. Children who bring in an example of something they have done at home relating to this value are awarded a special certificate.

We will also be learning about Lent and Easter – forgiveness is a key message of this time.
The Church of England website has some family friendly information, activities and resources about Lent and Easter that you may like to explore together.
During Lent, Christians often try to do something special or different to help others and be closer to God. The calendar below has some good ideas for a simple activity each day that the whole family can do. Lent Calendar

Well done to all those children who brought in examples of how they had put this value into action at home, by persevering to make some beautiful mosaic pictures. You can see these below.
