Our Values and Ethos

The following values are shared, owned and understood by our whole school community, including parents, governors, pupils, and staff. We have adopted St. Paul’s analogy of ‘The Fruit of the Spirit’ which are our core Christian values and underpin the ethos of the school.

LOVE

Care for one another unconditionally.

JOY

Find joy not just in earthly things and not from triumphing over someone else, but rather through counting our blessings, growing an appreciative heart, and knowing how precious each of us is to God.

PEACE

Know that we are safe in God’s hands no matter what may happen.

PATIENCE

Act with grace, tolerance and forgiveness.

KINDNESS

Show people that they matter and that they have value by giving time, listening, showing empathy and concern.

GOODNESS

Help others and stand up for others who cannot stand up for themselves.

FAITHFULNESS

Be trustworthy and reliable and trust in God.

GENTLENESS

Be considerate and understand how powerful we are and the damage we can do if that power is not under control.

SELF-CONTROL

Learning to be responsible for ourselves – and the importance of holding ourselves in check even in difficult situations.
