Ethos and Values
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.
Care for one another unconditionally.
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.
Know that we are safe in God’s hands no matter what may happen.
Act with grace, tolerance and forgiveness.
Show people that they matter and that they have value by giving time, listening, showing empathy and concern.
Help others and stand up for others who cannot stand up for themselves.
Be trustworthy and reliable and trust in God.
Be considerate and understand how powerful we are and the damage we can do if that power is not under control.
Learning to be responsible for ourselves – and the importance of holding ourselves in check even in difficult situations.
