Towards the end of 2015 the school reviewed the key Christian values on which we were to focus. Parents, pupils and staff were involved in this through a questionnaire. The outcomes were discussed at a joint meeting of Staff and Governors in January 2016.
As a result of this the Federation decided to embrace three key Christian values:
Love, Creativity and Strength.
Each value also emphasises the qualities of each part of the Trinity.
Each of the key values have been subdivided into different aspects such as love into friendship, complassion, kindness and respect: creativity into curiosity and wisdom and strength into resilience, courage and self-disipline. Each theme is clearly linked to a Bible story and a "big question" such as, "Are people who are happy more thankful than those who are not?"
Here we are enjoying, celebrating and demonstrating our values: embedded during work and play.
Class 1 enjoyed creating Bible story pictures. "We show creativity in our lessons by working together using different materials to illustrate the story"
"We show strength because we keep going and never give up" Sophie, Class 3
"We show love by listening to each others ideas" William, Class 3.
"We show love by caring for our friends" Chloe, Class 3.

In addition the themes are nurtured in different ways. This includes:
