Our School Values lie at the heart of all that we do.
Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, for as long as you can. John Wesley
Our School Values lie at the heart of all that we do. This was recognized by our recent Ofsted inspector:
The care and support of pupils are outstanding. The positive rapport between pupils and staff underpins the culture and ethos of the school. Its core values, which relate to compassion, trust, courage, hope, peace and friendship, are palpable.

Our Values form the focus of our teaching in collective worship, RE and PSHCE . They are: –
Friendship– mutual support and working together towards an agreed result. Treating other people gently and celebrating them for who they are. Learning to make friends and nurture friendships, looking after each other and including those who feel left out. Including building trust and speaking the truth with one another.
Respect– learning to take responsibility by showing consideration of others whether that is their faith or view point. Recognising that everyone is equal, no matter who they are or where they come from, whatever their ability, faith, colour or gender.
Hope– a positive outlook that looks optimistically and embraces life and all its opportunities, whilst promoting peace and harmony.
Forgiveness– a grudge can cause bitterness and revenge only escalates situations. Forgiving others resolves conflicts and shows that love and humility can overcome anything.
Perseverance– learning to be tenacious and trying hard to achieve, overcoming obstacles and sticking to our beliefs. Seeing things through to completion even if this means facing opposition or danger and standing up for what is right
Generosity– an open handed, unselfish sharing of things, time, possessions, friendship that shows the way others are valued. Being willing to give of our time and help those in need and not ask for anything in return, reflecting our thankfulness for our lives and all that we are blessed with.
