School Values

The school values; RESPECT, COURAGE, INTEGRITY, COMPASSION AND HOPE, are key to our identity as a Church of England school community. Our School Values Ambassadors work with Mrs Seymour to devise activities to develop these values in the life of the school. Representatives from staff and governors work together in the Ethos Committee to develop the school's Christian distinctiveness.




We value respect and fairness. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all members of the school community feel proud of their identity and participate fully in school life.

Treat others just as you want to be treated. Luke 6:31

We value courage. We are a growth mindset school; we seek challenge, we are resolute in the face of adversity.

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

We value integrity. We are honest and learn to trust each other.

Whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8

We value compassion, care and kindness.

Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God. 1 Peter 4:10

We value hope; we encourage everyone to look on the bright side, to be optimistic and thankful for all the good things in our lives.

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12:12
