Our Core Values

Our Christian Ethos

As a Church of England school, we have strong links with the local Church – Fauls Holy Immanuel – where we visit for special services and learning opportunities. Our Christian ethos also runs through all areas of our curriculum and our daily Collective Worship allows time for reflection on each week’s theme, local and global current affairs and the British Values we uphold.

Our Vision and Values

“Let your light shine!” (Matthew 5:16)

As children of God, our pupils will share their achievements in fellowship with the whole school community, in a loving and respectful environment. Together, all children and adults will show thankfulness for our world, and use our faith to challenge ourselves to fulfil our God-given potential. Our motto, ‘Let Your Light Shine’, shows how our talents and potential can be illuminated through the example of Jesus’ love, and how Jesus’ attitude can shine through our actions and words.


Our core values:

We base our curriculum on our Christian Values: love, respect, faith, thankfulness and fellowship. We make constant and meaningful connections between these and the children’s learning.

Love: “Love is patient, love is kind” 1 Corinthians 13:4

Our curriculum teaches children how to show each other and themselves kindness and patience; an important part of developing positive mental health. They examine times in history and individuals who have shown (or not) love, and the impact this has.



Respect: “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you” Matthew 7:12

Our curriculum content develops children’s knowledge and understanding of the modern world, along with past events, enabling them to better understand and respect everyone and to celebrate spiritual and cultural differences.



Faith: “Faith can move mountains” Matthew 17:20

Our curriculum supports our aim of ensuring children have a strong sense of faith in their own abilities and in God to support them. It provides all learners with a range of experiences and cultural capital to enable children to identify their talents and to ‘Let their light shine’.



Thankfulness: “There’s always something to be thankful for” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Our curriculum encompasses opportunities for children to show thankfulness and help others, developing skills and motivation to become good future citizens. Our Courageous Advocacy activities highlight how they can use their voices to support those less fortunate than themselves.



Fellowship: “Encourage each other and build each other up” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Our values based curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all pupils, including those with special educational needs or disabilities. Curriculum coverage fosters children’s sense of belonging and pride in their school and community and also to broaden their horizons, ambitions and aspirations.
