Our Values

At Christ Church C of E Primary School, our school family, including children, parents, staff and governors, have reflected upon and selected five core values to live and work by. Our core values have been chosen to enhance and bring meaning to our vision and our motto, ALWAYS BE KIND, and to help ensure that all members of our school family flourish and develop on their own personal spiritual journey.


Our core Christian values have been chosen to reflect the views and beliefs of our whole school family and are: RESPECT, FRIENDSHIP, PERSEVERANCE, COMPASSION & CREATIVITY.


As a welcoming and inclusive Church of England school, we believe that everyone is loved by God and we strive to ensure that our vision and values are lived so that every member of our school family can develop and grow to be the best that they can be in all aspects of their lives. Underpinning each of our core values is the fundamental belief that kindness and forgiveness are at the heart of an individual’s spiritual development and our school’s Christian vision and practice.
