As a Church of England School, our Christian Values underpin all that we do. Each half term we focus on a particular value. We then display this value in all of our classrooms using images and quotes, from the Bible and elsewhere, to help the children fully understand what they mean and how they link to their own lives. We have a launch collective worship session for each value to bring it into sharp focus for the half term. These are often led by visitors from St Matthews Church in Eye.
Our values are the foundations of our behaviour policy, and we use them to talk to the children about their actions, to help them understand consequences. This then helps them to make changes and choices to ensure they are following our values within school and in their own lives at home.

“For as in one body we have many members and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”
First Thessalonians 5:16-18
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances.”
