Through extensive consultation, the community of Bletchingdon Parochial CE Primary School has agreed five core values, underpinned by Christian values. Values are things we believe in that help us to make decisions about how to behave. They are the principles that guide our lives. Our values are rooted in the fact that we are a church school with a Christian foundation.
At Bletchingdon Parochial CE Primary School our core values are:
“Love is patient, love is kind … love never fails. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (Corinthians 13 : 4 – 7)
“Be strong and of good courage.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
“Show proper respect to everyone.” (1 Peter 2:17)
“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)
“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you.” (Romans 15:7)
At Bletchingdon Parochial CE Primary School, we look at the values in detail so that we all have the words to describe them to each other and know how to spot them both within ourselves and others. We celebrate when people are showing values through our acts of collective worship, celebration assemblies and reflection times.
It is not just children who need to learn about values, adults have to think about them too and sometimes need to remind themselves to slow down and think about what is really important to them. All adults at our school try to live the values at the same time as the children: that way we fulfil our mission statement: Learn to Believe Aspire to Achieve.
“Parents value the strong Christian ethos which underpins the school’s values of love, honesty, courage and respect.”
