Worship & Values
Truthfulness – Luke 16:10: Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
British Value Link – The Rule of Law
Spiritual – Christ said that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. If Christ is Truth, then it follows that lying is moving away from Christ. Being honest is about following in God's footsteps, for He cannot lie. If the Christian goal is to become more God-like and God-centred then honesty needs to be a focus.
Moral – We believe that the Bible and the teachings of Jesus and his Disciples show us that we are called to speak up for the truth and out against injustice. We therefore equip children with the skills required to be reflective, become informed and be able to make just judgements for themselves based on facts and evidence.
Social – Honesty is central to trust so it has to be valued and honoured. We must trust each other, our peers and our leaders and we teach the children how to be reliable themselves by not letting their friends, parents or teachers down. It is also not an excuse to be purposefully unkind to those around us.
Cultural - As a Church of England school, we believe that showing we are trustworthy and honest is the first step towards living in a truly peaceful community. We learn about the values that have informed our nation's justice system and the way this system functions to maintain law and keep us safe.

We have very close links with our church of St Anne's. We also enjoy Community Worship in school each Thursday morning when we are joined by members of our church, who lead us in "Open the Book".
Worship is at the heart of all we do in school. Each half-term we celebrate Eucharist in school - please check our newsletter for dates.
