Our Faith and Values
'Living and learning together, celebrating life in all its fullness.' John 10:10
Working together for each child to realise their God-given potential to flourish.
Nurturing our children to develop wisdom, skills and knowledge, aspiring to their full potential, growing in courage, confidence and creativity - thriving within a secure and caring community. An inclusive school that serves its local community, working in partnership with parents and our local churches – living out our Christian values and showing care and respect to everyone and to our environment.
Our Faith and Values
Our aim is for all of us to be the best that we can possibly be! For children, this means that the adults in the school will strive to support every individual to attain the very best in terms of educational, personal, spiritual and social development. We want children to enjoy school, the feel inspired to learn, to feel safe and to take a full part in the life of the school community. We prepare children for the next stage of their learning and life by teaching our children Christian values.
These values are reviewed regularly and parents as well as children have an opportunity to help in deciding which values are the most important in our school. Christian values underpin our school ethos. We promote each value in turn; this provides a focus and opportunity to go deeper into learning about each value. We celebrate learning in all areas and children collect golden pebbles in a jar throughout the school year when they independently demonstrate our values in their thoughts and actions. When the jar is full a whole school reward is selected by the children. Our values are:
Truthfulness and Trust
Respect and Responsibility
We explicitly teach Christian Values at Spratton CE Primary and also make links to Faith and Values in the context of Modern Britain in order to prepare our children for everyday life in our country. Please refer to our "British Values Statement" for more details about how we teach and develop these values.
We promote British Values within the context of the Church of England’s aspiration that pupils in its schools learn to live well together with others as preparation for life in the diverse society that constitutes modern Britain.
