School Values

As a Church School, our faith is an integral part of everyday life.

We meet every day to share collective worship, whether for church services, assemblies or singing practise, we always take the time to come together and reflect.

Our faith guides our choices as children and adults alike strive to follow the example that Christ has set for us all.

At St. Michael’s we see real value and importance in educating children in the beliefs of all major faiths and each year we put on a big ‘Inter-Faith Week’ where children find out about the other global religions, all culminating in trips to the different places of worship and a big school assembly where we share what we have learnt.

We believe it is important to develop core values by which to live and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness.

We seek to explore the meanings of the core values and their significance through daily acts of Collective Worship. The gifts of courage, trust, hope, forgiveness, compassion and thankfulness are the values we want our children to leave with.  In addition to these we will also explore other values in order to develop of our knowledge and understanding. Whilst these gifts are inclusive of human values, we try to anchor them into the Christian faith by relating them to the Bible through stories and readings.

We attend services at St. Michael’s and All Angels Church at the beginning of every term and to celebrate Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter and our Leavers' service, at the end of the school year. Families are welcome to join us for these occasions.

Our Values 

Our core Christian values have been chosen so that living them in a real way, in the life and work of our school and community, helps everyone to encounter ‘life in all its fullness’.

In collective worship, stories from the big story of the bible, help us to understand why the values are important to us and how they can inspire the way we live our lives.
