Our Christian Values

Our school vision is

 “Preparing for a positive future, achieved through faith.”

‘Let your light shine’ Matthew 5.16

As a church school, we take the teachings of the Bible and the life of Jesus as our foundation and the inspiration for our school vision and chosen values.

During the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus made it clear that we are the light of the world. We are called to shine. But the light we share is not our own.”

Our school vision and values act as a guide to enable all pupils to become effective learners and good citizens; they act a moral compass to guide them both now and in the future.

Each Christian value historically refers to values derived from the teachings of Jesus Christ. These values highlight the distinctive nature of a Church of England school, the values support the Christian vision of education, one that is generous and that seeks to allow the riches of Christian life to overflow to those of other faiths or no faith. Our school vision and values encourage tolerance, understanding and acknowledgement of all faiths, cultures and communities.

Spiritual development at St. Barnabas CE Primary School enables our whole school community to flourish, as we become aware of God, one another, the world around us and ourselves.

We also teach, nurture and encourage a number of other Christian and Fundamental British Values in the following ways:

Daily Collective Worship: The school has an organised programme of Collective Worship, which concentrates on a different Value each term

Class Values: Each of the classes at St.Barnabas School have their own Christian Value, which form the branches of our school badge.

Fundamental British Values: Where appropriate, we try to teach Fundamental British values alongside Christian Values

Religious Education: As a Church of England School, we view Religious Education as a core subject. Our Christian Values are taught within RE lessons and school termly value days.
