Ethos and Values

St John’s is a place where we can grow as life-long learners, understand the value of trusting friendships, show thankfulness and compassion to others, make mistakes knowing we will be forgiven and find peace in the knowledge that we are all treasured and loved as precious children of God.

At St John’s C of E Infant School the staff and governors have a responsibility for promoting positive values to help children develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally.  As a church school the values at St John’s are underpinned by our Christian values which permeate all areas of school life.  Our overarching aim within our Mission Statement is, ‘An outstanding education within a caring Christian environment’

We recently consulted with the whole school community (pupils, parents, staff and governors) to find out which values we feel are most important to St John’s with particular reference to Collective Worship.  Although we will obviously be promoting all the positive values as a matter of course, the six top values identified by the school community were:

  • Thankfulness
  • Peace
  • Love and Compassion
  • Forgiveness
  • Trust
  • Friendship

We have used the above values as a focus for our annual collective worship planning.
