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’
Our values were created by 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 promote all the values as a matter of course, the six top values identified by the school community were:
Thankfulness Peace Love and Compassion Forgiveness Trust Friendship
Our Year 2 Values Leaders promote these values throughout the year and end their year by choosing someone to hand on the role to, expressing why they feel that person demonstrates the value.
Our worship is based upon a different focus value each half-term.
Our long term Worship-Plan can be viewed here
The rules we use to help us live out these values and let our light shine are our Rainbow Rules. For each colour of the rainbow on our school logo we have a rule which, if we follow them all, will let our light shine.
