Teaching Values

Each term we focus on a different Christian value. By listening to Bible stories, stories of everyday life or learning about famous people or events we talk about what that value means to Christians, ourselves and how it applies to our everyday and school life.

 

Values are taught as the Collective Worship themes over a year.  Other values are explored in subsequent years; each term we focus on a different value which we link to the core value.
