St Mary's CofE Primary School

British Values

As a Church of England school, we value and celebrate the diverse heritages of everybody at St Mary's. Alongside this, we value and celebrate being part of Britain. Both discretely in the curriculum and threaded throughout life school, we ensure the concepts of democracy, liberty, tolerance and mutual respect are promoted and reflected in our community.  Of course, as a Church school, we take a full and active part in the Christian calendar of celebrations across the year. We also acknowledge the key religious festivals of other faiths represented in Britain today. At St Mary's, British values and Christian values are the foundation blocks upon which all that we do is built:

  • Nurture
  • Aspire
  • Compassion
  • Empower

These values have created our values tree with resilience being the trunk and strength of our faith.
