B – Brave: Be brave to try new things and take on challenges.

A – Active: Stay active and healthy.

D – Determined: Persevere and practice to learn – "I can't do it, yet".

G – Growth Mindset: Seek growth and positive solutions.

E – Enjoyment: Nurture your happiness and bring joy to others.

R – Resilience: The ability to adapt and be great problem-solvers.

Where every child is a star!

 

As a Church of England School we carry our Christian values through all that we do. Our STAR ethos "Where every child is a star" comes from Philippians 2 v15 as "children of God... you shine like stars".

 

These values are also remembered through the word STAR:

 

S – Service to God, each other and ourselves.

T – Truth is always the best way.

A – Agape is the highest form of love – selfless and kind.

R – Respect for ourselves, others and the environment.

We say our school promise at the close of each day to remember these values.
