Christian Values

Christian Values for 2023- 2024


As a Church school, our vision and Christian Values run through every aspect of our curriculum and ethos..

The Christian Values that our school community have chosen, are  respect, trust, compassion and forgiveness.
Each class has taken one of these Christian Values and looked for examples within school and the wider world.


At Church Walk, we believe that respect is fundamental to relationships and the world. Showing respect for ourselves and others, helps us to appreciate that everone is unique and has their own qualities and opinions which should be valued. The nature of God as revealed in the Bible, asks Christians to show respect for Creation and humanity
We encourage children to value and respect each other,  their belongings and those of others.  Our work on global awareness nurtures a respect for the worl in which we live and an understanding that we are all connected.
Governors show respect through the policies and procedures that they put in place and the monitoring of wellbeing of all staff and children.


Trust is at the foundation of all relationships including the relationship with God.
We use examples of why trust is so important and what can happen to relationships when trust is broken. 
Children in school know that they can trust adults to keep them safe and that they will be listened to.

Christians believe that they should show compassion in their words and deeds, just as Jesus did in the Bible.
At Church Walk, we encourage everyone to show kindness and respect to one another. 
We have links with various local charities and foodbanks and support their work through fundraising and being advocates for their work.
We offer support to new members of our school; Year 5 are Buddies for Reception children and help them with reading and when they are in the playground.
Staff and governors show compassion through supporting families when they  need help.

Christians believe that forgiveness is the way to repair damaged relationships. Although everyone makes mistakes, it is important for us to learn from them and realise the importance of saying sorry. Staff try to encourage children to understand  that if they are sorry for their actions, they can be forgiven. They can make amends and move on in their friendhips. 

 In Collective Worship, we focus upon a different Christian Value every half term.

The Christian Values that we are exploring in Collective Worship are

  • Autumn 1 - Generosity
  • Autumn 2 - Forgiveness
  • Spring 1 - Creativity
  • Spring 2 - Service
  • Summer 1 - Humility
  • Summer 2 - Thankfulness




‘Teach children how they should live and they will remember it all of their lives.’ Proverbs 22:6

  • Stimulating active learning experiences,that develop children's awareness of themselves as learners.
  • Valuing every child irrespectve of gender, disability,age, race or culture and ensure that they have an active voice in school and know that their opinions matter.
  • Supporting children in succeeding in their learning and finding opportunities to celebrate their success.
  • Developing skills of independence, co-operation and self- motivation.
  • Contributing to the wider community, both locally and globally.
