Kentisbeare Primary School Christian Values

At Kentisbeare C of E Primary School we believe it is important to develop core values by which to live and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness. We seek to explore the meanings of the core values and their significance through our collective worship. The gifts of respect,compassion, perseverance, friendship and forgiveness are the values we want our children to leave with. Whilst these gifts are inclusive of human values, we try to anchor them into the Christian faith by relating them to the Bible through stories and readings. 

Over a 2 year rolling programme we embrace 12 Christian Values overall. See table below. We are currently in Year A.

We explore these values in school through lessons and in our Collective Worship.

For each Value there is a home/school worksheet for you to download. This is available on the home page.
