Our School Values

At St John the Divine we reflect on and celebrate a  different value each month.

These values are discussed in class and collective worship, they feature in our daily prayers and in our praise assembly. We read stories which demonstrate the value and learn about people who inspire us to show this quality in our daily lives.

At the beginning of each month, we share our value with the school community through our Values Newsletter. This year our Worship Leaders have taken over the responsibility for producing our Values Newsletter. They have revised the format and introduced a section where children can respond to the value and write a prayer or poem which will be used in collective workship.

British Values

St John the Divine Church of England Primary School serves a diverse, open and accepting community. 
Here at St John's, everyone is committed to the values espoused within the Gospels. As modern British values have evolved from a time when we were historically Christian, our Gospel values and British values are fundamentally the same. 

Through the teaching of our curriculum, we believe in and promote core British values including democracy, respect, tolerance, acceptance, peace, being non-judgmental, humility, justice, the rule of the law, the dignity of each human being and individual liberty, forgiveness, generosity, fairness, discipline and hope.

St John's promotes 'Prevent' to all stakeholders.  Prevent forms part of our culture of safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all of our children.  For more information on the Prevent Duty please click on the link below.
