Values Statement

‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength [and] you shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Mark 12:30-31)

Loving and valuing everyone is a central element of Christian behaviour and is at the heart of the life of the school. Broxbourne CE Primary is a place where we learn how to love God, one another and ourselves. This is achieved through collective worship, religious education and the application of Christian Values to relationships within and beyond the school.  We strive to nurture among everyone a real sense of purpose of who we are in the world and how special and unique we are in the eyes of God.  We aim to be a Christian family where all are appreciated and respected and we endeavour to inspire children to create a better world through thoughtful respect and tolerance.

Through our Christian Values of respect, awe and wonder, peace, friendship, justice, trust, hope and endurance, we engage children in learning that helps them be respectful towards others and be aware of their feelings, emotions and beliefs.   We also aim to help pupils understand the role of British values in society including, democracy, the rules of law, individual liberty and respect and tolerance of those with different faiths. This is done overtly through our history and our RE topics.   Our curriculum threads SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) across all areas of learning and school life and ensures pupils are aware of the history and values of Britain and prepares children for life in modern Britain.  We develop children’s knowledge, understanding, and awareness of Christianity, as the predominant religion in Great Britain, and of the other principal religions represented in this country.
