Values at

Christopher Rawlins Church of England

Primary School

‘Love one another as I have loved you’  John 13:34

The values of Compassion, Peace and Service underpin the life of Christopher Rawlins Church of England Primary School.  We base our teachings on Bible stories and Festivals and aim to enable children to see these values in action around them in all areas of life.

We have used materials created by The National Society to support staff.  These can be found in PDF form on our website.  We root our teachings in the core Bible stories listed below and include these in our worship planning and with our community Bible Story sessions.
