Values for Life
The six Christian values we have chosen for our school are:
Courage, Hope, Respect, Trust, Perseverance, Togetherness
At the very centre of our six core values is the Christian value of Love.
Love 'always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.'
1 Corinthians 13:7
In our collective worship throughout the year, we focus on a different value each term and how we might demonstrate that value in our behaviour around school. We look at what the Bible has to tell us about that value, and use stories from around the world to explore the value in different contexts.
We are very proud that Robin Sharples, from the Diocese of Oxford, recognised our distinctive Christian character during his SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection visit in June 2017:
'Everyone at Great Milton C of E Primary School has worked hard to ensure that the Christian ethos is integral to the life of the school. Governors and members of staff model the school’s values and teachers speak of love being "at the heart of all we do". This modelling is recognised by parents and the ethos is referred to as "family atmosphere with an added dimension".'
