Christian Values

Through extensive consultation, the community of Hawksworth CE Primary School has agreed six core values, underpinned by Christian values. Values are things we believe in that help us to make decisions about how to behave. They are the principles that guide our lives. Our values are rooted in the fact that we are a church school with a Christian foundation.

At Hawksworth CE Primary School our core values are:



 Our values are embedded in the life of the school. Christian values underpin all relationships across the school and our commitment to caring for others and achieving excellence.

At Hawksworth CE Primary School, we look at the values in detail so that we all have the words to describe them to each other and know how to spot them in ourselves and in others. We celebrate when people are showing values through our acts of collective worship, celebration assemblies and class reflection time.

It’s not just children who need to learn about values, adults have to think about them too and sometimes need to remind themselves to slow down and think about what is really important to them. All adults at Hawksworth CE Primary School try to live the values at the same time as the children, that way we fulfil our mission statement of providing the highest quality education, for each and every child, within a happy and respectful Christian community.
