Ethos and Values

Ethos and Values
 
Archbishop Runcie CE First School is a Church of England (voluntary aided) school with a strong Christian ethos. Our policies are rooted in Christian teachings and in our day to day life the Christian ethos is threaded through all that we do as the lettering is through a stick of rock. We believe this makes our school distinctive.
 
We believe that each individual is unique, valued and loved by God. We promote Christian values through the curriculum we teach and through our everyday relationships and expectations. As an example, values such as forgiveness and reconciliation form the basis of our Behaviour Policy;  we encourage our children to behave with compassion towards one another and to treat others as they would like to be treated themselves.
 
We promote values such as thankfulness, hope, perseverance and humility as well as other values and try to give our children daily examples of how to live out these values.
