We are a values-centred school where all are inspired to learn and achieve in a caring, Christian community.
Children are at the heart of all that we do.
Our Core values have been defined over recent years.
Love at the Priory School means:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 14 v4-8
It means we always put the welfare of our children first and to encourage the school community to be ‘more kind than is necessary.’
Forgiveness at the Priory School means:
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.Ephesians 4 v32
There are consequences for wrong actions and we need to learn from our mistakes, but we also move on from them. Holding grudges only makes life more miserable. Saying sorry is important. Accepting an apology is important. Every day is a fresh start.
Respect at the Priory School means:
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.Matthew 7 v12
We think and act in a way that shows we care for the well-being of others. We think and act in a positive way about ourselves. We take pride in our work, our appearance and our school. We treat people who are different to us with respect.
Aspiration at the Priory School means:
May He give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed. Psalm 20 v4
There is a spark of greatness inside everyone of us. We strive for high standards and have high expectations in all that we do.
