Our Values

At  Christ the Sower we have seven values that underpin everything we do in our school. Our values are lived on a daily basis by every member of the school community.

Each value is explicitly taught and celebrated in collective worship and achievement celebrations. Additionally, each year group focuses on one of the values, rooted in the Christian ethos. Over the year, the children are taught how to put that value into practice so that it supports their development and character.

 Every year, we begin the Autumn Term with an opportunity to explore our values which we celebrate in collective worship and our annual Banner Assembly.
