Primary School

A Christian Ethos

A Christian Ethos

 

Psalms 133;1

 

Bramford is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School. We place Christian values, respect and empathy at the heart of our community, where diversity is valued and celebrated. 

 

Our school vision is 'Living in Unity…Together we are ACE.'

 

The value of unity is central to both our federation working and Bramford's strong Christian ethos as a Church of England school, where children learn about the meaning of unity and community through key bible stories and passages, including our school psalm:

 

'How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity.' 

Psalms 133;1

 

 

Relationships within our whole-school community are built around our core values known as our ACE particles, which are rooted in Christian teaching and the eighteen ‘Values For Life.'

 

Our ACE Particles

Christian Values for Life

Positive Attitude

Hope, Peace and Humility

Achievement

Courage

Responsibility and Respect

Responsibility, Respect, Truth, Justice

Try and Try Again - Perseverance

Perseverance

Independent Learner

Wisdom

Creativity

Creativity

Live, Learn and Laugh

Thankfulness, Forgiveness

Everyone Working Together

Trust, Compassion and Unity

Sharing and Caring

Friendship, generosity, service and community

 

We celebrate our core values throughout daily school life to support us with our learning and relationships with others.

 

Each half term we consider a specific ACE particle, underpinned by key Christian values across the whole school and within our collective worship. We consider what the particle and values mean to us and what importance they have in our life, while also learning about what the Bible teaches us about these values.  We encourage our pupils to look for opportunities to show these values in action. 

 

Our ACE particle for this half term is: Everyone Working Together

Our underpinning Christian values are: Trust, Compassion and Unity

 

Our school has strong links with both the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich and our local church, St Mary's.  Revered Eric Falla, Priest in Charge, visits our school regularly to see the children and staff and to lead collective worship. We also hold collective worship in the church to celebrate key Christian festivals, such as harvest, thus developing our pupils' understanding of being part of a wider worshipping community.
