Gospel Values

There are 8 values, based on the Beatitudes in Matthew's Gospel and 4 Virtues. They are explored and practised every day in school, in order for every child and adult to be the best person they can be, following the teachings of Jesus. 

  • Humility - seeing life as a gift

  • Compassion - having empathy

  • Kindness - gentleness

  • Justice - working for a fairer world

  • Forgiveness - reconciling with self and others

  • Integrity - do what you say

  • Peace - committed to peace making and non-violence

  • Courage - standing up for the truth 


The children have demonstrated huge awareness of the Gospel Values and these can be witnessed in all walks of school life. As part of developing their journey in Faith more deeply,  we have begun looking at virtues and how to become a better Christian, intrinsically and extrinsically. 


  • Prudence - forward thinking and developing positive habits (Linked to Green Action Plan)
  • Temperance - showing honesty, compassion and kindness (Linked to school behaviour policy)
  • Fortitude - persevering when things get tough. (Promoting Resilience and supporting others) 
  • Justice - seeking fairness in a good and just way. (Standing up for what is right and promoting pupil voice)


Gospel values are things which we display, virtues are what we develop spiritually.


In addition, we also hold a Monthly Value Assembly on a Thursday where we promote a Value and recognise and appreciate this Value in action with others.
