Christian Values

Our school is underpinned by 6 core values

‘Love each other as I have loved you.’ (John 15:12)


‘Serve one another in love’ (Galatians 5.13)


‘Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven’ (Luke 6:37)


‘And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.’ (Micah 6:9)


‘Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.’ (Chronicles 16:34)


At St Bartholomew’s we are a Church of England Primary School and we believe that, with our established and promotion of leadership at all levels, all adults and children will flourish. All leaders ensure that the impact of the vision across the curriculum can be seen and lived out. We use the term ‘The St Bart’s’ way’…where only the best will do’ we ensure that the vision is the cornerstone and the vision of the school drives everything forward. The vision enables us to make decisions for the children at our school. We ensure that we are passionate about the children, families and staff of St Bartholomew’s. We also believe that we are called to serve the community in which we teach.


At St Bartholomew’s we aim to develop and support the all-round growth of the individual child in a calm and caring atmosphere.

Children are expected to reach their full potential in the basic skills in order to enjoy the opportunities and challenges presented to them.

Through hard work and encouragement, our children will achieve and grow confidently as social individuals.

We expect children to demonstrate a caring attitude to each other and their environment, and we value the special contribution of each child so that children will learn to accept and value the views of others.

We intend our phase of education to play its part in preparing children for their adult life as fully participating members of society who can think rationally and plan for themselves a quality future.
