‘We strive to improve heart and mind’
Cor et Mentem Colere Nitimur
At Chilton Foliat Primary School we honour our educational heritage, supported by a strong Christian ethos. We strive to provide a diverse education that inspires children to develop a thirst for knowledge. This is delivered in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment promoting self-discipline, motivation and excellence in learning. We encourage strong partnerships and positive relationships amongst pupils, parents, carers and the wider community.
Our Termly Value is Perseverance.
Chilton Foliat Primary School is a ‘values based school’ with a strong commitment to teaching Christian Values as part of our daily environment.
Values education is promoted through a termly focus on a whole school value. Ideas are drawn from the ‘Values for Life’ resource and are supported by other materials.
All staff have a major influence on promoting and developing values of our children and young people. Values are developed in everyday relationships and interactions in school. They are shared through a common approach and language and referred to by all.
Chilton Foliat Primary School is a Voluntary Aided Church School and as such we promote a clear Christian ethos through:-
- All adults lead by example and an agreed moral language, that pupils can understand and use, is explained and shared by all.
- Collective worship and group and class opportunities are used to explore and communicate Christian values linking to the Bible and also to real life examples and stories.
- PSHE is promoted through circle times, used of SEAL resources and opportunities for pupils to talk about and share ideas and feelings.
- Children across the school are given a voice through the School’s Council and through class agreements on Golden Rules.
