Aldbury Church of England Primary School, established upon Christian foundations, and living out the Christian faith, is committed to providing every pupil with an excellent education. We are a fully inclusive school and welcome everyone, irrespective of religious background.
Our aim is to uphold our Christian Values in all that we do.
Our approach to collective worship is based upon our Christian Values:
At Aldbury, we promote a set of Christian Values which we believe will support all of the children we teach to develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will enable them to contribute fully to modern life.
Our teaching of values work hand in hand with our teaching of the our British Values which form a basis for collective worship, assemblies and PSHCE sessions.
Our Values meet the requirements of the British Values highlighted in the Ofsted inspection framework.
the rule of law
tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
The value of the half term will be displayed in the hall and classrooms for reference in collective worship and assemblies.
Our values are covered on a two year rolling programme'
The Daily acts of collective worship are planned to give everyone a variety of experiences to develop spirituality through reflections as well an understanding of Christianity and aspects of other faiths and cultures. They enable us to reflect on and respond to things which we as a school community believe are important in preparing children to be responsible citizens now and in the future. The experiences include involving children in sharing relevant stories and current events (Biblical, moral;, multi-cultural, multi-faith or topical); Images, Drama Poetry, Music, Audio Visual, Prayer and Singing.

Proverbs 19: 17 Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.
'A true friend is like a four - leaf clover; hard to find and lucky to have' Irish Proverb
Nearing the time when Jesus was going to suffer, be crucified, and die on the cross, He told His disciples that their relationship had changed. The Lord said, “No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). Friends share their lives with friends, just as Jesus shared what the Father has shared with Him.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Our Christian Value the second half of the Summer Term is Truthfulness
Truthfulness: “Tell the truth to each other.” Zechariah 8 verse 16.
Telling the whole story; living without lies; making the right choices; searching for the truth; having the courage to be honest; seeing the truth – Trinity.
