At St Margaret Clitherow’s Catholic Primary School, we live by our school motto, ‘Jesus is at the heart of everything we do’. In this way, we believe that to live according to the teachings of Christ naturally leads us to living out and promoting British Values, which we understand to be:
We endeavour to provide a rich curriculum and learning opportunities to enable all pupils to better understand and live according to the values of our nation and, therefore, contribute to our society and the world community as a whole. Moreover, in our caring, Christian community, we seek to nurture the spiritual and moral self in every individual, so that they can fulfil their true potential, valuing themselves and others, in all they do. Through prayer, school rules, worship, work, and play, we build upon our welcoming Christian ethos, promoting a culture of respect and love for people, from all backgrounds.
We do this by:
In this way, through celebration of diversity and promotion of respect for all, we believe our pupils value themselves, others, and the world around them, living out their own Christian vocation, as well as according to the values of principles of our nation.
Each week every class in school votes for the child in their class that they feel is the best fit for the British value of the week. The photos of these children are displayed on our Facebook page with a description of what they won their award for.
