Christian Values

At Bretherton Endowed, our community is based on core Christian values.  These values foster a positive learning environment, helping us make decisions about how we behave, create a stronger sense of community and improve our social and relationship skills.  They are a guide to how we live our lives, influencing our attitudes and actions, encouraging us all to take responsibility for our own learning and behaviour.  Sometimes when we are so busy in life we forget the values that are important.  Here at Bretherton Endowed we focus on one Christian value per half term to help us understand what living that value actually means and to help us to truly love, serve and grow together with Jesus.  The values programme is run on a two year cycle.  There are six values per year with one to be introduced each half term. 

Our Programme provides a structure for children to actively involved in our worships, evaluate and develop them and become leaders of collective worship.

When someone in our school demonstrates that they are living by the Christian values, they have the opportunity to earn a ‘Bretherton value token'.  This token is placed in the relevant ‘Value Vase’ which forms part of the values display in the school entrance.  Once awarded a token the children will have this recorded in their diary.  They can work towards receiving bronze, silver and gold certificates.  

Our school uses a variety of resources as a basis for our Collective Worship. Resources including ‘ Values for Life’, resources provided and inspired by Blackburn Diocese and Imaginor 'Roots and Fruits’ to name a few.  These Values are shared with children on a regular basis, and reinforced through our teaching. Most of these Values can be said to be ‘human values’ and inclusive for people with different or diverse faiths, and also for those with no faith. As a Church of England school, however, we have rooted these Values in the Bible. We have established 8 Values that are particularly important to members of our school family. Our chosen values are listed below. Each page provides a small explanation about the Value, and a linked Bible story that illustrates the Value well and is particularly memorable for the children.
