Bredgar Church of England Primary School is a caring community underpinned by a strong Christian ethos. It is our aim to help each child realise their full potential, by promoting the highest Christian and educational values in all aspects of school life.
We believe that each child must be valued as a person who has an equal right to our care, time and professional attention as a reflection of God’s love for that child.
Our purpose is to provide a secure and happy learning environment where all members of our school community are valued as individuals and where their achievements are recognised and celebrated.
Our aim is to fully develop and educate the whole child, preparing them for the future
The Christian Values and linked Bible Stories
Our core value is Respect and the whole school community strives to illustrate this is its decisions, actions and words. The whole school’s curriculum is based on the Christian values. Each term, a Christian value is linked to the term’s project. They are:
Diversity – Respect Enterprise – Endurance Going for Goals – Hope
World Faith – Community Cherish – Thankfulness
During the enrichment project, the Christian value is usually Forgiveness
Linked to each of the Christian values are one or two Bible stories to further enhance the children’s understanding.
Respect – Daniel and the Lions & The 10 Commandments;
Endurance – Noah’s Ark & Jesus’ Temptation in the desert;
Hope – The Empty Tomb and Pentecost (The coming of the Holy Spirit);
Community – The Last Supper;
Thankfulness – Jairus’ Daughter and the Widow’s Mite
Forgiveness - Jonah and the Whale & The Lost Sheep
