Our Ethos Statement

At Cranham Church of England Primary School we pride ourselves on being a caring family. We aim to uphold Christian values; respecting the beliefs of others, whilst maintaining strong links with the parish church and the local community. We nurture respect, awareness of spirituality and the moral development of each individual.

Core British Values

All schools are required to teach ‘British Values’. We already concentrate on teaching children values and respect and promote ‘British Values' alongside our core teachings

At Cranham CofE Primary School, we aim to: 

  • Teach children to be proud to be British, this includes celebrating both British traditions and the diversity of other traditions in Britain;
  • Ensure children are not being radicalised at an early age. This mean staff are watching out for and checking that children are safe and secure in all environments.
  • Ensure children are safe and healthy. Children are encouraged to explore healthy food and activity. This includes running our own allotment with food grown from this being used in our school dinners produced on site;
  • Encourage children to be the best they can possibly be;
  • Promote democracy – everyone has a voice and is listened to. The class rules that the children decide are a good example of this as is the school, council where children take part in a full election process;
  • Promote the rule of law – teaching children right from wrong;
  • Teach mutual respect and tolerance - ensuring children have the right to say ‘no’ and be respected for their choices; 
  • Include world religions in our planning to teach children about the world in which they live; linking children’s learning so they understand they are part of a much wider world;
  • Deliver circle time that promotes personal social and emotional development.
