School Values

Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Values at Norton St. Nicholas CofE (VA) Primary School



In the summer of 2019 pupils, staff, parents and governors undertook a review of the school values and identified several key values that underpin our ethos and are at the core of all we do. Our seven values are:

  • Courage,
  • Forgiveness,
  • Honesty,
  • Love,
  • Respect
  • Thankfulness,
  • Wisdom.


Our values are developed through many aspects of school life such as through worship, PSHE, character education, etc. As well as being recognised as widely agreeable values, these values at Norton St. Nicholas are linked to biblical characters and principles in order to strengthen our Christian ethos. All values are grounded in our Christian character.
