'Let your light shine' (Matthew 5:16)

Christian Values

Love is our main core value that underpins all the other values and everything we do at Thurnham Glasson Church of England Primary School.


'Let all that you do be done in love.' 1 Corinthians 16:14



Love is the core Christian value that underpins all that we do at school.  We are encouraged to love ourselves, others, God and his world.  The Bible tells us that God is love and that those who live in love, live in God and God lives in them. (John 4:16)

The Easter story shows us the ultimate sacrifice of love: " for God so loved the world that he gave his only son." (John 3:16)  Jesus showed selfless love when he laid down his life for everyone.

To carry the value of love in our hearts is to understand that: "Love is kind, love is eternal and love never gives up.  It always trusts, always hopes and always continues strong. (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8)

At our school, we show love and care towards one another, nurturing each other and supporting one another in love.  We put others before ourselves without expectation of reward.


Each half term we focus on a particular Christian Value and have a two-year rolling programme. The children take part in activities and listen to stories based around the value in Collective Worship time. The list at the bottom of the page outlines the values that will be covered this school year.

At the beginning of each half term your child will be sent home with an activity sheet based around the current value. The activity sheets include stories and puzzles you can share as a family. 

In Thurnham Glasson Church of England Primary School we are very proud of our children.  We recognise their hard work and their exemplary behaviour.  

Once a week we select a pupil to be awarded the VIP –Values Inspired Person.

This goes to a child who presents as a good role model by demonstrating our school values within their thoughts and deeds.

We also select a “Leading Light” which is given to a child who has demonstrated a good attitude, excellent effort and perseverance towards their learning or produced an excellent piece of work.
