Christian Ethos



Our Christian Values run throughout the school; in collective worship, in lessons and in the playground.  Our pupils have an understanding of spiritual awareness, a sense of their own worth and an appreciation of the world around them. Our Christian Values feed into every area of school life and are used by all members of staff. These are based around the teaching of Jesus and are used as a model for our lives for how we should live and treat each other.


Mountnessing C of E Primary School is a has 6 main Christian Values that are at the heart of our school.

These are:

  • Friendship
  • Thankfulness
  • Respect and Reverence 
  • Creativity
  • Responsibility
  • Perseverance


We take ownership of a value each half term and we focus on it as a whole school. This approach means that the children are immersed in each Christian value through worship, assemblies, homework and lessons. Parents are encouraged to learn about each value with their children through the home to school value sheet that is sent home each half term as well as a small piece of family creative homework linked to our focus value. 

We have a 'Worship Committee' in school made up of staff, children, governors and church members. Our Worship committee meets regularly to discuss worship, plan and lead worship and to undertake projects in school. They look after our 'Peaceful Room' which is a room for children and staff to visit when they need a place to go and be quiet, reflective and pray.
