St Bartholomew’s C of E Primary School is a church school which bases its ethos and rules on Christian values.

There is now an explicit expectation from the government and Ofsted that schools; ‘actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.’ (School Inspection Handbook September 2014).

At St Bartholomew’s, these elements form an integral part of our aims, ethos and values and are systematically developed in many ways through our school’s curriculum, organisation and routines.

The principles that we live by at St Bart's are:

  • Believe
  • Achieve
  • Respect
  • Together
  • Succeed
