Ethos

Our distinctive Christian Values are

  • Truthfulness
  • Peace
  • Compassion
  • Gratitude
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Agape Love

These are the Distinctive Christian Values that underpin all that we do at St. Chad’s. As a school we focus particularly on one value each half term throughout the year. One or two of these values sometimes change, year by year, for slightly different ones in order to respond to the needs of our community.

We are proud of the way that these values are practiced and understood at St. Chad’s and we expect all members of our school community to respect and apply these values in and around school.
