Leckhampton’s Values

As part of the Governing Body’s strategic review, the Staff and Governors felt that it was important to reflect on the core Christian values which would provide guidance and support for our School family in everything we do.

An evening was organised in the School hall for Children, Parents, Staff and Governors to reflect on a range of Christian values and then select those that they would like to see guiding all aspects of life here at Leckhampton. After a great deal of discussion and careful consideration, the core Christian values chosen for our School are Perseverance, Respect, Compassion & Responsibility.

To launch our School values, the children and staff enjoyed a Values Day where they reflected on their meaning and how they can guide us through life at school as well as at home and in the wider community. Below is what we believe the values mean to us here at Leckhampton C of E Primary School.
