In Church of England schools, we uphold our Christian distinctiveness and the Christian values which underpin what we do, whilst promoting British Values of; democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and a mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Our Christian values are those which have given rise to what are now called 'British values'. We are aware that many of these values are shared by people of good faith from many traditions in a diverse British culture. We can be confident in stating our moral and spiritual purpose: that every child matters to God. As we do this we also point towards specific Christian values which underpin our work, and which we wish all our children and families to experience in our schools. Austrey School's core Christian values include: love, hope, respect, forgiveness, citizenship, courage, peace, honesty, humility, patience, tolerance and faith/trust.
