At Rushbury CE Primary School we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith or religion or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life.
At Rushbury CE Primary school, we enable the children to reach their God given potential. We broaden their horizons, extend their interests, nurture their talents and lift aspirations so that they can reach their God given potential. Alongside this, we give them a sense of being part of something bigger than themselves, the world and the many opportunities within it.
The school operates an approach of ‘Christian Value of the Month’. 15 Christian values have been identified and are represented in an interactive ‘fish and boat’ display in the school hall. The monthly focus is explored in a variety of different ways but particularly through whole school worship and class/year worship.
Please follow the link below to the National Society and a speech by the Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dr Rowan Williams (Archbishop of Canterbury 2002 to 2012), that we feel encapsulates our school’s Christian vision, values and ethos.
Rushbury school’s ethos promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs; and encourage children to respect other people, with particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.
