Christian values underpin everything that we do at Tenbury Primary Academy and are at the heart of all aspects of school life. We have identified twelve core Christian values and each half term one of these values is highlighted and focused upon within our daily acts of worship and in our lessons: Generosity, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect, Thankfulness, Trust, Perseverance, Justice, Service and Truthfulness.
Sitting alongside our Christian values are our Tenbury Treasure values and we are all aiming to be
'Tenbury Treasures'. After lots of discussions and ideas in our classrooms about what Tenbury means to us, the school council decided on a set of values for our school. Each of the letters in 'Treasures' represents one of our values:
T - treating others with kindness
R - respectful
E - enthusiastic learners
A - active and healthy
S - surrounded by happiness
U - united together as a family
R - reaching our goals
E - everyone unique
S - succeed in all that we do
We can earn a badge for each letter and are trying to collect all of the letters during this academic year to become real 'Treasures of Tenbury' and make our school a special place.
Through a combination of approaches, the school ensures that children are able to develop an understanding of the key British Values: Democracy, Law, Respect, Liberty, Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs and an awareness of what it means to be British.
There is a lot of overlap between all of these values and there are lots of opportunities for children to learn and understand about them, and also to practice and live the values within their everyday school and home life.
