Values Education


St Wilfrid’s Vision and Values Statement
We believe God loves us all and every child who attends St Wilfrid’s School will develop their faith, their abilities and know how to develop in the world ahead as global citizens.
We aim for everything we do to reflect our Christian Vision and our core Christian values are strongly embedded in school life. In addition, drawing together relevant strands such as Fundamental British Values, Values Education, Global Learning and Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) ensures that we are fulfilling our vision that all should live and love fully.
St Wilfrid’s Christian Values 
The all-encompassing Christian Value of Love is central to our mission statement supported by other chosen values which are characteristic of the Christian faith:
Justice, Hope, Trust, Humility, Forgiveness, Thankfulness, Compassion, Friendship, Peace
These Christian values are embedded in our wider programme of Values Education, in which we partner with schools in the Lancaster and Morecambe District Cluster. Our children have the opportunity to work towards a St. Wilfrid’s Values Diploma  which encourages them to participate in a wide range of activities, including those with social impact. We believe that this impacts strongly on pupils’ attainment as well as their personal aspirations, development and understanding of their role as British and global citizens.
Our Value of the Month makes explicit links to our vision and mission statement
