Oxenhope CE Primary School

Our Core Christian Values

Our children, staff, governors and parents were consulted on the Christian Values they feel represent our school most. The school community choose the four values Community, Love and Growth.

Each term we focus on one of these values drawing links throughout the year.

Throughout our curriculum and school life, along with our school vision, these three golden strands permeate through everything we do.



Jesus often spoke of unity in our communities and encouraging one another on our journey. He spoke of bearing each other’s burdens in love and helping those in need.

‘Live in harmony with one another.’ Romans 12 v 16


It says in the Bible that God is Love and encompasses all that is loving and good. Jesus showed the ultimate unconditional love when he laid down his life for us on the cross. Therefore, this love should lead to a desire to love other people.

 ‘ Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us.’ Ephesians 5 v 2


Just like a plant, we must endure the difficult times along with the good; but God has sent us his Holy Spirit to help and strengthen us so we can bear fruit and grow in the likeness of Christ.

‘Grown in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.’ 2 Peter 3 v 18
