The school strives to achieve the highest level of academic, social and spiritual development in a safe, caring and inclusive environment. We encourage respect and tolerance for each other, supported by our Christian Vision and values.
The core values at Tutshill C of E Primary School are: creativity, compassion, respect, responsibility, courage, perseverance, forgiveness and creativity. These core values underpin all that we do at Tutshill and are at the heart of decision-making and strategic direction.
“The vision of the school is expressed deeply through actions that change lives. This is fully entwined with Christian values and learning behaviours. The sacrificial impact of how the vision is lived out enriches understanding of what it truly means to ‘love one another’.”

Values are embedded in many ways throughout school life. In Key Stage One, the children have ‘valumals’ to hook the values and behaviours to. The ‘valumals’ are also an opportunity for children to explore and explain our values in action.
“They enjoy explaining how they tackle their work like a lion, tortoise or an ant, which they link to the school’s values of courage, perseverance and hard work.”
The core Christian values support all areas of the curriculum and are closely linked to our learning behaviours. Staff have met regularly to discuss the way in which the Christian Values are linked closely to the learning behaviours the children show. To embed these values and behaviours a teaching and learning approach provides children with the vocabulary and examples to recognise this in their own learning and that of others. This is recognised through modelled language and stickers which highlight the value and behaviour shown.
