Our Values

What do our values mean for Bramley?

Compassion is all about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, especially when they are having a hard time. It’s about trying to understand how they are feeling and then being pro-active in wanting to help. Jesus showed compassion towards those less fortunate and his works of healing were always prompted by compassion for people’s suffering. We learn about compassion through planned experiences during Collective Worship, a broad, rich curriculum and through books and stories. We also embrace opportunities which present themselves throughout the school day.

“The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger in rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.”  Psalm 145: 8-9


Friendship - At Bramley, we are all friends as we want the very best for each other. True friendship enables people to grow and ensures that the unique individuality of each person is recognised. It can take a long time to learn how to be a great friend, someone who can be trusted and relied upon. To have friends first one needs to be a friend. All this echoes the value placed by God on the preciousness of each person and the values that Jesus displayed through his friendship with his disciples.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7


Respect is the foundation stone of relationships within our school and wider community. Through daily worships, we use bible stories to provide examples of respect and also teach children to make the right choices, recognising how their choices have an impact on others. As a school community we need to be conscious that God has created all people in His image.

Respect is an important core value in the Christian faith because through the creation of the 10 commandments, God encourages us all to “Love thy Neighbour as you love yourself”, respecting all others regardless of our differences, values and beliefs, fostering tolerance between each other.

“Treat others as you would want them to treat you”  Matthew 7:12
