Our Gospel Value Journals
At St Gregory's, each of our classes has a Gospel Virtues and Values Journal where they record their spiritual encounters, and respond activities as part of weekly Collective Worship. We are extremely proud of the journals, and are always showing our visitors the deep and spiritual reflections created by the children within them.
Fundamental British Values
How do we promote British Values at St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary?
The DfE have stated the need "to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs."
The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values were reiterated in 2014. At St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary these values are reinforced regularly. Please see the document below for further information on how this is done.
