Policy for Christian and British values in CE schools

The promotion of Christian values in a Church of England school must offer a spiritual and moral basis for the development of human wholeness and a sure foundation for personal and social values based on the Ten Commandments, the person and ministry of Jesus Christ, and the history of the Church. The CE school will, therefore, offer a distinctive language for understanding life and interpreting human experience in preparation for consideration of British values.
