Archbishop Courtenay School Values


Through God’s love and encouragement we aspire for all to achieve their potential


As a family, through love for one another and full wise use of God’s gracious gifts to us, we aspire to live to our full potential as God intended.  


The story of The Good Samaritan shares God’s guidance and love for our fellow humankind……

When the Samaritan stopped to help the injured man he showed FELLOWSHIP towards a stranger who was in need   Luke 10:33

We are all part of God’s family by showing equality and fellowship in our school for all, by making everyone feel welcomed and cared for. Through the story of The Good Samaritan, Jesus explained that we are all part of God’s family and that we should all care for one another.

By caring for him and taking him to safety the Samaritan showed COMPASSION  Luke 10:34

We show compassion by the way we treat each other fairly and with kindness, as Jesus instructed his followers when he said,’ Go then and do the same.’  We empower our community to explore and talk to each other; we encourage the value of forgiveness.  The Samaritan did not think about the race or religion of the man, he just saw someone that needed help. 

Jesus said ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself’ teaching us to have  ASPIRATION, to be the best we can be   Luke 10:27

We enable and resource our teachers and learners to excel at developing learning opportunities that will allow us all to strive to achieve our potential.  We look to our teachers to inspire and expand our children’s minds to be creative and independent in their thinking, promoting scholarship and ownership of their own futures.  When Jesus told us to ‘Love our neighbours as we love ourselves’ he was telling us to aspire to live and work collectively within God’s love.


Jesus taught us to love our neighbour as we love ourselves. At Archbishop Courtenay Primary we ensure we all feel part of a family where everyone is valued and encouraged to aspire to achieve their very best by providing-

  • An engaging and accessible curriculum which excites and stimulates a lifelong love of learning, through working together with our teachers and friends in Fellowship. We enhance this through a shared understanding of the world God created, which we experience through our worship.


  • Life is a gift from God, so at ABC we want everyone to reach their full potential regardless of their beliefs or background.  We aim to achieve this by promoting a Compassionate and holistic environment within which our children can thrive.


  • Jesus taught us to be the best we can be within the Family of God. We foster a determined approach to learning that will enable all children to aspire and achieve within a caring Christian community


We celebrate the Christian character of our foundation and believe this character informs all that is done at Archbishop Courtenay through the values of
