Castle Bromwich Junior School




School Vision

At CBJS we aim to teach the children to do the best they can, so that they learn the most they can, and develop academically, socially and physically to be as happy and as healthy as they can.

School Values

Our values are central to the life of the school and were developed in consultation with everybody in the school community. Respect, honesty, caring, politeness, trust and determination are examples of these values and together they help to give all our children a sense of stability and belonging.

As a school community, we completed a consultation to make these values simpler and easier to remember and now we follow 3 ideas; aspiration -  that at all times we do our very best [ASPIRE], we accept one another [ACCEPT] and we adapt to new situations, to new people and to new challenges [ADAPT]. They are our AAAs.

Our values support and compliment SMSC education and promote fundamental British Values within our school. See our SMSC section for more information.


Fundamental British Values

At CBJS we aim to promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty (freedom), and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. By actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values.


By doing this we will be developing the whole child to ensure that:


  • Children know right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England;
  • Children are able to contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely;
  • Children develop tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions and to respect their own and others religions.
  • Children show respect for democracy including the democratic system and how laws are applied in England.

Here are some examples of art work that we have had produced to promote our school values.

Our school values are displayed around school and in all classrooms in a variety of ways. Children reflect upon them to show when they demonstrated these.

We also ensure that we promote British Values and challenge thinking that may be different to this. In our classrooms, we have the British Values displayed. Each child has reflected upon the British Values and have explained when they have demonstrated these values at school.
