As a school we have chosen a set of core Christian Values that we believe will provide an important foundation to ensuring that all our children grow to have happy and fulfilling lives. The Christian Values we have chosen are courage, hope, respect, forgiveness, trust, belief, fairness, care and thankfulness. They were chosen because of the close link they have with the Lord’s Prayer.
Our Father, who art in heaven, We trust in God (and in each other)
Hallowed be thy Name. We believe in God (and in each other)
Thy Kingdom come. God gives us hope for the future
Thy will be done on earth,
As it is in heaven. We believe in fairness and justice
Give us this day our daily bread. We are thankful for what we have
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us. We are always ready to forgive
And lead us not into temptation, We have the courage to take the right path
But deliver us from evil. We care for each other
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever We respect God (and each other)
Our Chrisitan Values are reflected within the school through displays and the beautiful mural that has been painted in our school hall. During a Christian Values Day all the children had the opportunity to begin to explore what these values mean through a series of workshops. We continue to ensure that our Christian Values play an important role within the school. Ways in which we do this are through learning in RE lessons, worship, visits to our local church, links within the curriculum and through our children’s spiritual, social, emotional and moral learning.
