Happy Children Loving Learning (Proverbs 8)
Happy children loving learning
To provide quality learning experiences that enable everyone to reach their potential within a stimulating, safe Christian ethos and environment.
At Pocklington CE Infant school we have four special Christian Values - Compassion, Perseverance, Truth and Respect. These were decided upon by the pupils during the 2017-18 school year following a survey of pupils, parents and staff and in consultation with governors. As a Church School the Christian values and ethos thread through everything we do and are central to our policies and practice.
Ephesians 4:32 – Be kind and compassionate to one another
Micah 6:8 – Love mercy, act justly, walk humbly
Psalm 34:13 – Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies
John 14:6 – Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life”
Matthew 22:39 – Love your neighbour as yourself
1 Peter 2:17 – Show proper respect to everyone
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. Matthew 10.29
Matthew 22: 37 – Jesus said “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
Philippians 3: 14 – I press on towards the goal
2 Thessalonians 3:13 – Never tire of doing what is good
Hebrews 12.1 Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us that is before us.
In the summer of 2019 a Governor met with groups of Year 1 and 2 pupils to get an insight into their understanding of RE, Collective Worship and belonging to a church school. Below are some of their responses.
Can you tell me about your school logo? What do the different parts refer too?
It means we belong to this school.
It means that if someone gets lost we can be brought back.
It's a sunshine because it's about enjoying yourself and having fun.
Can you think of Bible story that teaches the school values?
The Old Testament when Mary had Jesus. A man let them borrow a stable and this was respectful.
Jesus helped the disciples get the fish, and that was perseverance.
Can you give an example of how one of your school values was important in something you learnt about in class?
Perseverance is important because it’s about hard working in class.
" Now children, listen to me. If you follow my ways you will be happy too. Listen to my teaching and be wise; don't ignore what I say. Whoever waits at my door and listens for me will be blessed."
