Happy Children Love Learning

Christian Values 

As a Church School the Christian values and ethos thread through everything we do and are central to our policies and practice.  During the 2017-18 school year we chose 4 Christian Values as being key to our mission of 'happy children loving learning' - Compassion, Perseverance, Truth and Respect.  These 4 values were decided upon by the pupils following a survey of pupils, parents and staff and in consultation with governors. 

Compassion

Ephesians 4:32 – Be kind and compassionate to one another

Micah 6:8 – Love mercy, act justly, walk humbly

 

Truth

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”

Respect

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

 

Perseverance

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.
