Our Christian Values
Our Christian Values were chosen in consultation with all members of staff and pupils. They reflect our school's priorities and the highest aspirations for our whole community over the next three years.
Mental and physical health, well-being and resilience
Developing empathy through charity work, community involvement and global citizenship
Growing pupils’ sense of responsibility through school life and social responsibility
Working in partnership with parents to enable all children to reach their potential, celebrate successes and strengthen links
Our values are: hope, peace, compassion, endurance, fellowship and friendship.
Hope - “ Hope generates energy and sustains people through difficult times...It is a hope rooted in the love and faithfulness of God...it is a firm reassurance that God can be relied upon.”
Peace - “Peace includes ideas of healing and health, wholeness and well-being. It means harmony, stability and security within a community...where people flourish because they are nurtured ...Peace cannot come by simply wishing it to be the case. Peace is founded on righteousness and justice.”
Compassion - “The words have their roots in the ideas of ‘suffering with’ someone, putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and experiencing what they experience. This leads to a desire to act, to do something...Compassion requires an act of imagination and humility to share in the lives of others.”
Endurance - “At its root, endurance is recognition that life is sometimes difficult and painful, and that is important not to give up in the face of adversity...Endurance and perseverance are only possible where there is hope and that hope is based on the enduring nature of God’s love and faithfulness.”
Koinonia (fellowship) - “Koinonia means ‘that which is common’ and is often translated as ‘fellowship’ or ‘community’...By combining our strength, it helps work to be done and burdens to be carried...A central element of being a family is interdependence: all are needed and valued and each person is important to the whole.”
Friendship - “Trust, feeling comfortable in each other’s company, being able to share joys and sorrows are all features of friendship and these are things of immense value. True friendship enables each person to grow and ensures that the unique individuality of each person is recognised. All this echoes the value placed by God on the preciousness of each person.”
