Congratulations to Sam Prince, this terms recipient of the Christian Values award. He has shown us the value and importance of 'Kindness'.

This Autumn Term, our school Christian Value is 'Friendship'
Our Christian Values
At the heart of our school's ethos, lie our Christian Values. These are fundamental in your childs journey through our school. Each term, through a special Collective Worship, we take time to think about their importance and how we can aspire towards these values. Through a special Story Bag, we discover more by; listening to songs, hearing Biblical and secular stories, as well exploring what these values look like in our day to day lives. In RE lessons, we take time to explore these values in greater depth and how these are reflected in our school everyday.
‘Songs of thankfulness and praise...’ are at the heart of Christian worship. Thankfulness is directed towards God who gives and sustains life. Seeing the world as God’s creation underpins the way we approach everything in life, seeing it as a gift and not as a right.
A feeling that is stronger than feeling sorry for someone. It has more to do with putting yourself in someone else's shoes and experiencing what they experience. Jesus' healing work was always prompted by compassion for people's suffering.
An important Christian Value and one that children can relate to throuigh their everyday experiences. The Bible tells us that Jesus was a friend to all, regardless of who they are.
Forgiveness is fundamental to the character of God. Throughout the Bible, God is described as slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin. Jesus told his followers that they must forgive and keep on forgiving.
Hope is a value that is grounded in the character of God. It is rooted in the love and faithfulness of God, a firm trust that He can be relied upon. His promises can be trusted.
Kindness in the Bible is often linked with serving and looking out for each other. In Corinthians 13:4 Paul explains that one of the characteristics of love is kindness.
Our Christian Values underpin our behavioural policy and inform our school Golden Rules.

The story of 'Jesus heals the paralysed man'
Every half term, we explore a different Christian Value. Below, you will find examples of the work, activities and how our children live out these values. An important aspect of this is our charity and fundraising events, for which we are incredibly proud of the vast amounts raised for Sports Relief, Children in Need, The Meningitis Trust, Christian Aid and many others.
