Why do we develop this understanding? (Our intent)
Our intent is to educate and develop all children to reach their full potential in a Christian like way. As educators, our role is to coach, teach and instruct everyone in the way of wisdom and lead them in the right direction so they come to school to learn, grow, achieve and flourish.
Our core Christian values permeate our school through our behaviours and are threaded through our bespoke curriculum. We strongly believe our Christian values are important to everyone whatever their beliefs or faith.
How do we cover this? (Our implementation)
We teach 9 values focusing on three per term:
Love, Respect and Peace
'Love is patient and kind' 1 Corinthians 13:4
Wisdom, Responsibility and Honesty
'I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.' Proverbs 4:11
Forgiveness, Resilience and Perseverance
'Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgive each other, just as in Christ God forgave you' Ephesians 4:32
Our values were chosen by our school community identifying which were most relevant to our school. We share these on the school newsletter to remind our community of our key focus and to encourage good values reach the homes of many.
What is the difference that this makes? (Our impact)
We believe that our values encourage children and families to make good choices, develop good citizenship, build positive relationships and bring our diverse community together. This enables us to work together in a Christian like way to learn, grow, achieve and flourish in making our community a great place to be.
