Our Values- these are seen as learning behaviours to help us 'reach for the stars' in hope and aspiration!
Respect- 'In the Gospel of John, it is shared how Jesus got down and washed the feet of his disciples. He exclaimed that 'slaves are never greater than their masters and messengers are never greater than the ones who sent them' (13:16). The message is given that we should respect all people regardless of station.
Motivation- When Jesus talks to the Rich, Young Man and then addresses his disciples (Matthew 19: 26-27), he shares the importance of motivation and living by the 12 Commandments. He encourages all people to give all that they have stating that 'with God all things are possible'.
Pride-God shows immense Pride in his Creation in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis (1:31), where he 'he looked at all he had made, and he was very pleased.'
Perseverance- Noah showed immense perseverance and faith in building an ark and filling it to God's instruction. God was so pleased with his perseverance and recognised that he was the 'only one in all the world, who does what is right' ( Genesis 7:1)
Cooperation-'So we built the wall. And all the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.' Nehemiah 4:6. Everyone combined forces to rebuild the wall, showing great cooperation and teamwork, working against the odds.
Kindness- Seen in the 'Book of Jonah', where God shows great love and kindness to the people of Nineveh, by forgiving them for their sins and showing mercy.
We believe that our core values (as chosen by the school community) help pupils to develop holistically, nurturing a secure sense of self, respect for self and others and supports the raising of academic standards. We are a Church of England School and at our heart is nurturing children, so that they are able to flourish and thrive through the teachings in the bible, learning from the life of Jesus Christ.
