Our Church School
With Faith, Hope and Love We Can Achieve Greater Things.”
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Three things will last forever- faith, hope and love- and the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New Living Translation

Our Christian Values: (Guiding our Thinking and Behaviour)
As a school we believe that “with faith, hope and love we can achieve greater things.” This statement is at the heart of our school and is underpinned by the words of Jesus in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7: “Three things will last forever- faith, hope and love- and the greatest of these is love.”
The core value of Love is woven through all of our Christian values.
Faith: “Is being sure of what we hope for. It is being certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
Hope: “For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Love: “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.” 1 Corinthians 13
Respect: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
Forgiveness: “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
Compassion: “Finally, all of you, live in harmony, with one another; b sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.” 1 Peter 3:8
Thankfulness: “See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18
These values give our children the ability to:
- Live in and value a diverse society.
- Realise that there are no limits to your potential.
- Have the confidence to make informed choices and to think for yourself.
- Be aware of your own gifts and using them wisely.
- Play a part in making the world a better place.
- Recognise and celebrate the good in everybody and everything.
