Promoting our Christian Distinctiveness
Our Christian Values are linked to the theme of Lights
Building on firm foundations.
At the start of the each half term we focus on one of our Christian values as well as showing the other's in our daily lives. Through all our values we think about Jesus being the 'Light of the World'.
We will learn about the significance of light within the Bible and it's importance in our everyday lives.
Our LIGHTS shine brightly!
Our Christian values were chosen in discussions with pupils, parents, staff and governors

' You shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart, all your soul, and with all your strength and with all your mind and love your neighbour as yourself.' Luke 10:27
There is a daily act of worship in school which is wholly or mainly of a Christian nature. Our worship is linked to our school Christian Values which are promoted by our pupils, staff and community. Our Christian Values are Love, Inclusion, Guidance, Hope, Trust and Service.
Our daily act of worship lasts for approximately 15-20 minutes. We sing songs, share stories, reflect on our lives and the lives of others and give praise to God. We are supported by St Paul's Church with weekly visits by Rev Leon Sim. Faith speakers come in to school regularly to support us with our worship.
We say Grace together as a class before we eat our lunch and we also say a prayer at the end of our school day.
Parents are able to withdraw their child from our daily act of worship and a meeting with Mrs Earnshaw, our Headteacher, can be arranged to discuss this.
In our school hall we have a prayer table where children can sit and write their own prayers or reflect on the prayers that others have written.Each week we talk about those people around the world who need our prayers.
We teach this version of the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in Heaven
Hallowed be your name
Your Kingdom come
Your will be done,
On Earth as in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
Forever and forever.
This is our school Prayer:
We give you our school.
We give you all the adults who work here,
We give you all the children who learn here.
We pray our school will be a place of great discovery, adventure and creativity.
May it be a place where we love to learn and where we learn to love,
A place where everyone is respected and all are deeply valued.
We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
