As a school, we believe that Christian Values help to shape and support our children to fulfil their full potential and empower them to make informed choices, flourish socially and prepare them for becoming a confident, respectful and fulfilled member of society. We believe that our Christian Values highlight how Christ is our role model and that no matter what we go through we will always have friendship, peace and respect.
Peace ~ The Hebrew term for peace, ‘shalom’, has a deep and complex meaning, encompassing much more than simply the absence of hostility or war. Shalom includes ideas of healing and health, wholeness and well-being. It means harmony, stability and security within a community. It refers to relationships based on truth and righteousness, where people flourish because they are nurtured.
‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid'. (John 14:27)
Respect ~ People need to respect each other, respect the world they live in and also respect themselves. It is important that they treat others the same way they would like to be treated.
'Be devoted to one another. Honour one another above yourselves.' (Romans 12:10)
Friendship ~ Trust, feeling comfortable in each other's company, being able to share joys, sorrows, are all features of friendship and these are things of immense value. True friendship enables each person to grow and ensures that the unique individuality of each person is recognised.' (Christian Values for Schools).
'If one falls down, a friend can lift him up.' (Ecclesiastes 4:10)
