Every week children who have lived out the Gospel Values are chosen by their teachers and then invited to a special tea afternoon where we enjoy tea and cakes and chat about life in school .
Our Gospel Values are taken from the Beatitudes and are promoted as central to our School ethos in conjunction with British values and Personal Development virtues.
Whilst not definitive, the Gospel values based on the Beatitudes which underpin our approach include:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven”
Values: Faithfulness & Integrity
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted”
Values: Dignity & Compassion
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth”
Values: Humility & Gentleness
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied”
Values: Truth & Justice
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy”
Values: Forgiveness & Mercy
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God”
Values: Purity & Holiness
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God”
Values: Tolerance & Peace
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of slander against you because of me. Be glad and rejoice for your reward is great in heaven; they persecuted the prophets before you in the very same way”
Values: Service & Sacrifice
Rooted in the teaching of Christ, these Gospel Values are actively promoted through each lesson across the curriculum and within our pastoral system at all levels.
