Within our school, we have a set of values that can be drawn upon that link with the stories and lessons learned from the bible. These values are used throughout our day to guide and develop our children and link to our worship. Through our whole school vision of, "One Family, Aiming High, Learning Together with God" and our school parable of the Lost Sheep we have identified key values for our school community.
When visiting St. Peter's, you will see a beautiful painting of St. Peter in our foyer. Please take time to view this painting as around the image are some of the values that we follow at St. Peter's. Not only this, when you look closely at the painting, you will notice subtle but significant objects of meaning.
Below are our Christian values that are around the painting of St. Peter:
Koinonia, thankfulness, truthfulness, compassion, service, hope, forgiveness, trust, wisdom, justice, peace and love.
During our worship, we do not focus on all these values but we select 6 each academic year. However, these values are referenced often and the children can demonstrate them in class. Our children and adults live our school values each day and this is something we are very proud of.
To complement the values around our painting of St Peter, we have identified the following four values. These values were decided upon by all members of our schooling community. All stakeholders feel that these values link closely to the bible and the teachings of Jesus.
These values are:
perseverance, respect, enthusiasm and spirituality
Worship and Values
This year we have chosen six new values to explore within 'In class Worship' from a Christian perspective. We will also look at these values alongside our British Values during P.S.H.E. We will explore how other religions and societies interpret these values and how they shape us as British citizens.
The values for this academic year are:
Autumn 1: love
Autumn 2: community
Spring 1: hope (festival of light)
Spring 2: courage
Summer 1: koinonia
Summer 2: Service
