Spring Term 2019
7th January 2019 - 5th April 2019
Spring 1 - Pereverance
As we move into a new year and we look ahead , our Christian Value focus moves to Perseverance. We persevere when times are tricky and ask God to help us do so. The Bible talks of persevering as if in a race: we keep our eyes fixed on the goal and don't give up! We need one another to encourage and help us persevere.
Our Open the Book team visit school each week and focus on different Christian values. They have an action-packed programme planned for the term ahead.
Autumn Term 2
29th October 2018 - 20th December 2018
As we move into the second half term our Christian Value focus moves to Trust. Trust is the very essence of faith; Trust in the God who is Trustworthy. Trust is essential to human life and lies at the heart of all relationships. Trust entails vulnerability, putting yourself in others’ hands. Jesus, after all, entrusted his ongoing work to his disciples and ultimately to us.

Autumn Term 1
3rd September 2018 - 19th October 2018
We start the new school year with Thankfulness as our Christian Value theme. Thankfulness has always been at the centre of the life and worship of God’s people. Under the Law of Moses, there were not only sacrifices for forgiveness, there were ‘thanks offerings’ as well. ‘Songs of thankfulness and praise...’ are at the heart of Christian worship. Thankfulness is directed towards God who gives and sustains life. Seeing the world as God’s creation underpins the way we approach everything in life, seeing it as a gift and not as a right.
What do we do in school in response to thankfulness?
