Virtues & Values

Spring 2019

In March, the school were asked to vote on our new virtues and values. After a very close vote, they were unveiled in our Celebration Assembly at the end of March. The top 5 are;

  1. Love
  2. Respect
  3. Friendship
  4. Trust
  5. Hope and Aspiration

All our school policies will be based on these values including our behaviour policy. The School Council are currently producing posters that will be posted around school to remind pupils and staff of these values. As a link to our Christian ethos, each virtue also has a bible quote that is linked to it. The bible quotes and virtues are:

LOVE

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”

RESPECT

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

 

FRIENDSHIP

 

“Encourage one another and build one another up…”

 

TRUST

 

A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.”

 

HOPE AND ASPIRATION

 

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
