In God’s Eyes, Everyone is Special
“We aim to create a community that enables every child to be and do the best they can.
We will actively promote the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness, fostering attitudes of tolerance and respect which ensures every member of the school community feels important and valued.
In school we celebrate and promote our Christian Foundations
Our Christian Foundations are:
Trust, Friendship, Compassion, Forgiveness, Justice
Trust – The parable of the sower
Friendship – The parable of the persistent Friend at Night
Compassion – The parable of the Good Samaritan
Forgiveness – The parable of the Prodigal son
Collective Worship is a time where the school community, from a range of backgrounds, beliefs and ages, meets together. Worship in the school is based on promoting the Christian Foundations which permeate the ethos of the school. However children and adults from a range of beliefs and none are welcome to take this opportunity to reflect, sing, listen and celebrate as a school community. As such, the contributions of staff, pupils, church clergy, parents, carers and other visitors are valued highly.
Worship is led by children, staff, governors and representatives of the clergy. At the beginning of a week the theme is introduced. Our themes for Collective Worship are taken from Collective Worship planning materials for Rochester and Canterbury Dioceses; these are provided on a 3 year rolling programme.
