Our Christian Values

At St Anne’s CE Primary School, we encourage pupils to understand and promote our school Christian values. We promote Christian values through celebrations such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest, as well as collective worship, prayer and reflection. Our Christian Values help the children to develop as they continue through school and their faith journey.

Building better futures together through…

Compassion

Children at St Anne’s are taught to show kindness and a thoughtful attitude towards others. We are sympathetic in understanding the needs of others in school, the wider community and internationally. 

Thankfulness

Pupils are encouraged to self-reflect for what they are thankful for and to write their own prayers of thanks for whole school worship. Our harvest celebration places great focus on being thankful 

Courage

At St Anne's, we recognise that it can take great courage to do something new or challenging. Sometimes just small steps are needed, but they can take us to new and exciting places!

 

Justice

Pupils are encouraged to promote British and Co-operative Values and attitudes of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, tolerance of others and justice within the school and wider communities.

 

Friendship

Here at St Anne’s pupils are encouraged to be the best friend they can be, to their peers and children around school, putting each of our Christian values into action.

Respect

The children are encouraged to go on a path of self-discovery. Children learn how to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development, as well as how to treat and respect other humans, animals and property.

Generosity

A good way to test how generous we are being to others is to think about whether we are being as good to others as we are being to ourselves. At St Anne's we reflect on Jesus' teachings to "Love your neighbour as yourself," and we have a great focus on generosity during the harvest.

Trust

Pupils are encouraged to trust one another and have a firm belief in the school and its systems, resulting in pupils who are positive and confident in their learning.

Perseverance

We work together to overcome any obstacles, however challenging, to achieve our goals. We try and try again, building resilience which helps us deal with any disappointments on our journey to success.

Forgiveness

St Anne’s pupils are encouraged to forgive others and reflect on others actions with mercy and grace. Forgiveness is one of the many values encouraged through the schools’ behaviour policy. Our Easter production performed by LKS2 places great focus on forgiveness.

Service

Our words of wisdom for the value 'service' are

"Serve one another in love." Galatians 5:13

We all have talents that we can use to serve others or brighten up their lives. We are always looking to unveil hidden talents here at St Anne's.

 

Truthfulness

St Anne’s pupils are encouraged to tell the truth. Truthfulness is one of the many values encouraged through the schools’ behaviour policy.
