Virtues to Live By

Virtues to Live By

Our current Virtue to Live By is: Hope - I trust that God's love has no end and that He is at work in my life and in the world. 

I am hopeful when: I am positive about the future, I don't give up on myself, I have hopes and dreams, I place my life in God's hands and I know God has a plan for me.  

Guiding Principles

To ensure children  are given opportunities to:

Experience a positive and purposeful ethos providing a sense of belonging to their school community.

Grow in their knowledge and understanding of the virtues.

Practise the virtues to further the call to live life to the full.

Appreciate the connection between biblical and practical wisdom and living.

Hear the Christian story and encounter it in practice.

Understand their uniqueness and dignity as made in the image and likeness of God.

Know that our limitations are also opportunities for growth.

To notice, to reflect, to pray and to play

To exercise the cognitive, affective and behavioural components of character: know it in your head, feel it in your heart and show it with your hands.
