Values and Ethos

Here at All Saints we encourage children to understand all Christian values with a particular focus on Compassion, Friendship, Respect and Perseverance. We promote Christian values through the celebrations such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest, and through prayer and reflection. Through reflection and prayer we also work to take each child on their own faith journey.

 

 

Together we believe, achieve and succeed through…

Compassion: Here at All Saints pupils are encouraged to show understanding of others less fortunate than themselves and show kindness and empathy.

Friendship: Here at All Saints pupils are encouraged to be the best friend they can be by showing kindness and thoughtfulness of others.

Respect: Here at All Saints 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 others.

Perseverance: Here at All Saints 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.

 

We aim to inspire children through creativity and the arts, invigorate them through sport, educate them on a healthy lifestyle and provide them with opportunities to develop spiritually, socially and culturally. It is our mission to equip children with the tools they need to realise their full potential. To achieve this we will work in partnership with parents, the church and the community, within a secure and caring Christian environment.
