Our Worship Theme is 'Trust'.

Daniel in the Lion's Den

Trust lies at the heart of all relationships and is central to a cohesive community, living together in harmony. Trust entails vulnerability, putting yourself in others’ hands. Trust in God is central to faith. Jesus entrusted his on-going work to his disciples.

How do we see this value in school?

In our school hymn we sing, ‘We will trust our God for the future.’ Through Jesus’ example, we trust our pupils to take responsibility for leading, behaving and learning. We invite pupils to undertake leadership roles in school, placing trust in pupils to carry out roles with an age appropriate level of responsibility. When children have difficulties they trust adults to help them and support them. Our Behaviour Policy is based on children learning to self-regulate their behaviour; we talk about children making choices rather than school rules. In the children’s learning we trust pupils to be independent, to take responsibility for their own learning. By trusting our children and encouraging children to trust adults, we are teaching them to trust others to build a cohesive community.

You might like to help us develop our value by talking to your children about trust and what it means to them, people we trust and why and the importance of trusting in God. We will be exploring trust through Bible stories such as Daniel in the Lion's Den, Jonah and David and Goliath. You may also like to read these stories at home.

‘I thank Christ Jesus our Lord because he trusted me and gave me this work of serving him. He gives me strength.’ (Timothy 1:1-12)

‘But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
