Our Worship Theme is Perseverance

The Lost Seep

Perseverance is recognition that life is sometimes difficult and it is important not to give up in the face of adversity. Jesus endured rejection, abuse and the cross. Perseverance is only possible where there is hope.

How do we see this in school?

Adults support children to overcome difficulties through encouragement and appropriate questioning, never giving up. Children support each other well. Children are rewarded for achievements and specifically effort to build a ‘growth mindset’ so children understand that we progress as a result of our efforts.

You might like to help us develop our value by talking to your children about perseverance and what it means to them. We will be exploring perseverance through Bible stories such as The Lost Sheep and Jesus in the desert. You may also like to read these stories at home.

‘And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.’ (Romans 5:2-4)
