Our Christian Vision
We are driven by our deep rooted Christian commitment to the children’s well-being and education. We want to develop a safe and exciting environment where all God’s children flourish through opportunities and collaboration in a nurturing environment to become lifelong learners.
Although there are many Christian Values we have chosen four which we have placed a strong emphasis on to help create and sustain the Christian ethos of our school. These values are Respect, Truth, Compassion and Friendship. The pupils learn to link these values to the parables of Jesus.
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
We have likened ourselves to this parable, how when the children start school they are small, like a grain of mustard seed, yet under the blanket of a good Christian upbringing, the children grow and flourish into the great achievers that they become.
“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field; which indeed is smaller than all seeds. But when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches.”
