Church school values
Our church school values underpin everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment where children are able to flourish, be the best they can be and inspire each other.
Our worship leaders chose our 4 main values, which are then supported by other values.
The children know that perseverance means to keep trying when the going gets tough. The children are encouraged to have self belief in order to keep going. In worship children also have opportunities to reflect on God's persevering love.
Keeping going against all odds (Matthew 2.13-15)
At Eastoft C of E Primary School, we think about what Jesus would do to show compassion in our communities.
We try to support national and local initiatives where we can, including the local food bank, Children in Need, and Save the Children.
We are twinned with a school in Tanzania.
Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Colossians 3 v12
There is more happiness in giving than receiving. Acts 20: v 35
Words relating to ‘servant’ and ‘service’ are central in Christian theology. Serving God means serving others. We encourage children to demonstrate the value of service by:
Thinking of others before themselves.
Hold doors open for other people.
Help others in the classroom.
Think about how we can serve the world and the people who live in it.
'Do to others as you would have them do to you.' (Matthew 7: 12)
Compassion home learning
This half term our school value is Compassion; we have done some great work on this in worship time.
Please use the document to discuss and explore the value at home.
If you do any work on it, then I would love to see it on dojo.
Thanks Mrs Turnbull
