Our Christian Values
Our Christian Values shine through in all we do at Claypole Church of England Primary School.
TRUST: We care about others showing gentleness, kindness, forgiveness and honesty in all our relationships. Trust is the very essence of faith; we rely of each other to be the best that we can be. We trust God and each other and know we help to keep ourselves and each other safe.
PEACE: We show forgiveness and tolerance towards everyone so we get along together. In moments of reflection we hope for peace for all.
CONTENTMENT: We pray to show our thanks to God and the people around us.
JUSTICE: We believe in fairness. We know everyone in our school is important and has the right to be treated equally.
RESPECT: We respect others from all cultures and religions. We learn about others to allow our respect to grow. We listen and learn from others.
KOINONIA: We believe quality relationships and partnerships are a central element of interdependence: all are needed and valued and each person is important to the whole. In John 17, Jesus prays that all his followers may be 'perfectly one' as he and the Father are one.
ENDURANCE: We know sometimes things can be difficult but we keep on going and with God's help we don't give up.
