Christian Values

At St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School, we believe it is important to develop core values by which to live, and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness, so that our children flourish as a child of God.

Our Christian Values, chosen by pupils and staff, are the gifts of:

Respect

‘Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves’

Romans 12:10

 

Compassion

‘For the Lord is compassionate and merciful’

Ecclesiasticus 2:11

 

Trust

‘Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged. For Lord your God will be with you wherever you go’

Joshua 1:9

 

Tolerance

'Judge not, that you be not judged’

Matthew 7:1

 

Perseverance

‘Let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us’

Hebrew 12:1

 

Friendship

‘Faithful friends are beyond price; no amount can balance their worth’

Ecclesiasticus 6:15

These values are embedded across the curriculum and help give our school its distinctive Christian character.
