The value currently being considered as a whole school, in Collective Worship and in the general life of the school, is resilience.
Our Christian values permeate the life of the school. As we go through the day the children and adults aim to live out these values, deepening their meaning and showing them in many practical ways.
Our focus values form the basis for our daily Collective Worship. Each week we spend time together as a school celebrating those children who have particularly shown these values in their attitude and behaviour at school.
The values have been decided as a school community and reflect what is of importance to Potters Gate. This year the values that we are going to focus on are:
Although these values may be supported and shared by Christians and non-Christians alike, theological backgrounds and biblical references help to explore what is distinctively Christian about each value.
Jesus said: “There is no other commandment greater
than these – you shall love the Lord your God with all
your heart…...you shall love your neighbour as yourself.”
Mark 12 v30, 31
From this statement of Jesus our values arise and they all centre on
honouring God and in turn serving others.
Trust is central to civilised society, to living together in harmony, so it is to be valued and honoured. With wisdom and discernment, we can learn to trust. We can build trust in our society by being reliable ourselves, by not letting people down.
WORSHIP I acknowledge and respect God as we gather daily
for worship. Worship is central in the life of Potters Gate School.
