Values for Life
At Callow End CE Primary School we offer pupils many opportunities to explore and share beliefs, as well as considering the importance of prayer and time for reflection.
We encourage the children to think carefully about the relevance of ideas, beliefs and values to their own lives, to consider the needs of others and their own role within a wider community.
Every opportunity is given to put both Christian and British values into practice. Collective worship also provides pupils with a time to celebrate achievement and the positive behaviour which reflects these values.
Our collective worship is based upon ‘Values for life’ and in particular nine key Christian values which are rooted in the teachings of the Bible. Each half term we concentrate on one value through music, prayers and a variety of stories and plays.
The key values that we identified after consultations with all our stakeholders are:
|'Be strong and courageous... for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.' Joshua 1.9||'Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive others.' Colossians 3.13||'Encourage one another and build each other up.' Thessalonians 5.11|
|'The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.' Psalm 29.11||'I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.' Philippians 4.13||'Do to others as you would have them do to you.' Matthew 7.12|
|'Always be thankful.' Thessalonians 5.11||'My God is my strength in whom I trust.' Psalm 18.2||'Tell the truth to each other.' Zechariah 8.16|
