Gospel Values

Whilst other values may be found within the four Gospels and New Testament, it is the Beatitudes which reveal the goal of human existence, the ultimate end of human acts and as such are the objective ‘values’ given by Christ himself. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Our school rules are rooted in these values.

We are kind and helpful.

Faithfulness and Integrity

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted

We are honest and forgive

Forgiveness and Mercy

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy

We look after property.

Dignity and Compassion

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

 We treat everyone equally

Tolerance and Peace

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God

We work hard.

Purity and Holiness

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God

Each half term, the children at St Giles’ and St George’s develop their understanding of two gospel virtues and strive to apply these to their everyday lives. This will be a rolling program year on year.

Provide an environment in which families can be faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future.

Be learned, taking all opportunities offered in a curriculum which is varied and rooted in Gospel values. To be wise in the ways in which they use their learning for the common good.

Be curious about everything, and active when engaging with each other and the world around them.
