Respect, Empower, Grow

Christian Values

Children are at the heart of all we do and deserve our very best. We recognise the importance of celebrating our uniqueness and the need to work collaboratively in the diverse cultural world that we live in. It is our hope that all children will be respectful, caring and tolerant towards others, our world and themselves. We seek to empower and equip children to believe that they can achieve anything and have hopes and aspirations for the future. It is our aim to be inspirational role models and that our children develop a love of learning and flourish in all that they do.

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

(Romans 12:10)

‘A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’

(John 13:34-35)

God created everyone and formed us in his own image. We are all special and unique. We need to respect each other, respect the world we live in and respect ourselves. It is important that we treat others the same way that we would like to be treated. We each form a thread of the rich tapestry of life and need to value the differences that create the bigger picture.

‘You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.’

(1 John 4:4)

‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’

(Phillippians 4:13)

We strongly believe that our children are capable of all things and we aim to empower them to be the best that they can be and to reach their full potential. We seek to inspire a love of learning and act as role models who shine the light of Christ. Jesus empowered his disciples through the way he lived and the love and respect he showed to everyone. God can empower each and every one of us to become more like Jesus.

‘Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop – a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.’

(Matthew 13:8)

Our aim is to ensure that each child can grow and flourish during their time at Normanton All Saints. Children are at the heart of all we do and we celebrate their individual gifts and talents. We will support our children to build firm foundations which are rooted in Christ. As a school, we hope to nurture the potential of every member in our school family.
