Jesus colours our life, our love, our learning.
"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10
At St George’s CE Primary school our vision is that every child uphold the Christian values with them in their daily lives. Our children strive to be confident, kind, thoughtful and selfless. You can see our vision come to life when walking through our school and in our classrooms. Our school motto is ‘Jesus colours our love, our life, our learning’. We strive to live out this vision in everything we do in school to allow children to enjoy the fullness of life and enable them to flourish in the world in which they live.
Our vision is rooted in the Gospel of John and in particular chapter 10‘ I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ Our vision is rooted in the principle of Jesus’ teaching’s that we must use his teaching to allow children to live life to the full and be able to flourish in their life within and beyond school. Our school vision encompasses our 6 Christian values (Compassion, love, truthfulness, thankfulness, forgiveness and hope’)
At St. George's we have a fantastic ethos and worship group that help with planning and taking collective worship; as well as being responsible for delivering their own termly collective worship to the whole school. Our worship leaders apply and are appointed to carry out important tasks and roles within the spiritual life of the school. They bring us together in prayer; they help to plan collective worship assemblies; and support adults and other children in their class collective worship.
We often share and compare our experiences and provide our children with a window to the world. This is done on a weekly basis through 'Picture News'. This is located in the school hall, where a current topic in the news is discussed with a though provoking question that children can respond to on Post-It notes. A lot of the time the children will look at the injustice behind these news stories and think about how they can be advocates for change - often resulting in charity work. As well as this, each week the news story is linked with one of the British Values that is also displayed with the Picture News so the children have a greater understanding of these important values. Please see the school Newsletter for the weekly 'Picture News' updates).
