Life in a Church School

Christian Values

Throughout school we promote the teaching of Christian Values. Whether intentional or explicit children learn values at school from relationships, everyday classroom interactions, from the example set by adults and from more formal attempts to engage in values education.

 

Values are principles or convictions that act as a guide to behaviour.

 

We consider a range of different values that reflect our schools foundation in the Christian faith and particularly the gospel values founded in the reality of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

 

It is the Christian tradition that gives our chosen values content and the story of Jesus that gives our values moral substance.

 

We have carefully selected and agreed a set of nine values as our school values – Friendship, Thankfulness, Peace, Courage, Perseverance, Hope, Forgiveness, Truthfulness and Trust, Respect and Responsibility to be explored throughout the school year.

 

Collective Worship

Our worship is in accordance with the principles and practices of the Church of England. Children take part in daily collective worship. Our collective worship aims to provide the opportunity for children to worship God, to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs. We encourage participation and response through listening to and joining in the worship offered.

 

As a parent, if you wish to withdraw your child from collective worship you have the right to do so under the Education Reform Act 1988. Please discuss this with the Headteacher.

 

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)

Our last SIAS inspection took place in February 2015

 

SIAS highlights:

The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Welford Sibbertoft and Sulby Endowed School as a Church of England school are GOOD.”

 

The school provides an ethos in which all learners feel valued and special. They are encouraged to success in areas where they have special interests and strengths. Relationships across the school are very good and are firmly rooted in Christian values which are lived and practised by the school community.”
