Inspiring care, respect and trust for all, in our Christian community
Our mission statement and core values underpin everything we do. We celebrate children and adults who encapsulate them through awarding hexagons. In our newsletter we quote examples where our children have exemplified our core values.
Peter 5:7: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
Caring for others makes you a more patient and understanding person.
It also helps you to deepen your connection with that person.
Caring for other people makes a positive impact on the world around us.
Courageous advocacy relies on us caring for those around us.
Peter 2:17 “Show proper respect to everyone”
Receiving respect from others is important because it helps us to feel safe and to express ourselves. Being respected by important people in our lives growing up teaches us how to be respectful toward others. Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they’re different from you or you don’t agree with them. Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing.
John 14:1 “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me.”
We achieve more if we trust. If we can trust wholeheartedly that someone is there to support us in the toughest of times, it makes previously insurmountable challenges seem like ant hills. Suddenly, what was daunting is now something that is achievable.
To support our pupil’s understanding of the Values, we have introduced the Thought of the Week. Each ‘thought’ links to the Value, allowing the children to think deeply about its meaning. The ‘thoughts’ encourage children to reflect on their own behaviour as well as others.
Each week the children’s behaviour will be celebrated during our whole school sharing assembly. Children who have tried hard to incorporate the Thought of the Week and Value into their learning will become Benington Bees. Children have the opportunity to nominate a class member to become a Benington Bee.
