“We love to learn, we learn to love,
with Christ as our guide we love and learn together”
Our children are encouraged to respect their own faith and those of others in our caring Christian environment.
As a Church of England school, Christian values lie at the heart of all we do.
We have twelve key values that we learn about and try to live out in our everyday life:
Each half-term we focus on one of these values in particular, thinking about what the teachings of Jesus tell us about the value and considering how we can develop these values in our own lives and those of our community. As well as learning about this in our daily worship, we talk about our values in class and we have special prayer walls where we can think , pray and respond to a challenge related to the value for the term.
Our school values in 2018/19 are:
Hebrews 12.1: Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us that is before us.
Mark 10.14: Let the children come to me.
Matthew 7.12: Treat others as you want them to treat you.
Deuteronomy 31.6: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged
for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Galatians 5.13: Serve one another in love.
Zechariah 8.16: Tell the truth to each other.

Christingle December 2018
We held our Christingle service on Tuesday 18th December in school. It was a special experience, especially for the Reception children as it was their first Christingle service at St. Philip's. We discussed the true meaning of Christmas for Christians and reflected in prayer for the thankful gifts that we receive.
