At Raynsford it is our aim to raise standards by promoting a school Christian ethos, which is underpinned by core values. These values support the development of the whole child as a reflective learner within a calm, caring environment.
We give regular thought to how values can be used to support the child as a reflective learner and promote quality teaching and learning.
In our society, children are increasingly encouraged through advertising to think of happiness as something which can be found simply in the material world. They are generally encouraged to experience life in a world which is external to their inner selves.
As a school community we believe that the ethos of the school should be built on a foundation of Gospel values.
Our Value for October is Generosity
“God loves a cheerful giver”
2 Corinthians 9.7
When we think about generosity we usually think about being generous with money or possessions.
However, we can also be generous with our time, our gifts and our abilities.
Generous people often say that they receive much more than they give. Perhaps this is because when someone is generous to us, it makes us want to be generous in return. The opposite of being generous is being selfish.
What kind of person would you prefer to have as a friend?
Prayer for October
Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve.
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not ask for reward, except
To know that I am doing your will.
St Ignatius of Loyola
