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 November is:
Courage is being brave.
Courage is facing your fears.
Courage is keeping going no matter what
Courage is choosing to ‘do the right thing’ especially when it is hard
Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.’ (Joshua 1.9)
Prayer for November
Our adventurous creator,
Give us courage to choose the path before us,
Risking disappointment to find joy,
Risking failure to be creative,
Risking rejection so that we might love,
Risking stumbling so that we might climb,
Risking the journey for the sake of the homecoming.
We ask in the name of Jesus,
Who risked living and dying for love of us.
