Our Values and School Prayer

Our School Vision

 

 

‘Living life in all its fullness.’ John 10:10

 

We endeavour to provide all pupils with the opportunity to thrive and let their light shine. Pupils are guided by passionate staff to discover and develop their talents and interests through an engaging curriculum. We want our pupils to develop into thoughtful, respectful, honest and confident individuals – who have the skills to cope wisely, and show perseverance and resilience when faced with a challenge. Our pupils will be proud to be members of the school community and indeed the wider community in which they live. They will be compassionate and show forgiveness towards others. Through our Christian values, we build and reinforce relationships among all members of the Shustoke family. Our values are owned, shared and lived by all pupils and members of the school community and are the foundations of everything we do. On their journey with us, doors will be opened to our pupils, who will see pathways ahead that will lead to positive, hopeful and fulfilled citizens of the future.

Our School Prayer

 

Dear Lord,

 

We pray for our school and the chances to make new discoveries every day.

 

We pray for our friends and families and all the people with whom we share our learning.

 

Help us to be grateful for all that we have, and to care about those who have less than us.

 

Help us to challenge prejudice, treating everyone equally and with respect.

 

When someone hurts or misunderstands us, help us to forgive one another as you have forgiven us.

 

Help us to care for our world and all the beautiful nature we see, so everyone can enjoy God’s creation.

 

Thank you for all you have done and given for us.

 

Amen.

 Hope 

Hello everyone smiley

I wanted to share with you a lovely book that has been created by Katherine Rundell, a children's author. It is called The Book of Hopes and is filled with short stories, poems and illustrations by famous children's authors. I thought you might enjoy reading some of them together and thinking about the message of hope that they send. 

I have shared my favourite one - The Hope-o-potamus - below. 

I recently noticed the beautiful yellow daffodils on our school field. We planted them together a few years ago and have talked about them being a sign of hope in our assemblies. 

I wonder what hope means to you? You might like to draw a picture or create your own story or poem to share. I'd love to see them if you do. You can email them to school. 

Have a lovely day.
