Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment where children are given the foundations they need to continue to grow and shine as we send them out into the world.
Dear friends let us love one another because love comes from God
Friendship is important to us at St.Peter's. We know what it means to be a good friend and how to show those behaviours in our everyday actions. Also we have lots of friends outside of the school such as the Barton upon Humber Food Bank, The Willows Residential Care home, Edukaid, The Seafarer's Mission and Wootton St Andrew's school who we reach out a hand of friendship to throughout the year.
Our playground buddies can be seen helping out around the school and supporting everyone in being a good friend.
Honour your mother and father
Exodus 20 1:21
Every member of our community is part of our school family. We welcome everybody into our family with open arms and a large heart. We know that we are stronger together. We will support each other in times of need and encourage everyone to be the best they can.
We hold lots of events where our families can get together and enjoy some time in school.
Forgive one another as I have forgiven you
Forgiveness is more than just saying sorry. We can forgive because we are forgiven by God.
We are kind in our thoughts, words and actions. Our behaviour policy focuses on teaching children how to forgive one another when things go wrong. Our buddies help children to find resolutions to their problems.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Trust is the very essence of faith; trust in God. Trust in the Lord is a key theme throughout the bible. In our lives today trust is key to living together in harmony so we must value it. We look at practical ways to show they have trust in others. We look closely at how trust can be broken. We learn about role models who demonstrate trust in our school community and in the wider world.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good: his love endures forever
The apostle Paul tells his readers to be thankful in all circumstances. ( 1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Christians believe that God loves and cares for them in many different ways and in all aspects of their life. They know that their response to this should be one of thankfulness and praise.
In our school we consider how we are thankful and appreciative and how we encourage this in others. We thing about being grateful for the things we have and try to learn not to take things for granted. We aim to give thanks to members of our school community. In our worship we thank God for many things.
When he saw the crowds he had compassion for them because they were harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd
At St.Peter's we try and think about what Jesus would do to show compassion in our communities.
We support the Barton upon Humber Food Bank with a regular collection in our entrance hall. Our church school family has really got behind this initiative. This year we spent our enterprise money on goods for the food bank. We are also twinned with a school in Tanzania and we help them to buy toys, books and pencils by supporting EduKaid. We shared the money from our Christmas Fair with them so we got some new things for our school and so did they and we had a wonderful time on our chalk hunt.
We support local initiatives wherever we can.
