Our Christian VISION
Jesus said, ‘Love one another as I have loved you...by this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one-another.’ John 13: 34-35
The love of God is made visible in Christ Jesus who is the model for our behaviour and attitudes towards one another.
Jesus Christ demonstrated sacrificial love; he brought healing, compassion and challenge with a passionate desire for justice.
Each one of us is loved as a creation of God. As a response we aim to encourage each member of our school community to grow and flourish in every way to their full potential.
Our vision has evolved from discussions during the past year involving the Adult Faith Group, the Pupil Faith Group, the teaching and support staff, the school Governors and other staff teams, as well as our parents and carers.
The heart of our school
Our vision statement becomes distinctively Christian through the use of a quote from the Bible with the love shown by Jesus Christ at its very heart. Our aim is that our Christian vision underpins everything that we do at St Margaret’s in our school life, our learning and our care and support for one another.
What our children think...
Members of the Pupil Faith Group discussed our vision statement. Here's what they think about it:
‘These words are good. They teach us that you should think about other people before you think of yourself and love each other just like God did to us.’ Year 4 pupil.
‘These are good quotes because they show us how to be and what to do.’ Year 6 pupil.
‘We should love God as we love each other and always respect other people because they can help us and we can help them. It tells us about all the things Jesus has done for us and how He’s trying to teach us how to show that.’ Year 3 pupil.
‘You should love one another. You should put people before you.’ Year 3 pupil.
‘It’s good because it opens our eyes and shows us what God has done for us and how He showed us His love as our Creator. In return he wants us to love each-other the way He has loved us.’ Year 6 pupil.
