Colsterworth as a Church of England School

At Colsterworth Church of England Primary School, we provide a safe and stimulating environment where all can flourish as children of God. Core Christian values permeate all aspects of school life and the children live out these values in all that they do.  Each term has a different Christian Value as a focus, and the children take great pride in demonstrating how they are able to live out this value.

 

Collective Worship takes place daily and contributes significantly towards children's spiritual development.  Spirituality is valued and scope for reflection is provided both within the RE curriculum and throughout the school.  This deepens the children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC).

We have close links with our own village church whilst also visiting and learning about festivals of other faiths and religions.  We visit St John The Baptist Church to celebrate Christian festivals and Reverend Neil from the Church frequently visits school and leads our Collective Worship.

 

Our Christian Values are:

Creation and Respect & Reverence

Friendship and Peace

Perseverance and Courage

Forgiveness and Compassion

Trust and Hope

Thankfulness and Humility

 

Our Christian Value in Term 3 is Perseverance and Courage. Basic to Christian faith is the claim that God is always present in every situation. This belief has led to great acts of courage that have included facing danger and opposition, overcoming fear, making a stand for what is right and encouraging others to persevere. Through Collective Worship and reflection, we will encourage our children to find the strength and be courageous. 

 

Through the Parable of The Lost Sheep, we will be encouraging the children to persevere, just like the shepherd did in the story when he lost his sheep. Just like the shepherd we will remind the children to:

Not give up easily

Try, try and try again

Stick at a task and see the job through to the end.

 

“The Lord is my light and my salvation--whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life--of whom shall I be afraid?”

                                                                                                       (Psalm 27:1) 

 

But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favour with God."

                                                                                                        (Luke 1:30)

 

"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can Man do to me?"

                                                                                                       (Hebrews 13:6)
