Bredhurst Values (SPIRIT of Bredhurst)

Self-control

Perseverance

Inspiration

Respect

Inclusion

Trust

 

 

 

Our school vision is deeply rooted within the theology from the Bible; using the way that Jesus as an adult shared his messages through the use of Parables. Jesus knew that learning through stories was a strong way to share and teach important messages such as trust and inclusion. At Bredhurst we mirrored this approach and chose five parables / Biblical stories from the Bible in which to nestle our vision and values. These are about ordinary people who chose to help, forgive and trust reflecting Jesus’ teaching and believing in their faith of God. This is what we at Bredhurst hope to provide for all the pupils, staff, parents and community. We hope to give everyone the opportunity to learn, and grow, through sharing our understanding of stories from the Bible to guide us in the right direction and under the love of God.

 

 

The five Biblical stories that we are embedding the vision and values through are:
 

  • The lost son, Luke 15: 11-32 (Self Control / Trust)
     
  • Raising of Jairus’ daughter, Mark 5: 21-43 (Trust / Inspiration)
     
  • Calming the storm, Mark 4: 35-41 (Perseverance / Self control / Trust)
     
  • Jesus feeds the five thousand, John 6:1-14 (Inclusion / Respect)
     
  • The Good Samaritan, Luke 10: 25-37 (Inclusion / Self Control / Respect)

 

The biblical stories / parables show many of our school SPIRIT values. However the ones above are the ones that the pupils picked out when exploring the meanings of the parables. Each of these parables above shares an important message which we feel will help our pupils, staff, parents and community to grow and flourish into adulthood.

The four elements Wisdom, Hope, Community and Dignity are also evident within Bredhurst CEP School. These are shown through our lessons, AOW, playtimes and extra curricular activities. Within these elements the pupils focus on the local community such as serving community lunch once a month and engaging in conversations with local villagers, and learning about how to support children further afield in Africa through learning about Mary’s Meals, providing food for children through raising money.

We will continue to explore the elements, SPIRIT values and our school vision or encompassed by the Church of England vision:

 

Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good.
