"The school is a warm, friendly, and welcoming community for all families, regardless of their religious belief. Parents speak of pupils being excited about going to school. Attendance is very good. Parents and staff are committed to the school’s Christian vision and values and recognise their positive impact on the lives of the pupils.......... "
(extract from SIAMS Inspection February 2017)
We have six core values at
Morpeth All Saints Church of England Aided First School;
chosen by pupils and governors
The children learn about these in depth
during our collective worship.
We aim to make these values central to
everything we do at school and in life
LOVE We believe that "love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres" 1 Corinthians, Chapter 3 verses 4-7
FRIENDSHIP We believe as friends we can support each other and be supported.
HONESTY We believe in dealing with each other with care, openness and truthfulness.
HOPE We believe that we can work together to make the world a better place.
FORGIVENESS We believe in forgiveness. We can learn from our mistakes and encourage one another to try again.
JOY We believe in learning together with love and laughter.
DO LENT GENEROUSLY
40 days of giving back, doing good and living generously
Thank you to Mrs Pallett and Mrs Thompson for leading the Christingle! The pupils sang songs, read prayers and talked about each piece of the Christingle holding a special meaning:
Autumn 1- This half term Orange Class have been learning about God, David and the Psalms. We talked about why God chose David and why we choose people to do certain jobs. We also discussed which values were important to us and our Christian Values at Morpeth All Saints. We then created a display with all our ideas.
Autumn 2 - We are now moving onto the topic 'Christmas Light' where we will be exploring the symbolism of light. As part of our RE lesson we lit our candle and sat quietly; reflecting on some important questions for example, why did the light turn to dark? How does the light make you feel? What does the light make you think of? Is the light positive or negative? Orange Class then created their own light and dark poems.
Please come and see our Orange Class scrapbook in our Reflection Area, it is filled with our thoughts, ideas and prayers.
