Vision and Values
At Bradfield CE Primary School we are LEARNING TO LIVE inspired by Christ. With Jesus as our model we are learning to live with
" I have set an example for you, so that you will do just what I have done for you." John 13:15
Jesus is the model for our lives and our learning. We believe that by following his example we will help to nurture truly compassionate and resilient citizens for the future. Our core values are rooted directly in the teachings and life of Jesus and are the foundations upon which we build our school community.
Our four special core values help us to live and to learn
Just as Jesus showed quiet courage knowing the sacrifice he would make and challenging injustice, we believe that to achieve our goals and dreams we too must be brave. By being brave enough to face those difficult times we will grow to be the best we can be. As citizens we need to have the courage to challenge what is wrong and stand up for what is right.
Jesus taught us that as children beloved by God we are able to harness a deep confidence in ourselves to face and overcome barriers knowing that God is with us, always. Learning to live in our modern world requires us to develop the strength of character to bounce back from adversity, to keep going when things get difficult and to make the right choices even when others do not.
What better example of compassion is there than Jesus who loved all people and made a special place in his heart for those who are vulnerable and those who are rejected? Showing compassion to others and to ourselves is not just showing sympathy but also requires us to act. We believe that compassion enables us to learn, play and live with others in harmony and will encourage us to understand others and ourselves.
Joy should be present in every aspect of our school life. Jesus taught us that true happiness comes from knowing the love of God. He taught us to take joy in the natural world around us and in each other. Taking the time to appreciate the small wonders of each day will help us to develop a positive, thankful and humble attitude.
