Loving and learning together in harmony with Christ
‘Love one another, just as I have loved you.’
This is built upon our core values that are embodied by all at St. Anne’s. We refer to them as the 5Rs and our principles by which we live out our values in all aspects of our school life are shared below:
Responsible: We take care with everything and we take control of our behaviour; accepting the consequences of our good or bad choices. We show initiative and we develop our understanding of how we can contribute positively to those living and working close to our school and to those who live in other parts of the world.
Reflective (KS1)/ Respect (KS2): We learn how to treat others positively and think about our own actions; being mindful of justice and peace. We distinguish right from wrong and we learn to respect rules, locally and worldwide. We learn about different cultural traditions and we appreciate and celebrate the uniqueness of us all, everywhere.
Resilient: We learn to persevere even if our work is difficult; we do not give up. We adapt to different situations, make positive responses and always bounce back for more. We accept that aspects of life are not easy, but we learn to continue to participate fully in and contribute positively to our lives today. We want to challenge our thinking and change outcomes for the better.
Ready: We are prepared mentally and physically for learning. We are eager to learn new things and are ready to help others. We develop our self-knowledge, self –esteem and self –confidence over time. We want to be the very best that we can be, whilst maintaining mutual respect for all.
Resourceful: We can use lots of different things to help us learn. We also have the ability to find quick and clever ways to overcome difficulties. We learn how to find a better way to solve problems and address issues. We use the gifts that God gave us to challenge and improve ourselves day by day.
By always holding Christ in our heads and hearts and walking together in His footsteps, we aspire to lead enriched and wholesome lives.
