Our Values 2022-2023

Our Vision and Values 
As part of our INSET day (Start of the Autumn Term), the Rockcliffe School Community discussed our Vision and Values. 
We identified elements of our school badge and enjoyed some rock buns.

We are continuing on our journey to develop our vision and values for Rockcliffe CE School. 
Autumn 1 2022- Trust 
"Trusting someone is like knowing you can jump and they will be there to catch you
Trust is a really important value. It must be earned.
If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.
Talk together about:
• people who you know that are trustworthy
• practical ways that we can show others that we are trustworthy
• why it is important to be able to trust others when working together as a team
Can you identify this story from the Bible?

Other Bible stories:

In the Bible there are lots of stories about trust. In some of the stories people trust in God; in other stories people break other people’s trust. 
Joseph was very good at trusting. Read his story. How did he show trust? 
Look at the story of Daniel (Book of Daniel). Who did he trust? What happened to him because he showed trust? 
Look at the story of Zacchaeus (Luke 19) who was not a very trustworthy person at all at the beginning of his story. How did he change?

Autumn 1 2022- 
In each classroom, you will find a display which links to the Christian Value- Trust. 

Year 5 thought about the people in their lives and who they trust.  Most importantly, they thought about the foundations of trust and how someone can show that they are trustworthy.

Year 4 
Children used pipe cleaners to make a person who they trust.  Some children decided to make a Christian Cross as they Trust in their Christian Faith.  They discussed their reasons for trusting others and identified how they can show themselves to be trustworthy individuals.

Celebrating our Christian Values
We continue to celebrate members of our school community who demonstrate our Christian Values.  These children/ groups of children are awarded a certificate in our Celebration Collective Worship.  In Week 1, Mrs Jones awarded the certificate to the whole of Year 6- what fabulous role models at the top of the school!  Well done!  All of our Weekly Values certifcates are displayed in the school entrance hall.

Tuesday 20th September 
Reverend Ian was in school for our Collective Worship.  He focussed on the Book of Exodus.  Moses led 600,000 people out of Egypt in the middle of the night. God did not lead Moses and the Israelites through enemy land. Rather, He led them through the desert toward the Red Sea as they journeyed to the Promised Land. God led His people with a pillar of clouds during the day, and a pillar of fire at night. Following these incredible sights would remind them that God was always with them, guiding them each step of the way on their journey to the Promised Land.  Trust in God
Children had some time to reflect on Reverend Ian's Collective Worship. 
When you are finding things hard, who can you trust to lead you to safety? 
Children commented on the Collective Worship and identified that they enjoy Reverend Ian's story-telling.  They also enjoy volunteering as part of Collective Worship.

Autumn 2 - Christian Value - Hope 


‘Hope is a baton, something to be held onto but also passed on. Hope comes to us… to flow through us.’

Think about what seeds need to grow into plants and big, tall trees.
What do you think hope needs to grow?
Why don’t you discuss that with your family and friends?

‘To help my hope to grow, I will…’

Key Stage 2
1. GIVE THANKS for something that was good today
2. ASK FOR HELP with something you have lost hope for
3. REFLECT on your day and think about the things that made you feel hopeful and the things that felt unhopeful
4. SAY SORRY for the times you gave up hope, or took away someone else’s hope
5. DECIDE how you will keep hold of hope tomorrow

EYFS and Key Stage 1

  1. T—What are you thankful for?
  2. S—What are you sorry for?
  3. P– Please help me to…


 Year 5- Initial thoughts about Hope
