Believe and Achieve

Our Christian Vision

Our school vision:

Believe and Achieve

'Jesus said, 'If we believe, all things are possible'  Mark 23 verse 9

Our school vision is linked to Mark 9:23 in the Bible, where Jesus stated “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

 

We believe that if children have firm foundations based on Christian values,  faith and belief, then they can achieve anything!  'Believe and Achieve' is on our school badge, and our children know that the sky is the limit with belief in God and the teachings of Jesus, allowing them to develop self-belief and achieving well. 

 

Our school vision is at the heart of all we do at John Cross CE Primary School, and this is evident and lived-out in the school community each day.

Our Mission Statement

Following in the footsteps of our founder John Cross,  we are committed to providing a loving, Christian family school based on mutual love, respect and co-cooperation. A safe and stimulating learning environment will enable our pupils to believe and achieve now and in the future.

What our children say about how our school community lives out our school vision.

Comments from our Year 5 & 6 children.

Our school is loving -we have trust and we believe in whatever your dream is.  We are a lovely school and everyone is treated with respect.  We are different – our school has over 300 years of history and everyone’s welcome!

 

John Cross donated all of his money to build this school because he was compassionate and had generosity in his Christian heart.

 

( Poster) Come and join our loving family school – everyone is kind, respectful and treated equally.  We have lovely staff!   (following in the footsteps)  If John Cross saw this school, he would be overwhelmed with Joy.  He showed lots of Christian values including generosity, compassion and respect.

 

  I feel very happy because I am learning at this school right now.  We are a very lovely Christian school.

 

(Poster) Parents who are reading this – you should sign your child up for this school, because it is not any ordinary school.  It is the most caring school you will ever see.

 

   I think John Cross would be amazed if he saw this school today, because it started with him teaching a few children in his house, and look at it now!

 

Come to our school because this isn’t just an ordinary school,  it is a loving, caring school that is populated by over 70 respectful, forgiving students and everyone here has hope in each other for a bright future.

 If you need help, our lovely teachers will sort it out!!!

Our vision and values week.

Each class( in their  bubbles) spent time together understanding our school vision. This was done through age appropriate activities such as drama, group work, drawings and discussions which enabled the children to understand how everything that we do at school is underpinned by the vision and how the vision itself is rooted in the Bible and lived out through our Christian values.  These pictures show some of the activities that the children were engaged in.

We also investigated the meaning of 'Believe and Achieve', how this is linked to the Bible through Jesus's actions and many Bible stories and how we can 'Believe and Achieve' both now and in the future.
