Values

School Mission Statement - Stepping out boldly with God: ‘Jesus said, follow me.’ Matthew 9.9

Pauntley is an inclusive and caring school of choice. We are child-focussed, with core values to enable us all to follow Jesus’s example and so flourish and contribute to the local community and the world God loves.

At Pauntley we have three core values which were chosen by the pupils.

Respect, Friendship and Courage.

Respect: The school expects its pupils to show respect for each other and adults in the school community and the pupils are encouraged to value their own and other people’s belongings.

Friendship:  The school expects its pupils to find ways of supporting other pupils, restore broken friendships and promote reconciliation.

Courage: The school encourages its pupils to be courageous. Our pupils will face challenges from time to time, and they have to find courage to overcome them.

Every term we focus on a particular Christian Value. Clergy from our local church, St John's, lead worship each week and the children complete different activities at home and in school to further their understanding of each value.
