Be positive, be ready, be kind so that you let your light shine

At Boxted St Peter’s our vision is to provide every pupil with an outstanding education. Our positive, supportive Christian school community is united in mutual respect and the pursuit of one common goal – to provide every child with a safe, happy, inspirational learning environment.

Our curriculum is centred around 3 principles of Christian teaching, Be Positive, Be Ready, Be kind, we encourage independence and debate in all we do so that our pupils develop the courage to stand up for what is right and develop confidence to let their light shine.

Be Positive: We all have different gifts. Each gift came because of the grace that God gave us.’ Romans 12:4

We recognise that every one of us have gifts and talents, which need to be nurtured and celebrated. We will ensure that each child can grow and flourish during their time with us. We will support all our children to build firm foundational skills which are rooted in our Christian values. Here, education has no limits; every member of our school has the potential to be utterly brilliant.

Be Ready: ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ Philippians 4:13. We strongly believe that our children are capable of all things and we aim to empower and equip them to be the best that they can be and to reach their full potential. We seek to inspire and celebrate a deep love of learning and act as role models who shine the light of Christ. Jesus empowered his disciples through the way he lived and the love and respect he showed to everyone. God can empower each and every one of us to become more like Jesus.

Be Kind: ‘A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’ John 13:34-35.God created everyone and formed us in his own image. We are all special and unique. We need to respect each other, respect the world we live in and respect ourselves. It is important that we treat others the same way that we would like to be treated. We each form a thread of the rich tapestry of life and need to value the differences that create the bigger picture

Our Christian values of peace, forgiveness, respect, compassion, perseverance and hope will empower learners to make the correct choices, develop socially and lead by example.

Our children will enjoy the adventure of learning. Through their academic endeavours they will discover, explore and relish challenges. Their enquiring minds will be ignited through academic enrichment. We seek to cultivate confidence well beyond the classroom. High standards of English and Maths are our priority but we will enrich our traditional reading, writing and mathematics lessons with a wide range of trips, outdoor activities and creative lessons that ‘bring learning to life’ to engage and inspire the children.

Through their successes they will develop the self-belief and life-long skills needed to shape the future; we will nurture them – for the children of today, are our guardians of tomorrow.
