Visions, Values and Worship

Our vision, values and worship are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

 

Our Mission Statement is:

 

Belief in God, our children and their future.

 

Our vision and ethos are based on this statement.

Values

Hope

Friendship

Trust

Endurance

Koinonia

Justice

Compassion

Wisdom

Peace

Service

Humility

Reverence

Creation

Thankfulness

Forgiveness

 

Our six values of Compassion, Endurance, Friendship, Hope, Thankfulness and Trust, chosen by the staff, governors and children, reflect the aspirations we have for each child, to inspire a high level of spiritual and moral reflection and to challenge our learners to take responsibility for their own actions. 

 

More information about these values can be found at www.christianvalues4schools.co.uk.   Alternatively, talk to the children who will happily share their understanding of our school values and the impact this makes on their learning and behaviour.

Religious Education and Daily Worship

 

Christian values are integral to our ethos and teaching, and our daily acts of worship reflect this. In recognition of the particular affiliation and ethos of the school, all staff and pupils are expected to take part in worship, although the right to withdraw does exist.

 

We aim to be a Christian community where everyone can develop an understanding and tolerance of others. In accordance with this and with statutory requirements, collective worship is placed at the centre of the school's daily life. The spiritual, social, cultural and moral welfare of all children is of prime concern to us.

 

As a Church of England school our daily act of Collective Worship (or Assembly) is a special time that brings together members of the school community to worship God.  Worship is led by teachers and children.  During birthday assemblies and class assemblies, families are often invited into school.  Groups of children are encouraged to prepare and lead worship based on one of our themes.  These opportunities allow them to gain valuable leadership experience and extend their ability to think and reflect on a wide range of global issues.

 

Our worship is further enhanced by weekly visits from Father Simon Evans, Vicar of St Martin's Church, Ruislip.  Vicars from other local churches are also invited into our assemblies.  The children are further challenged to think, ask questions and share their views and  about  the world around them.

 

Our worship themes are based on the Christian values listed above. 

 

 

At the beginning of Daily Worship the candle is lit and we say together:

"We light this candle to remind us that Jesus is the light of the world."

 

At the close of Worship as the candle is put out we say:

"Even though this candle is out, we still remember that God is always with us."

 

Our Morning Prayer

We say the Lord's Prayer together and there is always a reflection, with a prayer to end the worship.

 

 

Assemblies at BWI are a time when we all come together for reflection and celebration.
