Christian Distinctiveness

Our Creation Story Cross

The children were extremely lucky to have a visit from the Rt Revd Robert Springett, the Bishop of Tewkesbury, to dedicate a cross that a group of children had made as part of the school’s University programme. Bishop Robert lead a school worship where the children explained about how they made the mosaic cross depicting the Creation story.

Our Christian Values

As a church school we believe that it is important to promote Christian values and understanding throughout all aspects of school life.  We have worked with staff, pupils, parents the local church and our Governors to come up with 3 core values that we feel Kingsholm is all about.  These are: RESPECT, LOVE and HONESTY.

Alongside this we focus on an additional 6 values which are linked to our core values. Again these were decided by our community as to which values we felt will help our children. These 6 values are focused on as part of a two year rolling programme.

This year we will be looking at:

Autumn 1  -  Respect

Autumn 2  -  Perseverance

Spring 1    -  Honesty

Spring 2    -  Trust

Summer 1 -  Love

Summer 2 - Friendship

 

Home School Values

This term we will be focusing in school on the value PERSEVERANCE. Please click on link below to find some ideas which you may find helpful as you explore the value and have fun together.

Prayer requests

As a Christian school we believe in the power of prayer. If you have any concerns, whether for yourself or someone close to you please visit our value display in the entrance to the Pastoral area. Here you will find our prayer box. Feel free to use the cards provided to complete a prayer request and place it inside the box. All requests will be passed onto St Catharine's church, where your request will be prayed for in one of their services. 

Our Worship Team

The Worship Team help support worship in school. They play an important role during worship through leading praise, reading prayers and producing and operating our values and worship slides for assembly. Our year 5 and 6 Worship Team members, along with our Worship Ministers, lead class worship with our year 1 and 2 children.
