TRUTHFULNESS

Your word is truth

John 17:17

"My class value is truthfulness, you don't cover up the truth when you are truthful" Harley
"You don't tell a lie, when you are honest" Sahala
 

Spiritual The apostle Paul urges the followers of Christ to speak the truth in love in order that they might become a more authentic expression of Christ’s body on earth. We always try to combine truthfulness with kindness so that we encourage each other and build one another up.

Moral   As members of a community seeking to live out our Christian values, we believe that knowing the difference between right and wrong will be of only partial use if we do not have the courage to speak the truth and do what is right.

Social   Fundamental to the relationships is an expectation of truthfulness. We explore with the children the consequences of lying or lack of integrity, not only in our school community, but in the wider world as well as in the political arena.

Cultural   As a Church of England school we understand that a person’s understanding of the truth and truthfulness will sometimes be influenced by their religious and cultural experiences. We promote curiosity and respect as we learn about the diversity of beliefs and social backgrounds that make up modern Britain’s society.

As a parent you too can get involved by clicking on the value above and sharing our 'Take Home Sheet' with your child.
