Our school prayer
O Lord, bless our school
That working together,
And playing together,
We may learn to serve you,
And to serve one another,
for Jesus’ sake,
As a Church School we celebrate a collective act of worship every day. We are very proud of our Worship which takes place in the hall. We have a small altar, light candles, sign the Trinity, say prayers and sing a hymn or song together. All classes have a chance to present a worship and parishioners and visiting ministers regularly lead our collective worship. We welcome parents and families in to share our CELEBRATION WORSHIP every Friday morning at 9.00am. Some of our parents and parishioners also serve refreshments afterwards.
At the beginning of each Worship we say and sign the trinity and light three candles. In the name of the Father, in the name of the son and in the name of the Holy Spirit.
These are our Christian Values. Each week in celebration Worship teachers choose a child that has demonstrated one of the Christian Values the most and they receive the super Citizen of the week award.
“Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
At St Barnabas we are proud of our caring, Christian ethos, underpinned by the Christian values that permeate our teaching and learning and shape every member of our school family. Each half term we focus on a Christian value and explore how it can change the way we live our daily lives.
Our WOW group conducted a survey and we all agreed that the values we feel express our school family are:
Courage – Saint Barnabas was a great ‘encourager’,
Trust, Forgiveness, Friendship,
Service, Generosity and Respect
