Our Latest Statement of Belief

21st May 2023

Our ‘Statement of Belief’ is, “I understand what trust means.”

Time to talk: What is trust? Using a dictionary look up its meaning. ‘Trust’ is something very special that comes from the love and respect one person has for another. It is to be treasured.

Trust is important for learning because children are challenged to trust the grown-ups in school who are there to help them learn and step out of their comfort zones, as they develop new skills. They also trust grown-ups in school if they have a worry ball and need to tell, tell, tell.

What would school be like without trust? Can people be proper friends if there is no trust? Why does Jesus call us to trust in Him, especially when we struggle and life seems hard?
