St Faith’s C.E. Primary School

We place a great deal of emphasis on our school Christian values of Courage, Trust, Love and Hope. These values underpin our teaching and learning and our behaviour expectations. An animal to represents each of our Values. Each of these animals can be found in our environmental area called Lockburn.  We give examples of our understanding of each value through the teachings of Jesus and a Bible story.

We painted Faith our sheep with our school values and a depiction of each Bible story. Faith now stands proudly in our school entrance!

 Bible Story: David and Goliath

 David saw Goliath walking up and down and shouting and he saw that no-one stood up to him. “How dare he challenge us!” said David to the men around him. “We have the living God on our side.”  1 Samuel 17
