Summer term 1: Christian value of respect
This half term we are exploring the value of respect.
At NJK we look to the New Testament to inspire us to offer respect. We learn that Jesus valued every person equally regardless of status, gender, age or wealth. In the book of Mark we learn that when the disciples tried to send children away Jesus said….
‘Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’ Mark 10:14
Jesus shows respect to children
Respect at NJK
We explore the Christian value of respect by teaching that every pupil and adult is made in God’s image and is uniquely precious and worthy of respect. Respect features highly in our school rules and we expect everyone to speak and act respectfully at all times. Our pupils will be seen acting respectfully through gestures, such as holding a door open, using manners and in the way they speak to one another. Through our curriculum, RE and collective worship we strive to offer children the opportunity to learn about different faiths and cultures. We celebrate differences and ensure all are respectful whilst learning about differences.
