Although there are many Christian Values, we have chosen four which we have placed a strong emphasis on to help create and sustain the Christian ethos of our school.
These values are:
Children who are shown keeping to our Christian values will be rewarded with ones of our Christian value stickers.
At Sturry we celebrate our Christian faith with acts of worship on a daily basis. Below is a timetable of our collective worship.
|Monday||Whole school worship - main hall||Led by Mr Martin who will introduce the weekly theme.|
|Tuesday||Whole school worship - main hall||
Led by Lise Jennings (Canterbury Christian Schools Trust), Graham Nunn (Diocesan Childrens Missioner for Canterbury) and Mrs Acors building on the themes of the week.
|Wednesday||Hymn Practise KS1/KS2||Led by Miss Parr, focusing on songs for worship (This term we are learning songs of Harvest)|
|Thursday||Whole school worship - main hall||Led by Rector Peter Cornish or Peter Freeman|

All classes take a turn leading the worship, parents of the lead class are invited to join us each week.
Our Buddies have been trained by Mrs Howell, our Nurture Assistant. This training involved the children learning how to model their school christian values and how to be a good example and encourage others to do the right thing. The buddies have explored what it means to have empathy and compassion to be able to help others in our school. They have learnt how to make good and wise decisions when they deal with problems that the children they are helping have at school.
