Our Values








Our Christian Narrative:

‘God is my strength in whom I trust.’ Psalm 18


Our Bible story:

The parable of the two builders - Matthew 7


'God is my strength in whom I trust.' (Psalm 18)


At St. Andrew's Church of England Infant School, we have a clear understanding of the need for worship and opportunities for reflection. Therefore, every classroom within school has a reflection area to support the children in taking time for prayer and discussion. Each reflection area is unique to the classroom and the children's needs. We have noticed that our lives are very busy with lots of noise and we rarely stop and pause. Our reflection areas give children these moments. When God met Elijah, he did not speak through the strong wind, the earthquake or the fire, but in the gentle breeze (1 Kings 19 1-13). Jesus showed us the importance of retreating from our busy world. In Mark 1:35, we read about Jesus getting up early in the morning and going to find a place where he could pray alone. Perhaps helping our children to meet with God quietly may be one the most enduring gifts we can give them - it allows us to offer our children the chance to reflect and believe 'God is my Strength in Whom I trust'.
