VIRTUES AND VALUES

Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Birmingham must ensure that as part of their Catholic teachings, values and virtues are now a key focus. The values and virtues show how pupils are growing in their faith as well as how schools help their pupils to grow. Schools can really emphasise a particular pair of words throughout a half term. Each half term the focus will change. It is the intention that across the whole of the Archdiocese , schools will focus upon the same pair of virtues at the same time. This will enable us to share ideas and resources and strengthen our common bond. The tables below illustrate this in full:

GRATEFUL AND GENEROUS

Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, now and in the future.

ATTENTIVE AND DISCERNING

 Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.

COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING

Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.

FAITH-FILLED AND HOPEFUL

 Faith-filled in their beliefs and Hopeful for the future.

ELOQUENT AND TRUTHFUL

Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.

LEARNED AND WISE

Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good.

CURIOUS AND ACTIVE

 Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better.

INTENTIONAL AND PROPHETIC

Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others.

Religious Education

Collective Worship

KS1 and KS2 have weekly collective worship sessions, planned and led by the teachers and pupils.  If you would like to attend a collective worship session, please inform your child’s teacher and they can give you further details. 

Class Masses are held weekly.  Please see the school newsletter for information on when your child’s Class Mass is being held.  All are welcome to theses Masses.

Mrs Bury revisits the Sunday Gospel message, to pupils, during her weekly Head’s Assembly and we conclude the week with our Praise Assembly, which is an opportunity for us to praise those who have made special achievements throughout the week. These assemblies are for pupils only, but half termly Golden Assemblies are open to one and all!

The RE Support Network also hold daily prayer in class.  These prayer sessions are planned and reviewed by the St Joseph’s Workers and Liturgy Planners.
