Christian Values

Trust • Justice • Friendship • Forgiveness • Endurance • Compassion

At Beechwood CE Primary School, it is important that we teach our children about Christian values and how to apply them in their lives. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident and happy citizens.


Trust is when you believe in the honesty of someone or something. Trust is important in all relationships. Jesus trusted his disciples and shared this advice with them.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me."
(John 14:1)


Justice is ensuring that everyone is treated fairly and decently. Justice is essential for peace as without justice, there can be no peace.

"In the book of Exodus, the people are instructed to deal with everyone fairly and never to show partiality to one group above another."
(Exodus 23:2-6)


A friend is someone who you like and trust. Friends are caring, respectful and are not afraid to tell each other the truth."

"A friend's loving criticism is worth more than the empty compliments of someone who does not really care for you."
(Proverbs 27:6)


Forgiveness is when we excuse a mistake and no longer feel anger towards someone who has done something wrong.

In the Bible, Paul says "Be compassionate and kind to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
(Ephesians 4:32)


Endurance is when we do not give up, even when things are difficult.

"Even Jesus, for all his strength and ability to endure, looked to his disciples to help and sustain him by watching and praying with him."
(Matthew 26)


Compassion is when we understand the suffering and misfortune of others and we want to do something about it.

"The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made."
(Psalm 145:8-9)
