Our School’s Vision
1 Thessalonians 5.11 “ Encourage one another and build each other up”
Our school vision is easy to understand as it builds upon the above biblical teaching. Instead of being disappointed or giving up when things get tough , we should give each other the motivation and encouragement to remind one another that a better day lies ahead . At Jarrow Cross our Motto of “Value in Everyone” clearly reinforces the teachings of Paul and permeates school life, we believe that every child is entitled to enjoy their childhood, celebrate their individuality and be the best that God made them to be.
We aim to do this through :
Creating a caring school family living out the Christian vision.
Celebrating everyone’s strengths and efforts no matter how big or small
Creating an environment in which children feel safe and are able to thrive and become the best person they can be.
Promoting the wellbeing of all of our school community
Ensuring everyone is VALUED
Sitting below our vision lies our school Mission Statement
Jarrow Cross Church of England Primary School provides a caring Christian environment where EVERYONE is welcome and given the opportunity to develop their full potential.
this statement represents what we want our children to experience in every aspect of their life at Jarrow Cross
Our Mission Statement is underpinned by our school values of Trust, Honesty, Friendship and Forgiveness. Our values were chosen by the children of Jarrow Cross.
Through our values we remember how Moses both put his trust in God during times of hardship,
Exodus 3:13 "Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you.'
how Jesus taught his followers to be honest in their speech and to keep their promises,
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true;
the friendship between David and Jonathan which was severely tested ,
1 Samuel 42 Jonathan said to David, “Go in peace, for we have sworn friendship with each other in the name of the Lord"
and how Joseph forgave his brothers and the many stories such as The Prodigal Son in which Jesus taught us to forgive one another.
5 Luke 11:32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”
