At St Michael’s we have 5 core values, which were chosen by the students and influence the way our students behave in and out of school.
Our Christian Values are firmly rooted in Christian teaching, they are not free floating, and students are able to link them with the teaching and example of Jesus and other real life examples.
The flames created by Mr Cheal represent the Holy Spirit, the part of God that lives within us.The Holy Spirit guides and Supports us as we live out the values of the Christian faith.
The Knight created by Priya Haran represents courage
"A knight is brave and shows strength which is All part of courage."
The hands created by Sian Stroud represent Equality.
"The clasped hands show two people respecting each other and seeing no difference. It shows that all people should be treated the same".
The Cross created by Hannah Colebourn represents Forgiveness
"I chose the cross as it is a symbol of forgiveness. Jesus died on the cross to forgive us for our sins"
The Dove created by Brodie Woodward represents Peace
"I chose the dove from the school badge. People recognise the dove as a symbol of peace."
Love is the centre of the Christian faith. The phrase “Do all things with love"reminds us that love should influence every action we take and every word we speak
Our schools Christian values are not just there to be spoken about but lived out in daily life. At St Michael’s each term a Values service is held, students are nominated by staff, their peers or parents for the school values awards, these students are then presented with a badge by the head teacher and commended for their actions.
