Our Christian Vision
“My command is this: Love one another,
as I have loved you.”
John 15 v 12
Our school community believes a connection to God as the Vine ensures our spiritual growth. Our vision as a school community is to strive to follow the example of Jesus to “Love one another as I have loved you”.
As we learn to be more like Jesus, we hope to flourish spiritually, socially and academically.
In doing this, we will build positive and fruitful relationships, and strive to be the best we can be as individuals and an organisation, whilst developing the values of kindness, forgiveness, self-control, respect, courage and gratitude.
kindness - forgiveness self-control - respect courage - gratitude.
At Houghton School we have adopted six Christian values which underpin all our work and relationships. Pupils, staff, parents and visitors are asked to do their best to uphold these values in the work they do, their dealings with each other, when faced with difficult situations and their witness in the community.
As a Church of England school our worship is of a mainly Christian nature but we draw on the teachings, values and experiences of all the faiths our school represents.
Our Class books this term have linked to our Christian Values. Teachers have shared these in Collective Worship too.
Leicester Wombles led a whole school assembly and then went with Year 1s to Houghton Park to do a bit of litter picking. We found out about local volunteers who make a difference by what they do and this supported our Year 1 Change-maker theme for the year.
