During the day to day life of our school community we seek to promote the key Gospel values of love, courage and respect.
At The Epiphany School we aim to build a firm foundation for future learning through an inspiring curriculum where children’s uniqueness is celebrated and nurtured.
We are committed to providing a stimulating, safe environment where all members of our community feel, happy, safe and valued to enable everyone to achieve their full potential and are able to take their place in God’s world.
Our School Values
Love is a core value for our Church School because love is at the heart of all that we say, do and believe at The Epiphany School. We show love towards others through our relationships, friendships, compassion and care.
The Bible explicitly tells us that God Is Love and that those who live in love, live in God and God lives in them (John 4:16). Love means you are never alone.
Courage is a core value for our Church School because courage allows us to stand up for ourselves, others and persevere to overcome challenges. In the Bible, God tells his people to ‘be strong and courageous and do not be frightened, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go’. This is demonstrated in the Bible through the Easter story where Jesus shows courage in the face of death.
We show courage in School by saying ‘No’ when everyone is pressing you to do something you do not want to do; we also stick at a task when it is difficult and stand up for ourselves and others.
Respect is a core value for our Church School because respect is at the core of Jesus’ message. In the Bible, respect runs through many of the stories beginning with the Creation Story.
In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus gives us the golden rule for guidance: ‘Treat others as you would want them to treat you’ (Matthew 7:12). In order to understand what this means, we must first learn to respect ourselves, thus creating a firm foundation to grow and thrive into a respectful community.
