John 10:10

Statements to Live By

Statements to Live by


Each week in school we have a ‘statement to live by’. These statements help the children and us as adults too, to think about who we are, what we believe and what we hope to become. We hope that together we will nurture a sense of what it is to be fully human and alive as children and adults sharing in this Christian Catholic community. There are 36 statements in all which are linked to our Religious Education programme ‘Come and See’ and the Catholic life of the school but each one is relevant no matter what our religious beliefs are. Each statement will be introduced on Wednesday and supported by activities in school and each statement will be celebrated in prayer during a liturgy each week.  The statements will be displayed in each class, on our newsletters, on our school website and around the school.  The statement will also be sent out to parents on Parent Hub. Sometimes, we will suggest a simple activity which you might carry out with your child to support their understanding of the statement.

Statement to Live By - 8th November

During our Statement to Live By liturgy the children reflected on How I can Look after Myself. We talked about how God loves us all and wants us to look after ourselves.
