Think for Yourself and Act for Others
Welcome to Ruswarp Church of England Primary School! Here at Ruswarp, we provide creative and inspirational learning experiences that encourage all learners to achieve their full potential and to become intelligent, responsible, productive and caring adults who are well prepared for the challenges of a world full of opportunities. We are proud of the way our school’s Christian ethos includes the development of social and moral values, as well as academic achievement.
Think for Yourself
We want to teach our children to be strong, independent and resilient – both in the classroom and in the wider world. We want our children to embrace challenges in the classroom and have the ability to persevere and persist with their learning. We want our children to have courage and faith in their own beliefs and convictions and to have the strength to stand against something that isn’t right. We want to help develop children’s moral fibre and equip them for the skills they need to flourish in the 21st Century. Our school is for those of all faiths and none, but our Christian message is that God will support us.
Act for Others
Based on Christian teachings, we want our children to be kind, respectful and generous. We want children to be thankful and humble and to support their peers. We want our children and staff to recognise their roles and responsibilities within the school community and the wider world.
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ Matthew 22 v37-39
