Values and Virtues

At St. Cuthbert's school we have a rich and diverse Catholic Life programme; we believe our faith permeates all we do for and with our children. In other sections of this website we have discussed Prayer, Sacramental Preparation, Saints, SMSVC and Collective Worship - all active elements of Catholic Life. From September 2015 we have adopted the Archdiocese of Birmingham's Catholic Schools Profile. This means we will be working together across all phases of the school to look at those values and virtues that come from the Gospel and teachings of Jesus.

 These values and virtues are taken from the Jesuit Institute which is rooted in the teachings of St Ignatius. They have created a Pupil Profile in which 8 pairs of complementary words have been placed together. The Archdiocese of Birmingham have been allowed to use the Jesuit material and have renamed it the Catholic Schools Profile.

Each half term the whole school will focus on one pair of words; we will spend time reflecting on the meaning of the words; how we see these values in action in our lives and in the lives of others and how we can work to encapsulate these values in our lives.

This half term (6th June- 22nd July) we are focusing on Curious & Active. All classes will discuss the meaning of these words; during whole school assemblies and Masses we will consider what it means to be attentive and discerning people. This half term we will take time to reflect, quietly and peacefully, together so that we can listen carefully and try to hear the inner callings of our hearts.

Values

From November 2014, all schools are required to promote the fundamental values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. The document below explains how we promote these values at St Cuthbert's: Moral and spiritual Values.
