First Federation Trust
The role of the ethos team is to preserve and develop the Christian character of the school through its vision and values. They are responsible for supporting and promoting our school ethos. Our ethos committee meet on a termly basis to review the previous term and plan upcoming events. This will involve Reverend Matt, Mrs de Beer (Head of Teaching and Learning), Mrs Lyne (Ethos lead) parent representatives and members of the children's ethos committee.
Our Ethos Committee contribute regularly to our Collective Worship and have planned and led their own acts of Collective Worship.
Each term we hold a whole school Ethos day linked to one of our trust values. This is planned by Ethos leads across the trust and delivered by staff in each of our schools.
Ethos Day 31.10.22 - Hope
Today our Ethos day was focused on 'Hope'. We worked together in our house teams to complete 4 different activities, one English based on 'Lighthouse', one Science based on how lighthouses work, an RE workshop where we learnt a song 'My Lighthouse' by Rend Collective and and Art session where we each painted our own lighthouse picture.
"We learnt that for sailors, lighthouses are a beacon of hope just like Jesus is for Christians." Poppy, Year 5
"Lighthouses are important because they light the way for people at sea and people feel happy and joyful when they see them". Molly, Year 4
