Theological Underpinning: Wise and foolish builders Matthew 7:24-7

The Wise and Foolish Builders

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

 

Our School Values

Our school values are taken from our vision statement. They are love, compassion, community and courage.

Love: We value love at Oakbridge and are committed to a loving and nurturing ethos where pupils feel safe, loved and valued.

Compassion: We value compassion and will model and develop compassion in our children for each other, their adults, the wider community and the world around them.

Community: We value community as we are part of building a new community in North Northallerton. Our school is a hub for the local community, including for worship, community use and support. We aim to develop a sense of responsibility in our pupils to contribute to their community.

Courage: We value courage in our pupils and will encourage them to take risks in their learning and have courage to make the right choices in their behaviour in school and beyond.

 

These values will allow us to put God’s words into practice, like the wise man who built his house on the rock.
