Our Christian Distinctiveness
Hernhill Church of England Primary School is a caring community underpinned by a strong Christian ethos.
Everyone is welcome at Hernhill.
The vision starts with the four most important words - all are welcome here. Jesus’ message was a message of love. He welcomed everyone to him. As a school, we do the same. All families, all children, all parents, all staff.
This vision is rooted in the passage from the Bible in John’s Gospel, chapter 10 when Jesus is speaking with the pharisees and using the metaphor of the shepherd and the sheep. He talks about how he is the gate for the sheep and all who enter through the gate will have a full life. Our school is rooted in this desire that ALL should experience life in all its fullness.
We see our school a little like the gate in the metaphor in John chapter 10 (above). Somewhere that helps everyone manage the challenges of life and embrace the opportunities. Our school is rooted in this desire that ALL should experience life in all its fullness.
And we do all this through our PEOPLE RULE. Jesus teaches all of us to ‘Treat others as you wish to be treated’ (Luke 6:31) and our special ‘People Rule’ is an outworking of this. This applies to all relationships in our school and underpins everything we do, all policies and procedures.
