Values and Virtues: The Catholic Pupil Profile
Each half term, we focus upon different Catholic values and virtues, demonstrated by Jesus Christ in his own life.
Our Catholic Values and Virtues are:
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.
Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.
Faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future.
Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.
Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good.
Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better.
Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others.

Every week, each class teacher chooses a child who has actively demonstrated these virtues in school. We celebrate these virtues in our virtual Monday Gospel assembly, where the chosen child from each class receives a certificate and badge and a comment from the class teacher about the reason for their choice.
This half term, our Catholic Virtues are Curious & Active focused upon children who demonstrate these virtues . We are therefore looking out especially for children who live out their own faith in their daily treatment of others, with Jesus Christ as their example, and have a joyful optimism in attitude and action.
