"Love your neighbour as yourself"- Mark 12:29-31
We believe our role, as Christians, is to be courageous advocates for the common good; locally, nationally and globally. We want to help others because that is what Christ told us to do.
We support a range of charities; locally, nationally and globally. Many of our charity work supports organisations suggested by the pupils.
We advocate standing up for what we believe and our six Christian Values ensure that we all have opportunities to discuss big issues, to challenge injustive and to engage in activities that can bring about change. In Collective Worship, Religious Education and many other opportunities in our curriculum, we study inspirational individuals and groups such as Martin Luther King, Malala Yousafazi, the Sufragettes, Rosa Parks and many biblical role models. We participate in global and national days/weeks of recognition such as Black History Month, International Day of People with Disabilities and recently held our very own Pride in Our School Day.
The Eccleston Family has an excellent grasp on the meaning of belonging to a local and global community and the sense of responsibility that comes with this.
Celebrating Courageous Advocates
Every half term at Eccleston CE Primary School, we aim to inspire our pupils to engage in social action and be courageous advocates for change in the local, national and global community by celebrating a specifric person from the present or from history in our whole school worship. These people are carefully chosen each year from across the globe and have faced injustive and overcome barriers in order to help others for the greater good.
