Through Jesus Christ we learn to love, grow in wisdom and perseverance and to share friendship. Inspired by our Christian values, we aim to encourage the children’s enjoyment of learning for life and to take pride in all they do.
Love is a core Christian value. The English word "love" has many different meanings, but the Greek word, agape, used in the New Testament, is commonly known as "Christian love." At Bulphan Academy, love means respect, affection, good-will and selfless concern for the wellbeing of each other.
The Bible talks of wisdom as a gift from God. Wisdom is about being prepared to listen to the advice of others, thinking before you speak and choosing silence over words. At Bulphan Academy, wisdom involves considering others, deliberating over the issues, reflecting on the long view and taking into account all possible consequences.
‘Greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for friends’. At Bulphan Academy, we encourage children to make deep and satisfying friendships. We help children who are having problems with their friendships. We teach children that Jesus is our friend who likes us and enjoys being with us.
‘And when Jesus had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards He was hungry’. At Bulphan Academy, we encourage the children to keep going even when things are tough. We ensure that the work we give children is challenging enough that all children have opportunities to develop persistence –we want all children to experience success…..but also to appreciate that sometimes success involves struggle. We tell the children that God’s love for them endures for ever…whatever they do.
The Bible teaches us to show the core Christian value of Respect to God, our neighbours and the World around us. As we are made in God's image, by showing respect and consideration to those around us, we are, in turn, honouring God himself. At Bulphan Academy, this means showing care and consideration for ourselves, the pupils in our school and to the adults, parents and wider community who support us in our learning. This way, we can grow together in God's love, show dignity and understanding to those around us and celebrate the value of each and every individual.
At Bulphan Academy, we place great emphasis on high expectations of work and behaviour. We value positive relationships and caring attitudes between all of the school community.
Working in partnership with parents, families, the church and the community it is our aim to:
• To create an environment, based on strong Christian values where everyone shows and understanding and respect for other faiths and cultures.
• Provide high quality learning through a stimulating and challenging curriculum.
• Value every individual and promote positive self-esteem and mutual respect.
• Provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment.
• Provide equal and appropriate opportunities for all.
• Develop independence and a positive attitude to learning.
• Encourage our children to realise their full potential – and strive to reach it in everything they do.
At Bulphan prayer is an integral part of the school day. This page shows some of the prayers the children can choose to take part in at different times of the day.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Thank you for the world so sweet
Thank you for the food we eat,
Thank you for the birds that sing
Thank you God for everything!
For what we are about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful.
Help us to remember those who are starving.
Home Time Prayer
Now the day is over, we lift our hearts and say,
Thank you heavenly father for today.
We're sorry about the wrong things
we're glad about the right
Keep us heavenly Father in your heart tonight.
Bless us through this night
