And it looks like all the students (leaders and players!) are doing a fine job 😃 I love the partnerships we have with our primaries; makes “big school” a much easier step to take.

Our motto:

Be Aspirational 

Be Courageous

Be Exceptional

 

ASPIRATIONAL: Creating possibilities – achieving potential

COURAGEOUS: Putting learning first - persistence with a purpose

EXCEPTIONAL: Activating awareness - accelerating progress

 

Our four main drivers

  1. Living well together
  2. Develop wisdom in all
  3. Courageous education with character
  4. The highest hopes and aspirations

BIBLE LINK

PLEDGES

1Living well together

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others” Philippians 2:4

 

 

1. Treat each other with dignity, respect and acceptance. We will celebrate diversity, all cultures and faiths. We will not prejudice, for any reason.

2. Be polite and well-mannered to each other and all adults. This means for example, saying ‘Good Morning’ ‘Good Afternoon’ and holding doors open for each other. We will be willing to show forgiveness.

3. Respect our environment. This means never dropping litter in school. It also means conducting ourselves in a calm and sociable manner within our local community.

4. Never use offensive language. This means making our points politely and respectfully. We will listen to each other and if we disagree we will use dignified and appropriate language.

5. Be healthy and look after our physical and mental well-being. This means eating well, living healthy lifestyles, being active and outside a lot. It also means asking our friends if they are ok and being there when they need us.

 

 

2. Develop wisdom in all

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13

 

TBC

(working party meeting 5th May)

3. Courageous education with character

“Even if you have a little faith, you can say to this mountain ‘move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing is impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

 

TBC

4. The highest hopes and aspirations

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14

ESJ is a place where all are freed to succeed within an environment of hope, dignity and respect & the very highest expectations. ESJ strives to be the heartbeat of our local community where students are not only given the opportunity to succeed but also the courage to develop into exceptional members of society, equipped with the tools that they need to smash through any barriers and fulfil their life-long potential"

“Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will succeed” Proverbs 16:3

 

CHAPLAINCY

CHURCH OF ENGLAND SCHOOL

Epping St. John’s School is a Church of England school that offers a caring community underpinned by the Christian values of acceptance and respect to encourage personal excellence and resilience. We have strong links with our local parish church, St. John’s Church, with regular visits to school by the Clergies and regular visits to the local church to commemorate different Christian calendared events.

Our Christian ethos means that there is an absolute openness and acceptance of those who do not share this faith.

As part of the Christian family, we show love and care to our community in the charity and volunteering activities that we get involved in each year.

Our vision is to create an environment where students embody the Christian values of the school and represent not only our ethos but also that of the community we live in.

 

ASSEMBLIES

Our four core Drivers are the driving force behind our assembly programme with one session a half term specifically dedicated to a value and the others making links to the values. The vast majority of assemblies are specifically Christian and an increasing number of these acts of Christian worship focus on our distinct Anglican background.  The liturgical year is explored through assemblies including celebrations such as the Epiphany, Candlemas and Easter to name a few.  Christian ethos themes are also included in the assembly calendar.  For example, celebrating diversity, forgiveness, fairtrade fortnight and British values.  Key festivals of world religions feature at least termly. We have a chaplaincy team consisting of our local Clergy Rev. L. Batson as well as Christian Ethos student leaders and a Christian Ethos staff working party.  All are involved in the planning and delivery of assemblies, as well as all staff and students in the school. SMSC, Be Attitudes and the Drivers are all included in each assembly.

 

CHAPLAINCY TEAM

As well as the weekly assembly the Chaplaincy Team have been instrumental in devising a thought for the week to allow students a daily weekly act of reflection.  These nuggets are often verses from the Bible, Church teachings or are the words of inspirational Christian figures. Weekly Bible quotes are incorporated into all front slides across the whole school curriculum for reflection.

The thoughts for the week also reflect the outlook of some of the other religious traditions found in our local and school communities. This allows students to learn about and from other viewpoints as well as making connections between all peoples of faith.

Collective worship takes place via daily form focus, weekly assemblies and daily prayer.  Students are expected to say the Lord’s prayer if Christian or bow their heads as a sign of respect if non-Christian. The school prayer has been written and chosen by the Christian Ethos working party and students.

In addition, members of the Chaplaincy team are involved in advising, reviewing and monitoring how the school honours it commitment to the core values of Church of England education. They support the school in preparing their DFEs Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) and on acting on the outcomes of the inspection.  They are also a vital part of our governing body.

The Chaplaincy team also come to the school twice a week to spend time with students and staff alike. People wishing to ask questions about faith/belief can drop in speak to the team.
