Virtues to live by

Virtues to live by

We are learning about Gospel Virtues and Values by using our Diocesan scheme 'Virtues to Live By' and this is enhanced by weekly virtues awards, where children select a child in their class to receive an award for demonstrating the virtue which we are learning about.

 Respect - “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.”
Matthew 7:12 

Courtesy - “Do not speak evil of anyone, but be peaceful and friendly, and always show a gentle attitude towards everyone.”
Titus 3:2

Thankfulness - “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
Psalm 106:1

Hope - “Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Isaiah 40:31

Patience - “Be patient and wait for the Lord to act, don’t be worried about those who prosper or those who succeed in their evil plans. Don’t give in to worry or anger; it only leads to trouble.”
Psalm 37:7-8

Faith - “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

Simplicity -  “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21

Charity - "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:9

Forgiveness - “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13

Resilience -  “The Lord is my strength and my song.” Psalm 118:14

Perseverance -  ‘O God, put a steadfast spirit within me.’ Psalm 50:12

Kindness - “Never neglect to show kindness and to share what you have with others.” Hebrews 13:16

Honesty - “May my goodness and honesty preserve me, because I trust in you.” Psalm 25:21

Service - “Each of you should use the gifts God has given you to serve others.” 1 Peter 4:10

We also subsidise this with the resources from the Jubilee Centre at Birmingham University. You can find parent resources here to support you.
