Our Church School
Our mission statement is at the forefront of every decision that we make:
Children are at the heart of everything that we do and Christ is the light that guides us.
At Lostock Gralam, we place high importance on our Christian Values. They help us to live good lives and give us strength to be the kind, loving and respectful wider family that makes our school such a special place to be part of.
Our core Christian Values are: Love, Respect, Hope, Friendship, Forgiveness and Courage .
These are displayed proudly in our hall, celebrating our fantastic art skills as well as giving us visual reminders of how we treat each other.
Our Christian Values are also displayed in the children's outdoor reflection area, where they can visit for quiet moments of reflection or simply sit alone or with friends to enjoy God's beautiful world. Our Ethos Team collected ideas from their classes to design our new, beautiful area.
Worship is an incredibly important part of our school day, where we can learn more about our faith and those of others, join together in group and personal prayer as well as providing us with time and space for reflection. Our whole school worship planning is attached as a file to this page.
Our Christian Value this term is "Thankfulness". We have used the following quotes to help us with this.
"Always give thanks for everything to God the Father."
"Piglet noticed that even though he had a very small heart, it could hold rather a large amount of gratitude."

This term, we have found new ways to worship within our bubbles. We felt that it was important however to collate our reflections on worship and have displayed these in the hall so that we can continue to come together as a school. Here are a few examples of our worship reflections.
Each class has a Reflection area where the children can have a moment of calm relfection, write prayers, read the Bible or simply sit.
To celebrate Remembrance Day, each child has decorated a hand made wooden cross with their personal relfections of this important day. We listened to a special worship from Mr Cliff in our church grounds and articulated our thoughts, reflections and responses through art onto our cross. Our church grounds look spectacular with every child's cross placed inside of the word PEACE.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
