Community: Be Community Spirited
By attending our School, we welcome you as part of the Sherrier Family, a school community that cares for each other and celebrates our differences, achievements and contributions. We support each other through challenges and difficulties in acts of friendship, kindness and compassion. Our aim is that all children and families have a sense of belonging and feel they are treated fairly and with respect .Sherrier plays a central role in the local community and is continuing to build links and partnerships with local churches, businesses and charitable organisations. We aim to allow children to see themselves in the wider world community and hope they will make positive changes in global issues.
This flows from our Christian character. The Bible is clear that humans do not flourish on their own, isolated from others. God does not create people to be alone but in community. The Bible also tells how that original united human community was broken and also of God’s plan to mend what was ruined. When He does, He does not just pluck individuals out of the mess, instead He creates a new human community. The Christian picture of abundant life is deeply rooted in community.
We both pursue a strong school community and root ourselves deeply in our local community with its interlocking parts. We support one another, champion one another’s achievements and care for one another’s well-being. We seek to foster a vision of what it means to be human that is not limited to individual academic achievement. It also includes participation in and contribution to a wider community, enabling the children to grow into being part of our local community.
