Our School Value- Hope

The word hope in ordinary English vocabulary is generally distinguished from certainty. We would say, "I don't know what's going to happen, but I hope it happens". True hope is much more than a general idea that things will get better. It is more than a belief in progress, which sees the world and people as getting better all the time, growing away from violence, ignorance and confusion.

When you read the word hope in the Bible, “Set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ" Peter 1:13, hope is not wishful thinking.

Christian hope is when God has promised that something is going to happen and you put your trust in that promise. Christian hope is a confidence that something will come to pass because God has promised it will come to pass. Hope comes from the promises of God rooted in the work of Christ.

At Fylingdales School, the children belong to a supportive and nurturing environment. The children are encouraged to try and keep trying. Opportunities such as collective worship, service participation, reflective spaces and community involvement (for example, the school choir singing for a church friendship group) offer the children a sense of hope and mechanisms to offer and experience hope.

Hebrews 10:23

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
