Christian Ethos

At Cinnamon Brow, we display our strong Christian Ethos throughout our daily activities. We have our six core Christian Values that are embedded into our worships, curriculum and general school life.



Christian hope is grounded in the character of God.  In the book of Psalms, in the Bible, the writer says to God: 'my hope is in you.'  It is a hope rooted in the love and faithfulness of God.  Hope is not wishful thinking but a firm assurance that God can be relied upon.  It does not remove the need for 'waiting upon the Lord' but there is an underlying confidence that God is a 'strong rock' and one whose promise can be trusted.  


Compassion is much more than simply 'feeling sorry for' someone.  It can be perfectly explained as 'suffering with' someone: putting yourself in someone else's shoes and experiencing what they experience.  Jesus showed compassion when he healed.  His actions were always prompted by compassion for people's suffering.  He wept at the death of Lazarus and was moved to act.



Forgiveness is fundamental to the character of God.  Throughout the Bible, God is described as slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin.  Jesus was uncompromising in his command to forgive.  Forgive, he said, 'seventy times seven' (Matthew 18:21).  In other words, forgive and keep on forgiving without limit.


Christians believe that truth is revealed in the Bible and supremely in the person and life of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus' teaching, we are given an insight into the nature of God and the way in which he means us to live.



Perseverance is recognition that life is sometimes difficult and painful, and that it is important not to give up in the face of adversity.  Jesus endured rejection, abuse and the cross, and his followers are warned that they may well have to share that pain as persecution took hold.   Endurance and perseverance are only possible where there is hope and that hope is based on the enduring nature of God's love and faithfulness. 


The word respect is a translation of a Greek word that means 'honour or value'. It literally means 'to place a great value or high price on something.'  To respect everyone, we must be conscious that God has created all people in His image.
