Our faith


Our school vision

Arnside National Church of England School is a lively and caring community where all are supported, nurtured and encouraged. Our vision is rooted and grounded in love, God’s greatest gift, which helps and guides everyone at our school to aspire, believe and achieve.

Let all that you do be done in love

(1 Corinthians 16.14)

As a Church of England school, we embrace the teachings of St Paul, from Galatians 5:22-23: 

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,  

goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."  

The greatest of these qualities is LOVE. Through love, all is possible. We believe that these star qualities given to us by God will guide us in developing our aspirations, believing in ourselves and others, and achieving our full potential.

Our Christian vision is taken from the letter the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth where he gave instructions for living God’s way. In the last few lines of his letter, Paul reminds us that all of our actions, however big or small, should be an expression of our love for others.  

We believe our Christian values give us strong foundations to know how to treat ourselves and others with respect, make good choices, and take responsibility for our life-long learning and development; they teach us to believe in ourselves.
