'Live Life in all its Fullness’
Our aim at Melsonby Methodist Primary School is to provide an education of the highest quality underpinned by our Christian ethos and values, based on the life and teachings of John Wesley, to children of all backgrounds and abilities.
We offer an education which aims to meet the needs of pupils both academically and in terms of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. As a church school, we welcome children of all faiths and none but we ask that parents and children support our Christian values and ethos.
In the Bible, John 10 vs 10 tell us that Jesus said “I have come that they may have life in all its fullness.”
Life in all its fullness is about living a varied and full life - full of learning, growing, helping, reward, joy, excitement and caring for each other. At school, we aim to help each other to learn how to do this. It is not always easy to live life like this and so we help each other with the challenges that come along the way.
We recognise that the Bible offers us a set of values that embody all we do and are acknowledged by all Christians worldwide as the right way to live. We use the Christian Values to ensure our children develop into excellent citizens and role models for the future. We feel that these Values work hand in hand to support our individual school vision – ‘Live life in all its fullness’
