Special Families

In school we have special families made up of children from each year group who are led by a ‘Year Six Guardian’. Each family also has an adult member of our staff, a governor or a friend of the school. Special families come together each term to pray and play together. Each session is planned and delivered by the Year Six Guardian.  Activities have included: praying with and for each other, sharing a meal together, completing a family challenge and sharing a game through family playtime. All children love this special time and have built up a bond with their family members.

A family is a group of people who love and take care of each other.

In school we have special families made up of children from each year group who are led by a ‘Year Six Guardian’. Each family also has an adult member of our staff, a governor or a friend of the school.

As in all Christian families, our ‘Special Family’s’ values must be governed by the supreme value:

Love and worship of God.

 During family time we share our special family prayer:

We need each other

We love each other

We forgive each other

We work together

We play together

We worship together

 

Together we use God’s Word

Together we grow in Jesus

Together we love all men

Together we serve our God

Together we hope for heaven

 

These are our hopes and our dreams

Help us to follow them, O God

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen

All children love this special time and have built up a bond with their family members.

‘Being a guardian is a big responsibility but a special one.  You look out for younger children and develop a special connection with them.  We pray together and play together.’

‘Family time is exciting, it’s a special time that we share together.’
