Christ the King supports the development of the whole child through the adoption of the Jesuit Pupil Profile. The Pupil Profile is composed of 8 pairs of virtues that sum up what pupils (and staff) in our Catholic Schools should be living and how they should be learning, in keeping with St Ignatius Loyola’s own vision that we can show…"improvement in living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good."
Each half term the children focus on a new pair of virtues. During this time pupils will work in class and within liturgies to discuss what each virtue means, how do we demonstrate it in our words and actions within our daily life. At the end of each half term pupils who have have clearly demonstrated a virtue or are working towards developing that aspect of themselves will be presented with a certificate.
Jesuit Pupil Profile
Pupils in Christ the King are growing to be . . .
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices
Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.
Faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future.
Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.
Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good
Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better.
Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others.
The Jesuit understanding of education reflects the Church’s vision for all Catholic schools: “There is no separation between time for learning and time for formation.”
It is our hope that we can support the children of Christ the King, in partnership with the home and the Parish, to show these qualities in their work and play and to grow in understanding of their faith and themselves through reflection, prayer, discussion, academic work and collective worship.
This Years Half Term Virtues:
Grateful and Generous
Attentive and Discerning
Compassionate and Loving
Faith Filled and Hopeful
Eloquent and Truthful
Learned and Wise
Each Half Term we work hard to demonstrate and celebrate these Gospel virtues. These virtues become an integral part of our every day school life, collective worships sessions, RE lessons and whole school assemblies. Linked to our half term virtue a certificate is presented to a child who has been identified as demonstrating the virtue in their actions and words.
