Our Christian vision underpins our curriculum decisions and how we deliver the learning in our school.  We plan opportunities for our pupils to hear about acts of courage both historically and in the present day. Through understanding how Courageous Actions can positively change the world both locally and globally, we show the children that no-one is too small to make a difference

At Rushall, we step forward with courage to achieve beyond expectations

Our school motto:        With Christ we can

Our biblical verse:

"I can do all this through Christ who strengthens me"

Phillipians 4:13

Our inspirational figure: David

“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.”

Dalai Lama


"God is a friend of silence. His language is silence."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Children often need extra help today to relax, concentrate, and find comfort. A wonderful way to get that extra help is through prayer and meditation. While meditation doesn’t need to have anything to do with religion, in Rushall we also practice Christian Meditation.
Christian Meditation 

"nurtures young people’s ability to retain a sense of wonder in their lives, and encourages others to do the same.

Before we, as adults, are able to join in this work, though, we have to acknowledge our own forgetfulness and distraction. It’s not a question of us teaching them anything, but rather of us learning from their simplicity." - " For children it is more straightforward. They are happy to sit down together in silence, let go of their thoughts and simply enjoy the experience of meditating." - " Children meditate together as naturally as they play together. They enjoy the simple discipline with its few clear rules." - "The simple routine brings with it a peace and calmness in an otherwise busy and noisy day and the children are the first to appreciate the advantage of taking time out. It has become clear that many children instinctively value this pure ‘prayer of the heart’." (from Christian Meditation in the UK)



Like other forms of meditation, Christian meditation involves sitting still with eyes closed, focusing the mind by silently repeating the ancient Christian word, Maranatha (Come Lord), and mindfully returning the consciousness to the word when the mind drifts
