Jesuit Pupil Profile
A key question all schools have to ask themselves is ‘What kind of young people do we hope to produce?’
At SS. Peter and Paul's we have adopted the Jesuit virtues and want to promote and embed these into our children so that they develop into young adults who make the school and their family proud.
This is not a random set of virtues, nor is it a description of a generic ‘nice person’, but is a vision of a good and virtuous person rooted in the teachings of St Ignatius Loyola and, more deeply than that, in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We truly believe that these virtues go hand in hand with the way we educate and help to bring up the children in our care. Our aim is to introduce a pair of virtues during each half term and make links to the current good practice the children are already participating in, whilst continuing to deepen their understanding of becoming people to be proud of.
By following the Jesuit Pupil Profile Values and Virtues, our pupils will 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.
