OUR SCHOOL PRAYER
Our School Prayer is also the vision we have for our school. We say our prayer at the start of the week in Monday worship and again on Friday, to ensure that it wraps around our week.
Our School Prayer joins our school family together- we say it for all members of our family: current, past and future.
This is our school.
Let peace dwell here,
Let the rooms be full of contentment,
Let love abide here,
Love of one another,
Love of mankind,
Love of life itself,
And love of God.
Let us remember
That, as many hands build a house,
So many hearts create a school.
Each section of our Vision is biblically rooted (and these expansion notes can be found on our visions and values page) and links to the distinctiveness is our school. A key biblical link is Matthew 28:16-20.
At The Vine we believe in using prayer in a number of ways. If you would like to learn more about the different types of prayer we use or to learn to write your own prayers please watch the training videos we have recorded, below:

Remembrance Prayer by Year 3
Help us to remember all those who fought in the war for us 100 years ago.
Thank you to all those brave men and women who still risk their lives to protect us every day.
Help us wear our poppies with pride for many more years to come.
Remembrance Prayer by Year 4
I feel the touch of red poppies swaying against my frightened skin.
I hear guns firing and families crying.
I see the sight of the soldiers’ injuries, poppy-red.
I smell the stench of sadness in the soldiers’ breath.
I taste fear in my mouth, dry as the smoky air.
I feel the velvet poppies entwined into barbed wire fences,
I hear the sound of silence complete with loneliness and fear
I smell the blood from the innocent soldiers
I taste the soldiers’ confidence, perseverance and bravery
The sight of the sun setting in the distance engulfing the poppy field as the day draws to an end…
It is finished.
