Christian Ethos

Ian Ramsey CE Academy, part of Northern Lights Learning Trust, aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian faith and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils. We believe that our Christian values spring from the two great commandments: ‘Love God and love your neighbour’. We seek to live this out through the power of the Holy Spirit.

St Paul reminds us in Galatians 5:22-23 that the fruit of the Spirit is ‘Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control’. These are also underpinned by the Old Testament injunction to ‘Do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God’ (Micah 6:8). These values, rooted in the Christian Faith, come as a package and we aim to embed them in the life of our Academy in a worked-out way. We recognise that at times we may highlight particular values to bring them into greater prominence within our Academy.

The Multi-Academy Trust Members and Trustees are aware of their responsibilities in law and are committed to the provision of an excellent education within its academies in accordance with our Anglican foundation.
