We are a small primary school nestled between the villages of Great and Little Somerford. We use our rural surroundings to feed into our curriculum and benefit our children’s educational, personal and spiritual growth. Children of all faiths, backgrounds and ways of life are welcome to our Walter Powell family. Our school website is still under construction, so please get in touch with our school office if you would like extra information or a showround of the site.
If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be.
So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
