Vision and Values
'Be the best you can be'
Our school vision was developed through consultation with staff, governors, children and parents. It is built on the foundation of John 10:10 'I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.'
Our vision permeates everything that we do. We want our children to be the best that they can, aspiring to achieve all that they can and understanding what it means to have life in all it's fullness.
We have drawn up a set of core values in conjunction with staff, children and governors which permeate the whole school and its ethos. We believe that these values are demonstrated in the life of Jesus as he walked the earth. The way we act and the way we expect the children and parents to act are based on these tenets. As we share these values and behave according to these we are sharing the love of Jesus with each person we meet .
These values are:
Respect, Courage, Humility, Forgiveness,
Truth, Fairness, Responsibility, Compassion
We ensure that children across the school understand these core values on a practical level. Each of our values is rooted in biblical scriptures which not only maintains their Christian foundation but also develops a sense of sharing the Christian message. Every school year begins with a series of lessons on how these values will be demonstrated as individuals, class and whole school body. Thereafter, each week we focus on one particular value through our worship and class work, sharing in the biblical message and looking at practical ways in which we can demonstrate our values within our school, our community and within the wider world..
With the help of a parent, who is a secondary school art teacher, our children created some stunning artwork which represents and celebrates our values.
