Vision and Values

School Vision

 

Our new school vision is: Looking at Jesus’ as our example, he inspires us to live out our Christian values; to aspire to be the best we can be; seek new challenges; grow in our beliefs and achieve all that we can. 

 

We understand that this can be a lot for people to remember and bring to mind quickly so we have broken this down into four key words, or motto, which capture our vision and are easy to remember.

 

This motto is: Aspiring, Seeking, Believing, Achieving 

 

It is only right that as a church school a biblical scripture should underpin our vision and values.  The scripture we believe underpins our vision and our values is:

 

Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set the example in what you say and in how you live.” – 1 Timothy 4:12

 

 

We believe this vision, along with its associated values, theological underpinning and scripture set the tone for our entire school community.  We want our children to know that even though they are young they can achieve anything if they put their mind to it.  We also believe that children have much to teach us as adults about how we can live in harmony with each other and in taking responsibility for how we live our lives.

 

Christian Values

 

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.
