Vision and Values

SUCCESS AND EXCELLENCE WITHIN A CARING CHRISTIAN ENVIRONMENT

School Vision
Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a man who built his house upon a rock.
Matthew 7-24

We are a caring, inclusive Christian school who believe that each one of us has the ability to achieve our highest potential, living and learning in the fullness of God. Our mission is to help children build a strong foundation so that they can achieve high levels of success in all they do and to be confident in going forward into the next phase of their learning. We aim to develop a wide range of skills throughout all areas of the curriculum developing each individual’s character and talents to the full.  We strive for our children to have endurance and courage even when times are challenging. In our school, we encourage all members of the school community to live in God’s love where care and respect is shown to everyone.

Home School Activity Pages

Home School Values is a resource to help reinforce links with our parents by sharing with them the Value in Focus each half term. The values sheets are full of exciting activities for the family to do together and to help develop reflection and discussion of our school values. This is an effective way for families to enrich the children’s spiritual and personal development.

British Values

The DfE have recently reinforced th need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”

Democracy:

This is taught through

  • Pupil voice
  • School Council  
  • Pupil questionnaires.
  • Sport and House Captains
  • Presenting Certificates for Values
  • Behaviour policy

The Rule of Law:

The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service are regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message.

Individual Liberty:

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make choices safely. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advise how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and PSHE lessons. Pupils are given the freedom to make choices throughout the day.

Mutual Respect:

Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy has revolved around Core Values and pupils have been part of assemblies related to what this means and how it is shown. Posters promote respect through our classroom and learning rules, as well as our behaviour policy.

Tolerance of others

Pupils develop an understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and are given opportunities to experience such diversity by visiting other places of worship to support learning in RE.
