Learn Believe Achieve
Hand in Hand with God and each other
We are a caring Christian community that learns together; developing the skills and knowledge we need to understand ourselves, show compassion and make wise choices.
We respect the beliefs of others and expect the same in return. We believe in ourselves and understand the importance of perseverance
We encourage everyone to work hard, try their best and have the courage to challenge themselves. We understand that everyone is unique and celebrate each other's achievements.
When we face life's challenges and opportunities we are not on our own, we have the support of God and each other.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
As a school, through discussions with parents, governors, staff and children, we have identified Christian Values and Curriculum Drivers which provide the foundations for the curriculum we deliver, takes into consideration the context of our school and embeds the school's vision.
Our drivers are areas that we value as a school; they give focus to learning opportunities and are embedded throughout teaching and learning, developing the child as a whole.
We want children to grow up feeling valued and knowing they have a contribution to make. We recognise and respect the range of beliefs and cultures in our world.
We aim for children will be excited by the real world, engaging in rich experiences to develop their imagination. We develop confidence by learning to manage mistakes.
We aim for children will develop their imagination using rich vocabulary from a range of books to communicate effectively with confidence and enthusiasm.
We want children to be healthy, both physically and mentally. We believe mental and physical strength is key to be successful and happy.
Our school’s Christian character contributes significantly to the academic achievement, personal development and well-being of all learners. Although we are a church school, we are inclusive to all members of the community we serve. Our aim is that pupils from all faiths and those without a faith feel safe and happy, secure in the knowledge that their beliefs are respected and valued.
The Christian character is evident in the strong sense of respect existing between staff and pupils, who are proud to be a part of our 'distinctive' school.
As a community, we have identified six values that are woven into the very fabric of the school which we expect all members of the school community – children, staff, governors and parents– to model:
We aim for children to make the right choices and decisions, being prepared to listen to advice and think before they speak.
We encourage children to try to understand how others are feeling and do their best to help and support each other.
We want children to try their hardest even when a task is difficult and use mistakes a way to move learning forward.
We value everyone’s contributions and believe all feelings should be considered. We are prepared to listen and share views without rudeness.
In school we are one big family. We are a community that looks after each other, welcomes and accepts others, no matter who they are.
We aim for children to show bravery in new and challenging situations. We want them to stand by our beliefs and stay to what is right and true.
