Our Christian Values

We Stand Tall, Aim High and Love Learning

Our Visions and Aims:

 

  • To provide a welcoming and compassionate community in which all are equally valued for who they are, developing in children a love of learning and a desire to continue to expand their knowledge and skills throughout their lives.

 

  • To encourage the experience of Christian life and participation in worship.  We have close links with the Parish Church and children regularly worship in the church. Provide an atmosphere where diversity is celebrated.

 

  • To encourage children to have a sense of belonging and responsibility towards others in our school community, the local community and the wider world. For all children to feel protected and safe.

 

  • To provide a creative and well planned curriculum which enables all children to achieve the highest standard of work and learning of which he/she is capable and at the same time develop lively and enquiring minds. We want our children to be inspired by the quality of teaching and we encourage our children to have high expectations of their learning and achievement and to become imaginative, creative young people who can ask questions, make links and solve problems.

 

  • To help children to understand the importance of good health and a healthy lifestyle and to ensure they know how to stay safe.

 

  • To work together with parents forging strong home school partnerships.

 

  • To create a stimulating environment in and around the school, in order to promote cultural, aesthetic and spiritual awareness.

 

  • To allow children the space to play imaginatively and cooperatively, developing independence and resilience.

 

  • The school’s policy of inclusive education applies equally to all adults and children who work here regardless of gender, religion, race, background, specific difficulty or physical ability.

Heavenly God, thank you for the wonderful world that surrounds us

Heavenly God, thank you for the incredible children and young people across our diocese

Heavenly God, thank you for the amazing people who work selflessly with our children and young people

We are sorry that so often we mess up in our wonderful world, in thoughts, words or actions

Help us to see and to know how beautiful life can be,

Help us to let the beauty of our world and one another breathe

Help us to let the joy of your Spirit flourish

Thank you that through you we may have life, life in all its fullness.

Amen
