 Small school, big heart, aiming higher together

 

Our vision is to value each child to enable them to develop curiosity, ignite a love of learning, discover talents and reach their full potential in a caring and secure environment.

This vision is rooted in our Christian values of respect, compassion, friendship and perseverance that are at the heart of our school.

 

1 Peter 3.8:  ‘…be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.’

Proverbs 22:6: ‘Start children off in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.’

 

We demonstrate our vision through:

We love our neighbours; showing friendship towards all. We show dignity and respect towards the beliefs of others and the environment.

We value everyone as unique individuals and celebrate the diverse nature of our community and the wider world.

We ignite a passion for learning and curiosity to foster life-long learning through providing an excellent broad and balanced education to motivate pupils of all abilities.

We build opportunities to develop wisdom, knowledge and skills including within local and global communities.

We have high hopes and encourage all pupils to aspire to greater heights.

We foster the confidence for pupils to be determined and persevere in a safe and secure environment.

We develop and maintain a positive and fulfilling partnership between children, parents, teachers and all others working within and alongside the school.

We are content and appreciate what we have, and understand how our lives may differ from others.

We encourage honesty and truthfulness across our school community.

We pursue the truth and develop a sense of purpose throughout our school journey.

We are committed to daily acts of worship and connecting the Christian Values to the whole curriculum and to individuals’ personal spiritual journey.

We encourage pupils to serve others within and outside our school community.

We create a safe and secure Christian environment where all may achieve their full potential and feel a sense of pride in their own achievements and the achievements of others.
