Caring to Learn, Learning to Care - All Flourishing as Children of God
We are a Church of England School and proud of our strong links with the Church. Our commitment is rooted in the idea that we are made in God’s loving image (Genesis 1:27) and shaped by the teachings of Jesus. The school has a clear identity as a Christian school which comes through in the care of each other and shapes our expectations for relationships and behaviour.
We believe that our children deserve the very best education possible both in terms of the curriculum and of their development as individuals. We are committed to:
We promote our vision by living our school motto:
“Caring to Learn, Learning to Care – All Flourishing as Children of God.”
We educate for community by teaching that Christian values such as love, tolerance, personal responsibility and charity are important keys to establishing successful relationships in school and in daily life.
The school has a wide range of values from which children, staff and parents have chosen each year. We develop our understanding through our values programme.
Each half term we focus on one of the values using our times of Collective Worship to share our thoughts and to provide times of reflection on how best to apply the values to our everyday lives. Staff and children will also use individual lesson time to reflect on how a value has been or could have been applied in a certain situation. The focus is not simply on knowing what a value means but rather how to live it within and beyond our school community. We teach children how these Christian values are intrinsic to the British values which underpin our national identity.
