Our School Vision
Working Together-Valuing Everyone-Learning For Life
'Love one another, as I have loved you' John 13 v34
Our school vision is central to the relationships within the school community and when encouraging everyone to learn. The school council searched for an appropriate biblical quote as a foundation for our vision. They selected the quote from St. John's Gospel because it had relevance for everyone, regardless of belief and one that they felt conveyed the ethos of our school. The school mosaic, within the Peace Garden, also represents the positive relationships within the local community, showing children holding hands working together.
We are a Church of England school so have remembered our foundation when selecting 6 core values.
Our school values thread throughout the life of our school. We encourage all pupils and adults to remember them when talking together.
Each term we share stories from the Bible that illustrate the values. These are also linked to our Reflection Area, where prayers or reflections can be tied to the tree.
Father Patrick teaches us about each value and uses our ideas to form prayers.
Prayer and opportunities for reflection are integral to our experience at school. Through worship and the curriculum, the children demonstrate a deep sense of spirituality and the ability to celebrate the aspects of the world that they cherish. The rich curriculum offers opportunities to ponder and appreciate the awe and wonder of God's creation.
The British values of: Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance, are woven into many aspects of our curriculum. The children are encouraged to articulate their understanding of these values and demonstrate them in their relationships.
