Our Vision, Ethos and Christian Values

ETHOS STATEMENT

Recognising its historical foundation our school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and its partnership with the church at parish and diocesan level. Our school aims to serve the community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. The school encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all pupils.

SCHOOL VISION

Our school looks to develop and nurture the Christian values upon which it was founded by fostering a welcoming, caring, and stimulating environment ensuring attitudes of tolerance, care and forgiveness (1). We challenge and encourage pupils and staff to strive for the highest standards, not only academically but also in the fullness of life (2).  We seek to help our pupils become confident, creative and curious individuals. Through a dynamic and creative approach to the curriculum, we inspire a love of learning in children and encourage everybody to discover something they love. We encourage self-esteem and spiritual development in each child; celebrating success, a spirit of respect, partnership and collaboration, in a framework of world diversity (3)
