School Ethos, Values and Aims
Our School Golden Thread, which is based on Luke 6:31:
“Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself”
Our School Christian Values are:
How we understand ourselves and our place in the world: recognising strengths, weaknesses and having confidence to challenge ourselves. We care for the local and global community and our Christian values underpin our learning and encourage children to ask ‘big questions’.
(Linked to our UNICEF ‘Rights Respecting Schools Award)
The children are valued as individuals and encouraged to develop their full potential through a range of high quality educational experiences.
Aims of the School
♦ We work to develop the whole child in a secure and happy atmosphere.
♦ We encourage children to develop lively, enquiring minds, question and argue rationally, apply themselves and therefore learn effectively.
♦ We help children to become responsible, caring individuals but still respect the values of others.
♦ We foster a positive attitude towards the community and help the children to develop a sense of place within it.
♦ We help the children to explore the spiritual values at the heart of the Christian faith through worship at school and in church.
