Vision and Ethos

Our Vision

where we’re headed

To be a thriving and outstanding school where children and adults, working with the local community, have the opportunity to become the best they can be.

Inspiring belief… is a central part of this vision:

in ourselves – through progression and fulfilment
in each other – through motivation and teamwork
in the children – through showing them their potential
in the parents – through building trust by results
in God – through whom we discover the worth of every person.

Our Purpose

what we’re here to do

To provide an environment and education that prepares and inspires every child for life.

Our Values

who we are

These values are important to us as a school. They are always front of mind as we seek together to achieve our vision.

Friendship

We look out for everyone.

We put safety first and we do all we can to ensure that people’s needs are met.

Trust

We work together.

We act like a family who support and motivate one another.

Endurance

We aim for the best.

We do all we can to ensure the highest quality in every area – our children deserve nothing less.

Hope

We look to the future.

We are positive and seek opportunities to improve, overcoming obstacles to achieve our goals.

Our Faith

what we believe

Our understanding of who God is, as expressed in the Christian faith, and who he made each of us to be provides the foundation for our vision, purpose and values.

Friendship

friendship with God
and each other

Christians believe in one God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit in perfect relationship. But he invites us into relationship with him and calls us to live in community with those around us.

Following God’s example, this we do by expressing:

  • compassion
  • forgiveness
  • understanding
  • generosity

Trust

faith in God
and each other

Throughout human history God has called people to put their trust in him as our Maker and Saviour, and time and again has shown himself to be trustworthy.

With God at the centre of our community we can trust him and each other by:

  • praying for our school
  • working together
  • helping one another

Endurance

never giving up on God
or each other

Even when people go away from God his love perseveres. Jesus endured so much – even death on a Roman cross – all for us. And when we encounter difficulties in life God calls us to keep on going and gives us his help.

Following God’s example, perseverance means:

  • keeping going when things are tough
  • remembering difficulties help us to grow

Hope

knowing that with God
the best is yet to come

Christian hope is rooted in God’s own character: he is perfectly good, and wants the absolute best for our future. In Jesus’ resurrection we see that nothing can defeat God’s plans.

Knowing this means we’re not limited by the past but hopeful for the future, because we have:

  • belief in God
  • belief in each other
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
Colossians 3:15
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11
“We know that trouble produces endurance, endurance brings God’s approval, and his approval creates hope. This hope does not disappoint us.
Romans 5:3-4
May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13
