Vision Statement

VISION STATEMENT:

As a church school we believe that our children should have the opportunity to learn in a Christian environment. We promote the importance of lifelong learning and value the spiritual, moral, physical, cultural and social development of each child in an ever changing world.

OUR AIMS ARE TO:

  • Assist the children to become efficient and independent learners
  • Help each child to maximise progress to their own individual abilities
  • Inspire and stimulate the children in order to foster a love of learning and inquiry
  • Foster spiritual, cultural, moral and social awareness within a Christian ethos
  • Develop each child's strengths and provide support for their weaknesses
  • Encourage positive learning behaviours of persistence, organisation, getting along, confidence and resilience.

THE SCHOOL WILL:

We, both as individual staff and as a whole school will do our best to:

  • Provide a safe, caring and stimulating learning environment which reflects Christian Values;
  • Provide a curriculum which challenges and meets the needs of every child to reach their potential and fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum;
  • Value each child as an individual and encourage your child to show friendship and respect for others by abiding by the school Behaviour Policy;
  • Keep you informed about your child’s progress and behaviour, as well as their termly curriculum;
  • Set regular and appropriate homework and provide helpful information and training sessions to help support your child at home;
