Vision, Values and Aims
Our school mission statement is:
'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.' Philippians 4:13
Our Church School inspires everyone to reach their unique and full potential in a happy and encouraging Christian atmosphere. We encourage our children to learn as much as possible and achieve their individual potential whilst developing respect and consideration for others in a joyful and safe Christian atmosphere.
Through Christian values of: trust, friendship, compassion and forgiveness, children are actively supported to believe they can be successful and achieve.
We have identified four core values; trust, friendship, compassion and forgiveness. Each half term, the whole school will focus on one particular value to explore at a deeper level.
Whilst we believe that every child should achieve their full potential in the image of God, we are committed to ensuring we develop the whole child, linked to the Church of England's vision July 2016 of 'life in all its fullness'. We deliver a broad and exciting curriculum and a shared love of life and learning.
Trust – ‘Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.’ (Psalm 20:7)
Friendship - ‘A friend loves at all times.’ (Proverbs 17:17)
Compassion – ‘Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.’ (1 Peter 3:8)
Forgiveness – ‘Bear with each other and forgive whatever complaints you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.’ (Colossians 3:13)
