Aims and Values
'All achieve; all create; all believe; all a family'
Parents praise the school's pastoral care, its inclusive nature and the tolerance and kindness which reflects the way pupils are allowed to express themselves. SIAM Inspection Report, November 2015
Our Christian Values were chosen by staff, governors, members of the PTA and pupils, we chose the six values we would like our children to learn to live by. Each value is the focus of our daily Collective Worship and of our PSHE curriculum. Each Friday during Celebration assembly, one child from each class receives a Values Award for displaying any one of our Christian Values during the week. The Values also influence our learning as much as possible and are usually a focus for our weekly Enrichment sessions.
Friendship, Respect, Honesty, Endurance, Responsibility and Thankfulness.
Our school vision is that we:
All achieve, all create, all believe and are all a family
Our vision relates to the Four Alls of Methodism which are:
All need to be saved. All must be saved. All may know themselves saved. All may be saved to the uttermost."
The vision for our school is that 'all' will achieve their potential in their spiritual, emotional, social and academic areas. They will believe in themselves and their abilities in all these areas and that school will operate as a family with a love for one another at it's core.
Our central Christian text that drives us is from John Wesley, the founder of Methodism:
