Our School Vision



Our Vision Statement

Our school community lives life in all its fullness:

Through a love of learning,

By having a sense of unity,

Understanding right and wrong,

Being able to persevere through life’s challenges

With dignity and respect for ourselves and others

And with hope for the future and all that it brings.


Our vision is inspired by Jesus' words and is brought to life in everything we do and all that we are. It is our vision for every member of the school community, from the newest baby sibling, to the oldest great grandparent; from the children in our care, to the adults in the classrooms; the support staff and governors who make our work possible and all who come through our doors. The vision is embodied and articulated most strongly through our Christian Values:



Our aims demonstrate how our Christian values are applied to the life of the school:


Dignity and Respect for Ourselves and Others

“In everything set them an example by doing what is good” Titus 2:7

We aim to:

  • teach children to understand and respect the beliefs and cultures of others and appreciate the diversity of the society in which we live
  • develop children who are accepting of each other and who form positive relationships
  • help children to appreciate all we have



A sense of unity

“Love is what holds you together in perfect unity” Colossians 3:14

We aim to:

  • be a highly inclusive school at the heart of the community
  • encourage children to show responsibility for themselves, those around them and the wider world
  • have a strong, caring ethos, based on Christian principles of love and friendship.


A love of learning

“Wise people are always learning, always listening for more” Proverbs 18:15

We aim to:

  • foster within our children emotional intelligence and a love of learning
  • enable children to become independent learners
  • develop learners who are thoughtful and reflective.


Hope for the future

“Be joyful because you have hope” Romans 12:12

We aim to:

  • nurture children’s self-belief so they have the confidence to be the best they can be
  • equip children with confidence for lifelong learning
  • foster a sense of empowerment, that we can all make a difference within our world.


Understanding Right and Wrong

“Speak up and judge fairly. Defend the rights of the poor and needy” Proverbs 31:9

We aim to:

  • teach children to show empathy to everyone, celebrating differences
  • help children to recognise that forgiving each other is at the heart of positive relationships
  • develop children who are able to be courageous, challenge injustice and look beyond themselves to consider the needs of others.


Persevering Through Life’s Challenges

“Happy is the person who doesn’t give up” James 1:12

We aim to:

  • to provide an environment with a Growth Mindset culture and ethos; where mistakes are a valuable part of learning
  • support children when coping with challenges, resulting in resilient learners
  • encourage children to have the self-confidence to step out of their ‘comfort zone’ and take positive risks.
