As a caring Church of England School community, we believe that the vision of our school should be built on a foundation of core Christian Values.
Our Vision and values
Our school is a place for all to belong. Through love, we nurture all to grow in their own unique way. We create an environment for all to flourish; to forgive, be resilient and courageous, making difference to our community and the world beyond.
Our vision is based on Matthew 13, the Parable of the Sower:
A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
We are encouraged to think about and understand that the smallest things have the greatest potential when they are provided with the best environment for growth.
We believe this vision and our core values help us to sustain a culture within which:
- We feel safe and secure
- We embrace and celebrate difference and diversity
- We appreciate and are aspirational for ourselves and each other
- We enjoy and persevere in our learning,
- We learn from our mistakes
- We recognise and respond to environmental, moral, social, spiritual and economic issues.
- We engage with the local community
We welcome those of of all faiths and world views to join our inclusive and caring school community.
