Our Vision – ‘Together in Excellence’
Our Christian vision and mission
“Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12).
This is the Christian foundation for our high expectations for learning, achievement and behaviour for each and every pupil and for the way we work with families, our parish and our whole community. Our mission is to demonstrate the love of Christ by recognising the uniqueness of every child and providing them with an engaging, broad and balanced curriculum which enables them to:
- Learn and progress well academically, creatively, physically, socially and spiritually.
- Develop the essential knowledge, skills, and personal attributes that they need to succeed in the next stage of their education and in the whole of their lives.
In putting our vision and our mission into practice we have high standards and we have high expectations for learning, achievement and behaviour for each pupil. We develop every child’s confidence and create an environment in which they feel included, secure and valued. The achievements of all pupils are celebrated. Everybody is made welcome and we foster good relationships throughout the school. We work in partnership with parents and the local community and we offer a range of high quality extended services. The school promotes healthy lifestyles and care for the environment.
Together we will:
Show compassion to everyone
Show courage in all that we do
Show forgiveness to each other
Show thankfulness for all that we have
We value everyone’s contribution to the life of the school.
All staff, pupils, parents and governors are expected to share and uphold this vision.
