Ethos/Aims

'An outstanding school which gives pupils a very high quality, all-rounded education' - OFSTED

Our School Ethos

All those who visit and work in the school are expected to act in keeping with the aims and the ethos of our school. Through our core Christian values of Thankfulness, Love and Hope, within a distinctively Christian context, our vision is to ‘Lay the Foundations for Life’, ensuring that all children are happy and confident; achieving their full potential through focused, high quality teaching and high expectations.

 

Our Aims

We aim

  • for our school to be a place where everyone is loved, cared for and valued.

  • to listen with respect to one another and to promote kindness, caring and good manners.

  • to value and appreciate one another, irrespective of age, gender, creed or race, and to acknowledge that everyone has a part to play within our school community.

  • to prepare children for the responsibilities, opportunities and experiences of adult life.

  • for everyone to have every opportunity to fully realise their talents, increase their knowledge, skills and understanding and so make a positive different to the lives and lives of others.

  • to ensure that learning underpins everything we do, helping children to learn academically, socially, spiritually, morally, emotionally and physically.

  • to teach children how to be successful learners and to develop good learning behaviours.

  • to share the very best of what has been thought and said.

  • to try our best at everything we do.

  • to develop in children an international mindedness, encouraging children to be active global citizens.

  • to foster a caring attitude for the school environment, including the building inside and outside areas, equipment and personal effects.

The mosaics in our quiet garden, were designed and created by children based on our Christian values and ethos.
