“We endeavour to support every member of our school community as they grow to fulfil their true potential. We welcome them into an atmosphere of Christian trust and sharing, we build their confidence and take pride in their achievements.”
To deliver this, we will:
1 Celebrate every child's unique qualities and achievements;
2. Establish a culture which reflect Christian values and provides opportunities to explore the world around us with a sense of awe and wonder;
3. Challenge everybody to reach beyond their comfort zone, to take reasonable risks and stretch beyond that which is easily achievable;
4. Demonstrate care for each other, the environment and the wider community;
5 Commit to an active and effective partnership with parents;
6 Continue to develop a culture where we are always looking to further improve the standard of teaching and learning.
We will know we are achieving this when we can recognise the school as a place where the Kingdom of God can be seen outworking in practical reality. It will be a place where there is welcome and hospitality, encouragement and comfort, trust and understanding, good things happen and everyone enjoys being here. The school feels very much alive and will both benefit and be supported by the local community.
"The school provides very rich learning experiences through visits out for pupils, visitors to the school and additional activities...these make an outstanding contribution to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development."
"Behaviour in lessons and around the school is exemplary. The warm and friendly atmosphere within the school creates a strong sense of community. This nurtures pupils exceptionally well and enables them to develop and grow within a very happy and safe environment."
"In lessons, pupils work with commitment and high levels of concentration....Their engagement is total and they work outstandingly well to support one another's learning."
