AIMS, ETHOS AND VALUES
Our School promotes the development of happy and confident learners, so that each child can achieve his or her potential.
This Mission Statement is set within the context of faith in God and recognition of our Christian tradition.
Our core Christian values that we build our school life on are:
Faith, Hope and Love
To educate pupils intellectually, socially, morally, aesthetically, physically spiritually within a school based on Christian principles.
To provide an environment where children can react positively to learning. This is achieved by valuing each child and by the effective development of his/her skills and talents.
To develop each child's sense of social responsibility, self-esteem, good manners, respect for others and self discipline.
To develop each pupil's spiritual awareness by promoting Christian principles, love of God and love of one's neighbour and by recognising and respecting other faiths present in our school.
To provide a balanced curriculum within and beyond the regulations of the National Curriculum.
To stimulate children's curiosity and excitement about the world and to encourage them to search for a faith by which to live.
To use the financial resources at our disposal to provide the highest possible levels of staffing, equipment, learning environments and surroundings.
Our Trust holds a fantastic website which is designed to be a central place for our Ethos work. Here you will find ideas and activities to support children and adults in developing Ethos activities in your school. There are activities relating to spiritual development, worship, Ethos to Go and general Ethos activities. Most of the activities can be downloaded as a resource card in PDF format. We hope you find our website useful and would love you have your feedback.
