Vision & Values


"Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of God"

We strive to provide an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice, alongside an understanding of core values and aims. They provide us with a sense of identity and belonging that creates our learning community – all of us working together to learn and grow. We celebrate diversity, and are committed to the principles of inclusion and equality of opportunity.

Children are encouraged to be courageous with their learning, taking on new challenges and growing in confidence so that they solve problems and overcome difficulties. We instill a sense of compassion and love through the collaborative and supportive way the children work with each other, making friendships that are respectful and kind. The children understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, helping them to view themselves as learners and giving purpose to what they are learning. We constantly reflect and review, helping us to improve and strive to be the best we can be.

Our Aims:

  • We support pupils to explore spiritual themes and reflect on their big questions about life and existence.
  • As a school with a church foundation, Christian values of Love, Kindness, Cooperation, Aspiration, Resilience, Courage and Honesty underpin everything we do.
  • We foster a positive and compassionate environment in which all children flourish
  • We value the contribution children make to the life of our school.
  • We aim to promote sustainability and an awareness of ECO and global issues.
