‘Learning for Life’
We want our children to love learning, love each other and love God’s world. We want to instil
so all children can thrive and live 'life in all its fullness'.
Our core Christian values of are the foundations of our vision and underpin the Christian distinctiveness of our school. By developing a deep understanding of these values, children will develop the character traits that enable them to flourish and be inspired and motivated to make a positive difference in the world.
These include understanding how to build positive relationships with each other, having the courage to stand up for what is right, the knowledge to make good choices and the ability to respect and embrace one another’s differences.
We also recognise that these values are not exclusively Christian and are accepted by people of all faiths or no faith at all. Although these values may be supported and shared by Christians and non-Christians alike, children are helped to understand what is distinctively Christian about each value through key bible stories alongside other stories that exemplify the values. These show us examples of how Christians live their life and the lessons we can learn from Jesus. Children and staff constantly refer to the values in everyday life and by ensuring our values are the cornerstone of life in school, our children are helped to understand how the Christian values of Love, Courage and Hope can be applied to their own lives.
