Vision and Values

Vision and Values

Our vision is that we are 'Inspiring Everyone to Shine'. We inspire and nurture our children to discover their unique potential. Individuals will shine with self-belief and go into the world with the determination and resilience to follow their dreams.

Christian Values are at the heart of all that we do. Underpinning our vision is an understanding that these Christian Values and our trust in God will enable us to reach our full potential. We teach children that Jesus said ‘I am the vine and you are the branches. if you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit’ (John 15:5). Therefore we believe that through our Core Values which teach children how to trust in God, we will inspire every child to shine. Our Core Values are: Creativity and Wonder, Respect, Aspiration, Joy, Empathy and Resilience.

Creativity and Wonder: Rich, stimulating and varied learning experiences

Yet you, Lord, are our Father.  We are the clay, You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand.Isaiah 64:8

Respect: Working collaboratively to embed mutual respect, celebrating differences between our children, families, school and wider communities

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Joy: Finding fun and happiness through learning and belonging

May the God of hope fill you with all joy…Romans 15:13
