Enjoying Our Learning Together
Our School’s Christian Ethos
We had our Diocese Church Inspection in March 2015 and we are very pleased to announce that we have now been judged to be ‘good’ and made significant progress from the previous ‘satisfactory’ judgement. The Diocese inspection differs from that of OFSTED in that it focuses on how well a Christian ethos is explicitly embedded through out the school and how collective worship impacts on the children’s lives. Many thanks to you all for all your support over the years.

We all aim to enjoy our learning to create positive attitudes towards learning for life. The sense of ‘our’ creates a personal stake in a commitment and motivation for each individual involved. Learning is the key to our school’s success. Success that is built on togetherness, with each individual playing their role in the team regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, faith or religion. A role that is in pursuit of excellence, in which we all look to give the very best we can.
Six Aims, Six Key Values
To achieve our vision we aim to:
…..encourage the achievement of all pupils in every aspect of their education by providing opportunities for children to be confident, independent and capable which is recognised, encouraged and rewarded.
….. create and maintain a caring community by encouraging a supportive, safe, understanding and considerate environment that fosters kindness, trust and teamwork, along with the fundamental British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
….. to provide challenge that encourages children of all abilities to achieve their full potential through a broad, balanced, progressive and creative curriculum.
….. give our children understanding of, and respect for Christian values, particularly ‘Love’, ‘Friendship’, ‘Peace’ and ‘Creativity’, and an appreciation of all creeds, cultures and races.
…...to provide equal opportunities for all to develop cognitive, physical, emotional, spiritual and moral development, regardless of gender, race, ability, age, faith or religion or socio-economic background so that an inclusive culture exists in the school.
…… to provide stimulating experiences by developing a rich and varied learning environment which meets the children’s needs, teaching styles match a variety of learning styles and multiple intelligences, while quality resources motivate children to take their learning to the next level.’
