Our Vision

cherish everyone, flourish together, serve others

Our vision is steeped in the theological teaching of St Peter, ‘God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessings.’ (1 Peter 4:10)

We will deliver our vision by enabling:

  • Mutual respect
  • The curiosity to question
  • The confidence to challenge
  • The resilience to be challenged
  • & providing the knowledge and tools to succeed

So that we may:

  • Ignite a life-long love of learning

We will live our vision by:

  • Being valuable members of society
  • Making meaningful contributions to the local and wider community
  • Enriching the lives of others

Our vision is shared amongst our community in the form of six important life values. The values are "awarded" to pupils who have demonstrated them, in the form of a soft toy 'values owl' and certificate each week and celebrated in worship. Our values are:

So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:12)

Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. (Thessalonians 5:11)

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32)

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope. (Romans 5:3-5)

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13)

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! (Psalm 95:2)

These values embrace the Church of England's Vision for Education: Valuing All God's Children (2017) and the Church's stance on mental health and well-being (2018). See also:
