Our vision & motto alongside our values will be exemplified through our school mission statement. Knowing that “with God all things are possible” we will:  

  • Foster a community where strong caring relationships, built on Christian values, promote good mental health and wellbeing in which everyone feels loved and nurtured.

  • Model forgiveness and reconciliation in our behaviour and relationships with one another that mirror our Christian character.

  • Have belief in ourselves, in others and in the work that we do.

  • Provide a rich, varied and creative curriculum that inspires all to be aspirational so that we can pursue Gods purpose for us.

  • Value collective worship and times for spiritual reflection that enhances and provides opportunities for spiritual development.

  • Develop a PSHE and RSE curriculum that empowers all to be respectful to difference and diversity and sensitive to the wants and needs of others.

  • Have the resilience needed to face the challenges of modern Britain and the wider global community.

“This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Parents can feel confident that careful procedures are in place to ensure that all staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children. Staff hope that parents and children will feel free to talk about any concerns or worries which may affect educational progress and that they will see the school as a safe place. Children will be taken seriously if they seek help from a member of staff. Parents will normally be consulted and their consent obtained before any referral is made to an agency outside the school under local “children in need” procedures. However, staff cannot guarantee to consult parents first, or to keep children’s concerns confidential, if referral must be made to the appropriate agencies in order to safeguard the child’s welfare”.
