        Our Vision

        We have a vision of a community in which each person (child and adult) is offered the opportunity to fulfil their full potential and to understand themselves and be valued for who they are. Through a stimulating and challenging learning environment, we pursue academic excellence and seek the flourishing of all members of the school community. As inclusive and caring church schools, our commitment is to help pupils become thoughtful, open-minded and compassionate human beings who have the knowledge, skills and motivation they need to bring about positive transformation in the world. This is because we know we are all God’s children and all can articulate this.

        “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can.”        

         John Wesley

        The curriculum is at the heart of our school and central to achieving our vision because it is through a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum that a life-long passion for learning is ignited and children are given the best possible chance to succeed. We recognise that children are created in the image of God but also value their individuality as they explore their own God given talents and are treated with respect and dignity at all times.

        Our intent is to give all members of our community every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. We believe that our broad and balanced curriculum, underpinned by British and Christian values and rich in language, knowledge and skills, plays a major part in delivering excellence, which permeates through every element of school life. Our curriculum development journey will always be ongoing as we are constantly revisiting and revising our curriculum design in light of research and our children’s needs. Our curriculum drivers for the journey are….

        • Respect
        • Personal growth and success
        • Spirituality
        • Community– local and global
