School Values

Aims and Core Values


Our new mission statement...

“A school for all with Jesus at the heart. Recognising the gift of every child, we work as one to enable them to become the person they were created to be”. 


A team of staff governors and parents worked on refreshing our mission statement in the summer of 2022. The team looked at what the school represented and how this could be encompassed when also linked to the Schools' Core Values.

The theological route of this vision comes in Ephesians 4, v16:

 "From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."


The vision for the school is particularly relevant to the fact that we have a high proportion of high needs pupils and how we value all pupils. The children have a wide range of abilities and we value every child (recognising the gift each child brings). Our aim is to work together one body in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for the children.

  • An outstanding school where children enjoy, learning, achieve highly and enter into the next stage of their schooling with confidence ,

  • A place where children develop literacy, numeracy, creativity and communication skills necessary to fully access the curriculum and be successful throughout their lives.

  • A place where all children feel safe and protected; learning how to keep themselves and others safe.

  • A place where children develop in self-confidence, whilst understanding that this develops through risk taking and making mistakes.

  • A place where all children develop and grow within an inclusive environment which values and respects the difference between people.

  • A place where all children understand Christian values and are able to apply them to their everyday lives to after each other and contribute positively to the wider community.

  • A place where children will develop as citizens who belong to a community and who can thrive within a modern British society.

Our core Christian values are:-



We stand together as a school committed to positive and mutual support.



We have respect for all people of the world regardless of their religion, race, ability and sexual orientation.



We love and cherish the world and all God's creations contained within it. 



We believe in peace between people and know that this is the route to happiness.
