every Child flourishing
We see our role as providing a well-rounded education which enables each and every child to flourish academically and physically, emotionally and spiritually, socially and morally. The completeness of human flourishing is crucial to our work and vision for each child.
As a Church school, the Bible and its teaching create the inspiration for all aspects of our work. Our Vision inspired by Jesus' words recorded in John's gospel.
'I have come that they might have life and live it to the full.' John 10:10
The vision of our staff and governors and all involved in our provision is that we might enable each one to live life to the full and 'flourish', both while they are with us, and as they grow up and continue their life journey.
Our pupils enjoy a stimulating and varied curriculum, supported by a wide range of enrichment activities and extra-curricular opportunities. The uniqueness of each child is celebrated, and each individual is nurtured through the partnership of children, parents, staff and governors. The school enjoys exceptionally close links with our local Saint James Church.
Our school is dedicated to providing a place of effective learning and teaching in order that each child may pursue success in the classroom, on the sports field and in every other area of school life. Above all, we aim to provide a secure, caring and well-ordered community where there is an excitement and pleasure in learning, and each child is able to grow and flourish.
Our Vision statement, and the three core areas of flourishing around which our provision is planned, is best illustrated in the graphic below. Our 'Values for Living' and 'Behaviours for Learning' support each child on their journey to flourishing in each area of their development.
