Ethos & Values

Ethos Statement

Our school is a place where staff, governors, parents, children and the wider community work together to provide an education, which is inclusive and nurturing for all.

Our work is rooted in Christian values within a happy, safe and inspiring environment.

We strive for excellence.

Our Values

We recognise every child as an individual, promoting self-esteem, independence, respect and responsibility.

We aim to work in partnership with parents and the wider community, as we understand that this is effective in helping children to learn and develop.

We encourage children to be proactive in their learning by helping them to understand what they are good at and what they can do to get better. We promote a ‘can-do’ culture, and teach children that making mistakes can help us learn.

We have high expectations of ourselves and we encourage high standards in all that we do.

At our school we value:

  • Honesty, fairness and trust
  • Kindness and consideration for others
  • Politeness and good manners.
