As a Church of England School, we are a caring, nurturing and inclusive family environment, committed to supporting all within the local community. Like a garden bursting into life and colour, we see everyone as a unique flower, having the potential to flourish and grow within the love of God.
We aspire to develop confident, resilient and compassionate individuals, who recognise the power of forgiveness and are courageous ambassadors for positive change in today’s world as well as tomorrow’s. We all do this through striving for the highest possible academic standards and progress, showing resilience in the face of a challenge and being good role models towards others. Our Christian values of acts of kindness, respect and living without harming others underpin all that we do.
Our school inspires all to thrive through empowering each and every person to take ownership of their destiny, both now and in the future, in line with the Christian Gospels which teaches that every person has a unique task to do with, and for God, whether they know it or not. As a result, we encourage members of our community to develop their own faith and belief whilst treading life’s pathway.
A Christian Mind to be Kind, Courageous and Successful
The following examples from the Bible support this vision and our school values:
Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.”
But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the LORD, “Look, LORD! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
One of the things Jesus was teaching was that we should serve others. If Jesus, who is Lord of all, would choose to lower Himself to do the job of the least important servant by washing His friends’ feet, then we should always be willing to serve others. Jesus said to follow His example. Foot washing was very common in Bible times, but not very common today.
Ask: What is something you might do to serve another person today?
Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.
The Good Samaritan
“Love the Lord your God. Love him with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.” Also, “You must love your neighbor as you love yourself.” 29 But the man wanted to show that the way he was living was right. So he said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
To answer this question, Jesus said, “A man was going down the road from Jerusalem to Jericho. Some robbers attacked him. They tore off his clothes and beat him. Then they left him lying there, almost dead. It happened that a Jewish priest was going down that road. When the priest saw the man, he walked by on the other side of the road. Next, a Levite came there. He went over and looked at the man. Then he walked by on the other side of the road. Then a Samaritan traveling down the road came to where the hurt man was lying. He saw the man and felt very sorry for him. The Samaritan went to him and poured olive oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them. He put the hurt man on his own donkey and took him to an inn. At the inn, the Samaritan took care of him. 35 The next day, the Samaritan brought out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. The Samaritan said, ‘Take care of this man. If you spend more money on him, I will pay it back to you when I come again.’”
