What the school says...
Central to our ethos is the abiding Christian belief that every child should be loved and valued as an individual. Inclusion and acceptance are key principles which enable all children in our school to thrive and reach their potential. We are passionate about developing the ‘whole’ person and work hard with our children to develop skills of perseverance and commitment to both their learning and to their place in our close-knit community.
To achieve this we work hard to enable our children, who come from a variety of backgrounds and from a very wide catchment area, to see themselves as one body through our Acts of Collective Worship, our House Team activities and through special days such as Maths Days and special weeks such as Book Week. Our children are actively encouraged to serve others and take on responsibilities within our school community. Children in Years 5 and 6 apply for their “jobs” each September and carry them out to a very high standard. Their roles are real ones and not completing tasks leaves a hole in the school’s operation! The younger children, noting how the older ones have particular jobs and responsibilities within school, aspire to be just like them. Our greatest delight is when children notice a gap in our organisation and offer to fill it!
Ours is a peaceful, though happy, lively and busy school. Enthusiasm is evident but conflict is rarely seen. Our Christian ethos, which has the repair of relationships and an understanding of forgiveness at its heart, contributes to this. We manage any upsets using Restorative Justice principles; all of our children are taught about their feelings so there is a high level of emotional literacy, and we educate our older children in conflict management so they can be Playground Peacemakers should the need arise. Forgiveness is key as we value repairing and maintaining relationships and we do not seek to allocate blame. In addition to this, adults in school model Christian Values of Community and Love with the whole school community and our children are witnesses of this on a daily basis. The older children, having grown up within this nurturing environment, naturally care for the younger children. Ours is also a very friendly school. Children and staff joining us always comment on how quickly they feel at home. Relationships between staff and children, and staff and parents or carers are very strong. Visitors frequently comment on the warm atmosphere. The close relationships, continually nurtured, result in trust between members of our school community. ...Read more
