We believe that an effective school is one that works at the very heart of its local community and as a Church school we believe we should not only be at the heart of the community but also serve the soul of the community. To this end, we foster close links with many local partners, from businesses who use the school facilities to local charities who benefit from all we can offer.
Every person and organisation who comes through our school gates have one thing in common - they share our vision and passion and plug themselves in to what we, as a school, can offer our community and to the mutual benefit of the families in our locality.
This is our prayer to you.
Help us to enjoy our school while we learn.
Teach us to respect ourselves and each other.
Show everyone how to care for each other as you care for us.
Give us the skills to use our talents wisely for the good of ourselves and others.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
Our School Prayer
Through roles as Learning Ambassadors and Junior Leadership team members, pupils model the school’s values and develop their own leadership skills.
From the SIAMS Report
Relationships between all members of the community are excellent. The values also underpin the nurture groups and the work of the home/family worker who provides a high level of support to pupils and their families. Her strong sense of vocation, along with the ‘weekly timekeepers’ award’, has made a significant contribution to the improving trend in attendance.
Well-planned RE lessons also support pupils’ spiritual development.
Many other local organisations and church groups also support worship each week. Through their visits, pupils experience a wide range of worship styles ensuring that school worship is both distinctive and inclusive.
The inspirational leadership of the headteacher and deputy headteacher, ensure that this school promotes a vision rooted in distinctively Christian values.
The progress seen in both the academic achievement and behaviour of vulnerable pupils is a testimony to the high quality of teaching, pastoral care and Christ-like compassion and care given to all.
The school’s core Christian values are made explicit and deeply embedded.
