Vision and Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Vision Statement - 


We aim to be an outstanding school at the heart of the community.


Children, Staff, Parents and Governors will work together to provide a safe, exciting, supportive and stimulating Christian environment where learning is purposeful and challenging for all.  Through our creative effective curriculum we aim to develop confident learners, who are proud of their achievements and are well prepared for life in modern Britain.

Our Aims: 

  • to give all our children the best possible start in their education.

  • to provide a broad and balanced curriculum with carefully planned progression from class to class. We also work very closely with our feeder schools to ensure continuity and to minimise any ‘dip’ in learning that will happen at a point of transition between schools.

  • to make parents welcome and keep them well informed - both about what is happening in and around school and about their individual child’s progress and attainment.

  • to provide a secure, positive, stimulating and creative learning environment.

  • to have high expectations.

  • to develop each child’s self esteem and support their personal, moral and social development by encouraging them to feel respected and valued and to respect and value others.

  • to promote Christian values and guide children in their spiritual and moral development.

  • to promote Fundamental British Values.  In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.  The Key Values are; democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

  • to have a reflective staff who constantly seek to develop their own professional skills, are receptive to new ideas and well supported in developing outstanding practice.

  • to have a safe, clean, well resourced and attractive environment - encouraging a sense of pride.

  • to have a leadership team, including governors, giving parents and children an opportunity to be part of decision making processes.

Our school rules are:

  • Do my best at all times and recognise my own successes.

This means having a go and taking risks. Remember to feel proud of yourself when you learn something or do the right thing.


  • Remember to respect others and have good manners.

This means not talking in class when someone else is talking, to listen, be polite and follow instructions straight away.


  • Be kind and honest to others.

Do not bully, threaten, tell lies, steal, shout, swear or name call.


  • Look after the school environment.

This means taking care of things and keeping the school clean, tidy and organised.


  • Keep myself and others safe.

This means walking inside the building, playing safely and looking out for others.


  • Help my parents to make sure I come to school every day and get here on time.

You need to go to bed early on school nights and wake yourself up on time in the mornings. Make sure you have got everything ready the night before, so you can get off to school on time.


  • Speak to someone at school if I have any worries.

If you are feeling sad, or if your work is worrying you, don’t be scared to ask for help.


  • Join in all school activities including going on trips.

It will help your learning.


  • Read at home and do my homework.

You know what that means!


  • Wear my uniform correctly and remember my PE kit.

Don’t wear jewellery, dress in navy blue jumper or cardigan, white shirt (or blue if you are in Lime or Maple class) and grey trousers/skirts. Have your kit in school all week.


  • Leave toys, money, sweets, mobile phones etc. at home unless agreed with the school. That includes collecting cards!

Playtime Rules:

  • Whatever happens at playtime stays at playtime

Don’t bring playtime problems into class as this wastes learning time

Don’t be mean and make others feel sad


  • Be respectful with playtime equipment

Always return the equipment to the correct place after playtimes


  • Stop playing and stand still when you hear the bell or whistle
