Our Schools’ Federation vision
We will create schools with love, faith and hope at their heart. We will welcome and celebrate every child, helping all children to develop their character and a love of learning.
Our school vision is rooted in biblical teaching as defined by 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
And Matthew 19:14
Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not stop them because the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”
We welcome children and their families to our school without discrimination. We strive to continually build a community in which there is equity and equality for all. A community in which everyone shows respect and understanding towards each other. By doing this, we improve the quality of all our lives. At our schools we support pupils to be proud of their unique identities and to reach for the highest level of personal achievement and wellbeing. Our schools are spaces where our whole community will be supported to grow, learn and flourish.
In line with the 2010 Equality Act, we seek to ensure that no student, member of staff, parent or any other person through their contact with the school receives less favourable treatment on any grounds which cannot be shown to be justified. This covers race, ethnic or national origin, language, religion or belief, gender or gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status, disability, age, responsibility for children or other dependants, political views and social class.
How then shall we live?
Our Christian values help us both show and grow faith, hope and love:
