Visions and Values

School Vision Statement: 

We believe that ‘Everyone is different. Everyone is special’. As Jesus taught us to love unconditionally, so we strive to nurture respect for all; to provide a rich and stimulating curriculum that considers the individual; and to care for the intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of our whole school community - encouraging positive engagement with the wider world, as affirmed through our school values and parable of the Good Samaritan. 

Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God …' and, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.” Luke 10:27 

The art work above reflects our school vision and values   which were created collaboratively by children, staff, parents and governors.

School values

Our school values of friendship, forgiveness, trust, justice and hope are shared, understood and practised by the whole school community, with specific exploration through collective worship.

Church Links

Our Links with St. Andrews Church are an important part of school life and support the school’s Christian ethos. Father Darren McFarland leads Collective worship in school each week. The children are involved in preparing and attending services that parents are warmly invited to enjoy also. These include Harvest, Remembrance Day, Christmas and Easter services.

Parents are also frequently invited to remain for refreshments and to meet Father Darren.

See the church's website for more information.
