As a Church of England school we believe that good education must promote life in all its fullness.

Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills – ensuring that our children nurture strong academic habits and skills in all curriculum subjects, allowing all children to flourish and reach their potential.
This links to our core Christian values of perseverance and creativity.

Educating for hope and aspiration – ensuring that our children through the curriculum and day to day experiences develop a strong foundation of belief in themselves so they can deal with challenges.
This links to our core Christian values of trust and compassion.

Educating for community and living together- ensuring that our children understand the importance of relationships and their place in the surrounding community. I am a person through other people.
This links to our core Christian values of friendship and community.

Educating for dignity and respect – ensuring that our children develop a strong understanding of equality and the uniqueness of each person.
This links to our core Christian values of responsibility and thankfulness.

Our curriculum educates the whole person with character development at the heart. We want to instill habits and reflective wisdom to ensure children can act freely and with creativity in the changing circumstances of life.

Personal Development

Through each area of the core curriculum there are planned opportunities to ensure that children's personal development is being catered for.
These include:

  • Our Christian school vision and values – perseverance, creativity, trust, compassion, friendship, community, responsibility, thankfulness.
  • Character development- civic character virtues of service, citizenship, volunteering. Moral character virtues of courage, self-discipline, compassion, gratitude, justice, humility, honesty. Performance character virtues of resilience, determination, creativity.
  • British Values – Within the Fundamental British Values aspects of the curriculum pupils are able to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England as well as accepting responsibility for their behaviour, showing initiative, and understanding how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely. Through this we embrace the following 4 strands integral to Fundamental British Values:
  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
  • Social, moral, spiritual and cultural development- We recognise and firmly believe that the development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally plays a significant part not only in their ability to learn and achieve but in their ability to relate fully to, and have the ability to, access the world they live in.
  • Personal, Social, Health and Economic and Sex and Relationship Education -The three main strands of this aspect are:
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Living in the Wider World
