School Vision and Values
Love Learn Live
We follow Jesus’ example by valuing and cherishing all God’s children in an ever-changing world. We are loved so we can love, we learn so we can grow and therefore live our lives to the full, flourishing in the eyes of God today and in the future.
Love your neighbour as yourself (Mark12:32) guides everything we do at school and beyond.
How our vision shapes the curriculum:
A Curriculum focussed on sustainability
As we teach our pupils to love, learn and live as global citizens in an ever-changing world, we know there will be many challenges ahead. Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time which impacts on all living things. Due to inequalities, global health issues, more frequent and intense natural disasters, natural resource depletion, increase in global temperatures and sea levels rising, we are now at a pivotal point. The survival of many living things and biological support systems of the planet are at risk. We have to act now.
We are committed to working together to educate our pupils about the importance of achieving the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) Sustainable Development Goals. We will do this through our curriculum which will deliver and drive key messages about each of our chosen areas.
There are 6 key elements of learning within our curriculum founded on sustainability goals. These elements are key attributes and skills which we aim to instil in our pupils:
The 6 elements and key actions are:
Knowledge - To know more, remember more and be able to do more for the benefit of humanity and the planet.
Equality - To know that everyone’s human rights should be protected and respected.
Innovation - To look at things in different ways and find solutions when faced with a challenge.
Legacy - To learn from the past in order to protect our planet now and in the future.
Partnership - To know that greater change can happen when we work together.
Sustainability - To promote the careful use of resources so that they are available in the future.
Our curriculum helps our children to develop the skills and knowledge they need for their future lives as architects, engineers, designers, artists and teachers of the future.
Creating a culture for our vision to succeed
Our STARS Christian values are the characteristics and behaviours we all share, helping to create a strong culture across the Trust. Our shared values help staff and pupils focus on making the right decisions, strive for high standards and help us fulfil our vision to love, learn, live.
