Our Vision and Values
"Giving children the keys to unlock their future."
As a church school, we believe that ‘Giving children the keys to unlock their future’ will enable all pupils to flourish within our care and achieve their full potential.
This is underpinned theologically by the words of Jesus:
”I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 16:19)
“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)
Christian values are central on our journey together and we particularly value
caring, sharing, forgiving, respect and questioning.
